First off- Thank you to everyone who has checked up on me! I appreciate it more than you know. In fact, as I now hate my family, I may take turns living with you all…
Most of you know the basics- woke up with debilitating vertigo on Sunday. Thought I was having a stroke because I read one too many articles about women who do not realize what is happening. Good news: No stroke or brain tumor (I have a friend who actually had a brain tumor so I realize that this is something that actually happens to real people and not just on Grey’s Anatomy) No heart attack. And on the up side, they took so many tests I can actually say that my health is actually pretty good. Except for the extreme vertigo that is.
Sunday is a complete blur to me. I am claustrophobic so they gave me so much medicine so I could go into the MRI machine. To say that I remember nothing is an understatement. My daughter just told me that I had an entire conversation with her about a book we had both read and I. Remember. Nothing.
Apparently I also had a dream where I was boxing because as the Doctor woke me up I guess I was saying “I’m jabbing. I’m jabbing.”
So apologies if I texted or emailed any of you on Sunday…
The biggest issue that I have is that I have been unable to read much. I read a bit yesterday, but that was really first time I did since Saturday. I’m also afraid to put earbuds in or headphones on so audible books are out as well. I have been binge watching “The Big Bang Theory” on HBOMAX. It’s comfort food because I don’t need to pay attention as I’ve watched it all before.
I’ve missed all of you and blogging and hope that this is the first of more posts! I don’t think you will get a Highlights post because really, do you need to see pics of my watching Big Bang?
One thing of note is that my daughter started an Instagram account for Betty.
I promise more pictures of my poor dog in costume…
Going to rearrange my blogging schedule (can I just tell you how annoyed I am at having to reschedule posts?) and at some point I will go into greater detail about my experiences this week, and hopefully I will remember more…#thisiswhyIdon’tdodrugs
