But I didn't last long before the dizziness got the better of me. Sometimes the dizziness magically went away and I felt normal. Other times it was kind of persistent and annoying. I managed to have a successful dinner out with Cindi without it bothering me.
Monday, when my alarm went off to get ready for work, I felt dizzy immediately upon waking up. I took a pregnancy test, just in case, but it was negative. I assessed my options and decided I'd go to see a doctor instead of going into work all messed up.
After a bunch of questions and tests, I was diagnosed with an inner ear issue or vertigo. I was told that it was most likely a virus in my inner ear, which couldn't be helped with medication, but I could take something for the dizziness. I got a prescription for that, and then headed home to spend the rest of the day dealing with my dizzy/vertigo issue. Oh and playing with Clyde, who was more than happy to have me home.
I did do something productive. I made myself this stack of pancakes.
They are actually zucchini, spice, pecan pancakes from The Flexitarian Diet.
They were delicious, and I demolished this whole stack.
I also read a lot more of my book club book and actually made a decent dent in it, covering a couple hundred pages. I like it :)
I spent a while humming U2's Vertigo, http://youtu.be/98W9QuMq-2k, which has now become my theme song.
And I took about a 4 hour nap, because my anti-vertigo medicine made me sleepy. You know something is wrong with me if I nap, because I'm not normally a napper.
Later on, I made yellow rice with black beans, peppers, and onions sauteed with spices, and topped with shredded cheddar cheese.
I watched some trashy TV.
Who else feels bad for Michael??
Then off to bed I went. I went to work today, depite feeling dizzy again when I got up. I feel like it's worse in the morning and gets better as the day goes on. I'm really hoping it subsides by this weekend. I have some exciting plans. Stay tuned!
