I Must Make a Decision…

I must make a decision.

One I have been putting off for a while now. Unfortunately, I must cut back on the work I do, the reading, writing and blogging, due to severe dizziness and nausea.

It breaks my heart, for I love what I do, every single minute of it.

I had enough trouble years back when cataracts nearly scuppered me, but being a trooper, I found other ways to do things.

Now, I have a new and most unwelcome visitor. Something my doctor thinks is Meniere’s Disease. Sounds awful, doesn’t it?

I have been having what I call my dizzy days for years, days when I must give in and switch off the PC. Luckily, these only lasted a day back then. Then it gradually changed to two days, then more, becoming a big problem.

Then the earache began, and the dizziness became worse. I couldn’t work, couldn’t go out in the car due to travel sickness. At my age, I ask you!

Of course, this situation is ongoing. I have new pills that don’t seem to do anything and have yet to be referred to the ENT department at our local hospital.

In the meantime, I am reducing my computer time, as this seems to be the worst culprit. Looking on the bright side, I might get more writing done, away from the glare of that hypnotic screen!

I am determined not to vanish completely, as that will not do at all. I just wanted to let you know that things may look a bit different around here for a while…

  2. Life is like that isn’t it? Just want to make sure we know that we aren’t in complete control of things! Oh, so sorry to hear about your health issues!! Time in front of the screen is addictive isn’t it? Perhaps, you may want to start using a vocal voice recorder on your phone? That way you can record your poems stanza by stanza – recording each on the phone and possibly sending audio files back and forth with your friends and followers instead of having to stare at a screen. Another thing you might try is to send out one message to all your followers and not enable comments.

  3. I am so sorry. I’ve suffered from recurring vertigo and tinnitus for most of my adult life. I’ve learned to manage my positional vertigo and to live with my tinnitus, but it’s still disconcerting at best and disabling at worst.

  4. Awww, i am feeling so sorry, for this new constraint. Find time to relax. Working with the computer and on the internet sometimes could be very stressful. Sometimes you think you have to react immediately, and that is extremely stressful. Find time to relax. Best wishes, Michael
