A Bit off Balance

Yesterday morning I sat up on the edge of the bed as I always so before I get up properly and I felt like I was still moving even though I was still. To say I felt awful is an understatement and I was rather scared as to how I was going to get myself on my feet and to the bathroom without falling over. I should have had a shower but that was out of the question. Anyway I got myself up, dressed etc and made it downstairs but spent most of the day sat down and in tears. I made an appointment at the doctors as late in the day as I could and, thankfully, DH was home in time to take me as there was no way I could have made it on my own. Turns out I have an inner ear infection which I did wonder if that was what it could be as I've had pain in my ear as well as a pulsing in my ear when I've been laid down. Unfortunately I couldn't get my antibiotics as the chemists here close at 5.30 and it would have meant going 25 miles to the nearest Morrisons! I don't know why the dispensery at the surgery can't do them after 5.30 but they only deal with out of town patients which I think is really stupid. So I am sat quietly catching up on a few blogs, waiting for Jess to go get it for me. Other than a bit of ironing I need to do that will be it for today. I didn't stitch on Quaker Christmas last night as I didn't think I could concentrate enough on it so I did a bit more to the second piece for the redwork exchange.

Hopefully I will be able to stitch later on Sea Stars and will be back in a day or so with an update on that and Rites of Spring.

Hope you feel better soon, I have had low blood pressure in the past that caused that sort of dizziness too, it is a horrid and frightening feeling.

Oh dear Sally....I know just how you feel...those inner ear infections just mess up the works don't they. I'm sure after a couple of doses of antibiotics you'll be yourself in no time! Thinking of you!

Oh Sally, I know just how you feel. After a trip in the US and China winter season I had ear infection which was because I'm not used to cold weather (no winter season at this side of the world) and had a severe dizziness, the sensation of spinning surroundings. Hope you'll get better soon. Just drink your meds on time and it'll be over soon. Take care.

Dear Sally, What a hateful thing to have to deal with. I'm so sorry. It does make us want to cry when things strike us at this age and time. It seems all we want is a little break!! I know you'll feel yourself very soon. I wish you good stitching times. Love, Deb
