Hello everyone is like to say a specially big hello to those of you who have replied to my previous with some fab advice and for those who have private messaged me. It makes such a huge difference to me in ways people may probably not realise. I'm very gratefull.
I'm slowly getting over the bug I had and while it has definitely altered my woozyness and imbalance, I'm no where near as bad as I was a few days ago.
I've managed to do a few 'normal' things this morning and for the first time I am spending a day on my own, as I used to. Sounds ridiculous but since February and after contracting a virus that left me with constant vertigo like symptoms, I've been afraid to be on my own...this was due to the soul fact that I was convinced I had a brain tumour and I was frightened that if I was left alone I could die... This is a terribly upsetting and embarrassing admission.
I've also come to see that these are intrusive thoughts and I've been able to link them to my OCD. I think my woozyness scared me so much that suddenly all my anxiety hit me like a tidal wave.
So today I am on my own. I have finished my household chores. I notice that at the beginning of my morning (from the point I wake and get up,) that the woozyness and my vision are more or less normal. I did feel oddly warm this morning (have been feeling this since my virus started a few days ago,) I'm also very snotty (sorry!!)
As I go about my business I notice the woozyness comes on until my vision feels effected. It's a little like watching things slowly move or warp.
But I did not let it frighten me and instead I've sat down with a cup of tea and it has eased a lot.
I feel quite happy to be on my own and am planning for a few nice activities I enjoy (such as reading etc,) for later.
I have another doctors appointment within the next week and she has said she may in some tests just to ease my mind - so I feel things are a little more in hand, now.
Sorry for the update... I don't really know if anyone is interested - I have been reading a few other people's posts that I feel relate to mine and so I always like to read about their progress. Perhaps someone may feel the same about this.
Also... Itching has stopped. Just feel very warm and sinusy but this is an improvement. Definitely.
Take care all x
