Dizzy-2nd doctor's visit and following week

Updated on May 21, 2013

Monday

Today I hope to have a normal day. Although I have passed on my responsibilities for staff appreciation week at school, I still have a lot to do. I am feeling confident that the medicine will keep me stable. I haven’t been truly dizzy for the last 4 days. This morning I see the doctor again; I am curious about what she will say. I may have to ask a few more questions this time. We will see.

Doctor’s visit turned out to be pretty uneventful. I had the wrong day. My appointment was supposed to be tomorrow. What can I say; I wasn’t doing too well when I talked to her. That’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it. They were nice enough to take me anyway. I found out later that three other people had done the same thing by the time I left. That made me feel better, maybe there was a computer glitch.

Since I was planning on being pretty busy this week, I had made my appointment for further blood tests next week. When I found out I had to go back today, I decided to go ahead and fast a while so I could get the tests done sooner. It was a wasted effort. Apparently insurance doesn’t allow blood tests on the same day as follow-up appointments. So my next step is to go back and get the rest of my blood work done and wait for the neurologist appointment. In the meantime I will go off the medication and see how I do.

The rest of the day has gone well. While I was tired this afternoon, I only had a brief second of lightheadedness when I got up from napping with my son.

I am starting to worry about how tired I’m getting. I’ve often been tired during the day before but I thought it was from being so busy. Now I’m lightening my schedule and still struggling. I wonder if it’s a real problem or if I’m just subconsciously reacting to what’s going on. Maybe it’s just my natural laziness taking advantage of the situation.

Tuesday


Today is the second day without medication. So far I am doing pretty well with only a slight twitch of dizzy before I got up this morning. I was hoping for a normal day, but my son was sick again this morning. So I was able to get lots of rest today. My husband came home early so I could go to a meeting after school. I stopped in the teacher’s lounge to see how the decorating went. I must admit, I was quite impressed. They did a much better job than I ever did. It looked beautiful. What a wonderful change. I am glad for this opportunity to force some new ideas and changes.

Day two has gone pretty well. A few times I came close to a spell, but managed to hold it off. I was tired though and took a nap with my son around 10 this morning. It’s pretty normal for me to be tired in the afternoon, or morning if I didn’t sleep well, but to be so tired in the morning after a good night’s sleep is a little less common.

Wednesday

Another good day, nothing eventful to report so far. I was able to help out with the staff appreciation lunch at school today. It went well. It was nice not to be in charge of it. I could spend some time talking to the teachers instead of making sure everything was going well. Of course I haven’t got much else done, and now it’s soon time to get the kids from school. I am hopeful that this normal period will last a couple of weeks.

Thursday

Tired and crampy today. I’m not dizzy but I feel overall yucky. It was a day of napping. I helped out at school, filling gift bags for the staff and doing copying for both of my boy’s teachers. Afterwards I had to come home and take a nap. After grocery shopping I needed another nap, and after taking the kids to the library and shopping for their teachers, I could have used another nap. Instead my husband was kind enough to take us out for wings. I was so glad I didn’t have to make supper. It’s early to bed tonight.

Friday

It’s early in the morning, still dark out. I hear my husband get up for work. As soon as I realize I’m awake I hold my breath. Am I dizzy? Is it happening again? I feel a little unusual but it’s probably just my imagination. I open my eyes and wait. Nothing happens. Sigh of relief, so far so good. I have been fine all week so why am I still worried about this? Usually after so many good days I have forgotten about it. Maybe writing so much has made me paranoid. Or perhaps seeing a doctor validated that something might be wrong. I will be glad to know what’s going on so I can get on with life.

Today was a good day. I spent most of the day babysitting an adorable and very busy two year old and managed to make it to this evening before getting really tired.

Saturday

Another good day. We took the boys fishing in Prescott with the scouts.

Sunday

Mother’s day, no problems, this is getting boring. I am mostly just writing for my own benefit so I can remember what’s going on. I won’t feel bad if you’re not reading anymore.

On the bright side, the boys took me out to for steak and made cards for me.

Monday

I’m pretty sure I won’t have another dizzy spell for a couple of weeks, if ever. So why do I still find myself waking up in the morning and wondering if I’m going to be dizzy again, waiting for the waves to come and the room to start spinning?

      Morning April.

      I'm reading these Dizzy stories as I find them and not in any order.

      Must say I'm having a good chuckle and either nodding or shaking my head.

      Two hours baby sitting is like doing a full eight hour shift.

      Right which one should I read next. Maybe the one about Vertigo.

      Take care and have a nice weekend.

      LOL Ghaelach
