So yesterday was 'Australia Day'- our version of the 4th of July etc. i was in my neighbours pool while the barbeque was being revved up, playing with some little kids. one dared me to do a handstand, and to my surprise, after all these years, i still got it! she then challenged me to do a tumble turn (somersault) in the water- which i did, but i went to deep, tore up my good eardrum, lost all equilibrium, came home and spent the next 3 hours vomiting violently, with no sense of balance.
 
when the puking subsided i lay on my bed as the room spun and listened to an audiobook called 'The Shack' which calmed me down after all the drama. anyways, im still feeling nauseous and my guts arent happy and im woozy/faint/wobbly/dizzy. it is the absolute worse vertigo i have EVER experienced. just thinking about it makes me anxious.
 
So i go back to work on thursday- i was hoping you could pray that i get well soon? that i can get over this latest stumbling block in time for work? i have been sick many times, but yesterday was horrible, bordering on traumatic. i actually thought for a split second that i was drowning cos without equilibrium, i didnt know which way was up and which way was down and i couldnt get air. it was dumb in hindsight cos i know i have bad sinus/ear issues- it just didnt occur to me that i could get this sick from something so simple and basic.
 
i hadnt even eaten really- just  bit of youghurt for brekky and alot of diet caffeine free coke. i cant believe that i puked for soooo long. my stomach wall muscles ache from contracting and im still dizzy and not 'right'.
 
prayers please? i dont want to start the school year on a downer-
thankyou family,

Oh Maz I am sooooo sorry to hear about the good ear going now too.  I so know how you are feeling.  When both of my ears went on me, it was all I could do to lay very still in bed, trying not to move my head at all, so as to avoid the puking and nausea.  My heart goes out to you and I am sending bunches of hugs and healing thoughts your way that you are soon all better.

You are a wild one!
You sound athletic.
Your tricks were entertaining.
Now ... Something is wrong.
You are sick from doing that.
I do think you need to talk to a medical
person.
It's a thing of Anxiety, yes ...
But now it's physical.
Do you have a doctor?
Maybe now is the time to find one?

I'm so sorry about your ear, sounds miserable!  I never would have thought that could happen!  I will keep the prayers going that you will feel better very soon and be able to start back to work on a good note.  Hugs!

Maz.... I think you should see the doctor... there may be something he can give you to alleviate some of the nausea and vertigo....
Lordy... will these things ever stop for you! You so remind me of myself at your age.... I had to FORCE myself to work everyday, FORCE myself to do everything because I was always soooo sick!!!! Things have gotten better with age.... Hopefully , things will improve for you, sooner than later. enough is enough!
Prayers my love, with every beat of my heart!

Hey Maz,

How you feeling tonight..........hopefully you are sleeping as I post this. Please take care of yourself.  I do not like to think of you in pain my friend.  You are deserving of much painfree time.

You know I am right here for you.

Hugs

Oh Maz, smhair
I will say a prayer for you. So sorry you had such a miserable end to your holiday.

Maybe you can get some meclizine. That always does the trick for me. I have severe vertigo due to a birth defect. I do vestibular therapy for the long run, but when I have an acute episode or if I ever have to get on a boat the docs write me a script. I know it's OTC in some countries, not sure about Australia. Otherwise, you should be able to get a generic super cheap. It will help with both the spinning/dizziness & the nausea plus if you're getting a headache it will probably help that too -- I always get headaches when I'm dizzy for too long from trying to make my eyes focus.

take care,
frances

thanks all! XXXXX

my doctor prescribed me a strong anti-nauseant and drops for the ear. as i am sick often, it rarely upsets or scares me, but yesterday was so bizarre and it was out of my control- i could NOT get to the top of the pool, my lungs were screaming, my head was spinning, my ear was throbbing and all i could think was "am i having a seizure? why cant i get any air?" etc.

mum is a nurse and she felt it was the 'acrobatics' in the deep end that hurt my ear and was responsible for the major vomit session i had. afterwards i just lay stock still, too scared to move my head, afraid it would make the vertigo worse. it really was a horrible episode and im still feeling the after effects- very wobbly on my feet, very fragile tummy etc.

your words of encouragement and support mean the world to me, truly. you are all a blessing.

Thanks-

Maz XX

 

p.s my principal rang today (i go back on thursday) and offered me a position that gives me more room to move than a straight up classroom teacher- i will be a Learning Support Officer who deals with kids with major literacy/behaviour problems. i agreed straight away- love a challenge. wink
