I really can’t believe it. I was actually starting to feel a lot better over the last few weeks. I was de-stressing myself, my anxiety was curbed, I have been going in and out of stores that I usually find unpleasant, been to a restaurant a few times, a pub and generally been more active. I said to myself “Dar you’re getting better mate”, I was feeling really good and was looking forward to a game of badminton I was going to have that night…..and then it hit me !!
For no apparent reason at all. I was stood at my office front door, getting some fresh air and then I was completely overwhelmed with vertigo. If completely floored me. I didn’t fall down, but it was one of those where I had to sit down on the floor because leaning on something wasn’t going to cut it. (This has happened before when I was home in my kitchen about a year ago). I did nothing to provoke it, I was in a good frame of mind, I was just looking aimlessly out towards the car park and then whamm!! Have some of that !!
In less than a minute I was back on my feet and then back at my desk but with that lovely foggy head feeling you get when you get vertigo, a bit nauseated and a little off balanced, which I still have it 24 hours later. My confidence has been knocked again and I am back to being careful.
I wouldn’t say I’ve gone back to square one, I would say more like square ten (I know what square one feels like and that feels vile) but a setback none the less. I was able to continue with my day with no drama and I drove home with no problems. It’s just this horrible brain fog. I’ve taken Annadins but they don’t seem to work.
I did play badminton and that was alright, but the head fog, off balance and I guess the exercise itself totally spaced me out.
Oh well 3 steps forwards, 2 steps backwards !!
