I have a harder time explaining the stupid Meneire's Disease than I do fibro. With Fibro, I just tell people I have chronic pain and can't do this or that because of it. Just had an e-mail from some friends in NYC that got us front row, center stage tickets to see Bob Dylan, Willie Nelson and Mellencamp in June. There will be ten of us. I certainly appreciate the tickets...they were hard to come by but I don't know what I am going to do because it will blow my ear drums and set the Meniere's off so that I probably won't be able to stand up to get home. I am looking for some really good ear plugs as we speak. I'm thinking of getting those whatchamcallit things that will make me look like Princess Leia from Star Wars. Headphone thingys that construction workers wear. I will be lookin' so totally fab!
The older I get, the harder it is becoming to explain my conditions to people. My friend as RA...I GET IT! When I say I have 'chronic pain' I think most people understand that more than if I go into the whole fibro-thing.
Dagger...or anyone...where do you buy those kind of headphones? I don't even know what they are called or where to look for them. I need something to REALLY block out the sound and vibration.
