So most of you know I went to get my thyroid tested (came back negative) but on March 31st while at work I spun in my chair to get up and ended up spinning, standing up, and going down to the floor. In the ER that night I was diagnosed with a lovely case of Vertigo. For those of you that don't know what it is, it is explains by wiki:
"is a type of dizziness, where there is a feeling of motion when one is stationary. The symptoms are due to a dysfunction of the vestibular system in the inner ear. It is often associated with nausea and vomiting as well as difficulties standing or walking."
So since that ER visit I have been in bed. I had to go on short term disability and the only time I leave the house is to see a doctor. I have also lost my appetite and now lost 30lbs in 1 1/2 months...not so good. I mean I like the weightloss, but not how its happening. I also happened to have NO Vitamin B12 or D in my body. So every 2 weeks I get B12 shots and take a pill daily, and also for the Vitamin D. Tomorrow I go to see a Audiologist where they are proforming some kind of test on me, and all I know is it makes you dizzy (which I already am), it last 65-70 minutes, and I will have to wear some mask that looks like a diving mask. So this month has been VERY hard on me. Then not being able to find this website, I was actually freaking out. You guys have been my support group, and I needed to vent to you all, lol. To top it all off, a week before the vertigo hit, my boyfriend and I of 3 years broke up, and he admitted FINALLY that he lost attraction to me from me losing my hair. I think that hurt more than the break up did. Plus the fact that I'm in bed all day, I'm kind of stuck thinking about it all the time, and its been a HARD month.
But hopefully tomorrow and its crazy test will figure something out and fix me and get me back to my normal life. I miss working, I miss driving my car, and I REALLY miss my friends and feeling normal. I am so pale, and my parents told me last night their worried about me because my face looks sunken in. But I can't go outside, because I get dizzy. Its just a horrible cycle that seems to never end for me.
Wish me luck for tomorrow.....
