For the last week or so I have been home with plenty of time to write in my blog. So why haven’t I done so… There is something about my experience with dizziness that has made it difficult to be productive in spite of the fact that I’m not dizzy when I sit at the computer. The emotional response to anything that MS puts on my plate is multi-layered. Nothing made it clearer to me than reading My Stroke of Insight by Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor. The text is having a tremendous impact on my day to day experience with my compromised brain.. and I’m writing about that now- behind the scenes.
Look for that post soon.
Thanks for not writing “check in on this blog” off your to do list~
I get what you are saying about the dizziness. I had a similar experience during my first MS episode a few months back. My vertigo permeated every expereince. It hurt just to stand up. I was afraid to sleep.
Now I’ll be annoying… Have you been to the doctor? Are you taking anything to get rid of that feeling? I tried all the usual vertigo stuff but nothing helped. When I got my diagnoses they put me on Prednisone and that finally reduced the swelling in my head enough for the vertigo to work its way out. I hope you feel better soon. Constant diziness is awful.
I have not read Dr. Taylor’s book yet. It should go on my to-do list one of these days. Keeping up with our own blogs, reading the blogs of others, interacting with others on our blogs and theirs, while thinking and writing our own thoughts and projects takes a considerable amount of it. The benefit of Bloglines – I am alerted to posts of my favorites when they are up. I couldn’t keep track of things otherwise.
