Zombie virus be tamed!
Labyrinthitis is thy name!
So yesterday saw the first day of my 18 months post-tx assessment. And oddly enough, my lungs weren't high on the list of 'how are you doing?'
My broken head was.
After much testing, watching me walk, looking in my ears, listening to my symptoms, it was concluded that I am suffering from Labyrinthitis caused by a virus. And for those of us lucky enough to suffer from the rare disorder Labyrinthitis, it can last for weeks and cause balanace disorders, nausea, temporary hearing loss, and all that fun kinda stuff.
So...yay me! At the moment, I feel like my face is being sucked into a vortex. I keep swaying to the left even tho I'm sitting.
It's been fun.
Today it took me an hour and a half to get out of bed, and as a result I took my meds an hour late. I stumbled into the shower and contemplated sitting on the floor for it, but realized that being dizzy and wet and trying to get off the tub floor whilst dizzy and wet is a bad idea, so I was a big girl and stood for it.
What can you do tho, eh? I'm trying hard not to complain but I really hate not feeling like myself. I feel like I'm perma-tipsy and if you were to push me i'd fall flat on my ass.
In other news, there's a storm of 'historic proportions' gobbling up half of North America, mainly the whole eastern seaboard. It's supposed to start later tonight and last until tomorrow aft. We're supposed to get between 20-30cm, and seeing as I have my bronch tomorrow, dad and I are going down to TO tonight and staying in a hotel so we don't have to drive in it. The worst is to be between 6 and 8am tomorrow which is when we'd be on the road, so to be on the safe side we're going down tonight.
Tomorrow's bronch will see me requesting extra knocking-out stuff, seeing as I had the misfortune of being totally awake for my last bronch and thus seeing and watching and feeling the procedure. Something tells me I'm going to be horrendously sick after tomorrow's bronch due to a combo of labyrinthitis and all the fun stuff that comes with the wearing off of anasthetic.
Can I get a collective 'yay'?
