Well I am now dealing with episode after episode of Vertigo. I have never had it before, don't know why I now have it and I don't want it. I am close to losing my job because I am a machine operator and I can't work when I have an episode. It takes me two to three days to recover and they get worst with each episode. I have recently been approved for FMLA at work but that just covers so many days and I don't get paid for them.
I have been to my family doctor, who after several attempts to control it has sent me to a neurologist, who has sent me to a ENT. Now I am waiting for my insurance to approve a MRI so my neurologist can make sure I have no blockages so I can start on therapy. He tells me to be patient, it may take awhile but we will get it under control. Under Control !!!! I want it gone !!!
So after going through another episode this weekend and being in bed, countless hours of sleep, I should be caught up for a month or so, I woke up at 4 a.m., laid in bed until 5 a.m. and got up and made the decision that I will not be taken hostage by this crappy thing called Vertigo !!!!
I got on my knees, prayed for God to help me through this, told Him that by HIS stripes I am healed and from this moment on I am refusing to bow down to another episode. I can't tell you the last time I have enjoyed life. Don't know when I have had a good laugh or enjoyed friends and family. I have just been a hermit going from work to home to the darkness of my room waiting for the dizziness to clear.
I am praying for a miracle and the strength to muscle through this.
