Why am I writing about my problems with dizzy spells?

Updated on May 16, 2013

Since I started getting dizzy, I have discovered that many people have experienced vertigo at one time or another. Everyone has a story to share. It seems to be a pretty common ailment. So I am perfectly aware that the diagnosis behind my dizzy spells may be terribly boring and my experiences uneventful. Still, I have decided to write about my journey to find out what is causing my dizziness and share it here on hubpages. Why? You may ask. Here are some of my reasons:

  1. Until I find out what’s wrong, this is going to be on my mind anyway. Hopefully writing about it will keep me from dwelling on all the possibilities and let me get on with my life.
  2. I’m not a very observant person and I often forget and confuse the details in my life. Hopefully writing it all down will help me remember the answers when the doctors ask me those annoying questions, like “What are you here for today?”.
  3. Nobody really wants to hear me talk about my problems all the time, so hubpages gives me an audience that is free to ignore me without feeling bad about it.
  4. I think writing about my personal life will help me develop depth and feeling that will come through in my other writing and hopefully make me a better writer all around.
  5. Maybe I can be an encouragement to someone else going through something similar.
  6. Perhaps I will have something really horrible and God will work a miraculous healing and it will be more believable if you have been on the journey with me.
  7. I am always looking for something new to write about and who doesn’t like to talk about their health.
  8. Hopefully this will be another way to glorify God in my day to day living.
  9. Ok, this one is going to sound strange, but I hope that I can make you laugh.

Let me explain. I have always wanted to be a funny writer but I suffer greatly from SCS (Serious Christian Syndrome). My sense of humor just doesn’t come through very much in my hubs. However, when I was a child and would be sick or in pain it would make me talk a lot and apparently I was pretty funny. I wouldn’t remember what I said, but it would always make my mom laugh. I can remember her sitting beside me in the middle of the night, tears streaming down her face, shaking with laughter at whatever I was rambling about it, trying so hard to hide it but finally giving up. It wasn’t just her that found me funny at these times. When I was 18, I had surgery for a severe burn on my hand. I didn’t have insurance so I couldn’t afford the anesthesia. Instead they gave me different medication to make me sleep and not remember. However, instead of putting me to sleep, it made me talk. I talked the whole three and a half hours of the surgery. I don’t remember much, but my mom told me the whole team was laughing when they came out to tell her I was finished.

So hopefully, if I am traumatized enough, I will finally have something funny to say.

10. Finally #10. I wouldn't be much of a hubber if I wasn't thinking of hits and hub scores and a couple extra pennies thrown at me by adsense :)

So these are some of the reasons that I am going to share this possibly tedious journey with you. There are also a few things you should know about me so that you don’t think I’m totally insensitive to my situation. (in case some of my natural sarcasm and attitude show through)

  1. When I was young, I gave my life entirely to God. This means that, in theory, I am (usually) ok with anything that he allows to happen to me. I still get scared and worried and sometimes upset and angry like most people, but I usually don’t dwell on it for very long. God is good about reminding me that he has it all under control. I know that He will always take care of me, and I also know that this does not mean that he will stop unpleasant things from occurring. Rather, He will be with me no matter how light or dark the path ahead becomes. He knows about everything I go through and is right there holding my hand.
  2. I also have retained that irrational belief I had as a teenager that I am indestructible. This helps me face the world with very little worry or fear. I always know that I will always end up ok. Even if I don’t know what ok looks like.
  3. Everything in life is an adventure and I am always interested to find out how things will turn out in the end.
  4. I like to think that my faith will keep me steady through anything. If this turns out to be bad, it will be interesting to see how strong my faith really is.

You are invited to take a peek into my personal life as I embark upon this probably overdramatized journey to find out what is wrong with me. If you want, you may share my fears and worries. You are welcome to be appalled or encouraged by my attitude and experiences. Hopefully it won’t be too boring. Just keep one thing in mind; in the end I may find out that this is all because I’m allergic to smog. So it might not be very exciting. But don’t worry; I won’t be offended if no one reads these hubs. I know it may turn out to be a very boring venture.

      Hi April

      I will be the first to comment. Probably writing this hub made you feel better to begin with.

      I did sense like you felt you needed to get this off your chest. Sometimes writing it confirms that everything is ok.

      God can confirm all for us, at any time as he knows all, however just to run something by with other friends at times gives us a sense of feel good.

      With that all said I have no doubt in my heart that all is well, however I am not sure why you have these dizzy spells, only God knows, however there is a good reason behind it.

      Great hub and hope you have a good day
