A Step in the Right Direction

Since my last entry things have gotten worse, with the worst two days being this past weekend. Saturday and Sunday I was incredibly dizzy and the only time things weren't moving were when i was laying in bed facing the wall. Needless to say, I hated waking up and thoroughly looked forward to when I could go to sleep and close my eyes and things stopped moving.

Sat and Sun, it didn't matter what position I sat in on the couch, everything was swimming before my eyes. Even my limbs were wiggling away. I couldn't get comfy and couldn't even use my computer.

Then yesterday showed up. Yesterday was my worst day yet. I could barely walk, and by night time I couldn't even stand straight, my body was contorting to the right and squeezing me to the ground. With a panicked call to my coordinator updating her on my state and informing her that I didn't care if they admitted me, at that point I really didn't care what happened to me, so long as it was something to get me better. I went up to bed with the help of my mum at 8pm, took a sleeping pill, and knocked myself out into blissful sleep for 13 hours.

And then today...

Today I woke up and felt a little bit better.

I can stand up straight and not wiggle.

I can walk straighter and in a straighter line and not bump into things and weave in all directions.

I can sit in any position on the couch and nothing moves.

Hopefully I've taken a step in the right direction and am getting better. Maybe I had to get really bad before I could get worse. I hope the worst is over, and I hope this virus is leaving me.

So keep your fingers crossed, knock on wood, and say a prayer my friends that I'm finally getting better!

Happy Valentine's Day:)
