“The rumours of my demise…” etc.

I’ll take this chance to disrupt the normal service to do some personal blogging. So if you couldn’t care less about non-T&B stuff that gets posted here, just stop reading this post now, and go check out the latest info on Tiger & Bunny -The Beginning- U.K. premiere!

This post is mostly to clarify what happened last week, in case people were still worried about me.  Anyways, on Monday 23rd of July I woke up with a bad dizzy spell. And I mean really really bad. About 10 years ago I suffered from vestibular neuritis. It was – all things considered – pretty mild since I recovered almost completely within a month. Ever since then I’ve had occasional mild dizziness and sometimes trouble with balance, and one case of remission. Until Monday a week ago when I got a really bad case of remission and had to go to the ER to get some medication for the nausea (constant feeling of vertigo and the world just going around and around me like in a carousel, etc.) and also to get a proper diagnosis because I had been living abroad when I got it for the first time and they didn’t have my medical files.

As a result I have a packet of nausea meds that will probably come in handy if I ever have trouble sleeping (they did help with what they’re prescribed for but they also made me very tired), and a huge ass painful bruise on my left wrist where the nurse was trying (and failing several times) to locate a vein to stick an IV into. I also have a new experience of getting to ride in an ambulance.

Right now I’m pretty much back to normal, but the Twitter and Facebook updates were scarce for the past week because for days I was feeling too weak to keep up with what was happening. Sorry about that.

Normal service will resume now. Thanks, and thanks again for all the get well wishes!

  1. Glad to have you back! Sorry about all that trouble, especially the dizziness! I used to have BPPV (Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo) which means I had to sleep sitting up for about a year and a half. Trying to lie down or tilt my head back to rinse the shampoo out of my hair would cause a paroxysm of vertigo. Very violent, Antivert did nothing but knock me out.

    Hope this stuff works and that they can treat or better yet, get rid of it!! Vertigo is the worst. 😦

  2. Wo… don’t worry about the updates! focus only about yourself right now, take care and get better soon ♥

  3. Oh gosh, I HATE vertigo. It runs in my family. I’ve only ever had brief, mild spells, but even that’s yucky.
    Glad you’re doing better!

  4. whoa – had no idea you’d even been ill! hopefully the worst is over now and you can get back to some kind of normalcy. don’t worry about us, take care of yourself first and we’ll all reconvene when you’re better!
