Less than Inspired

Nice, catchy blog title, right?

I am struggling through this craziness that has become my dizzy nauseated life... and it leaves me less than inspired to work or do much of anything right now. I've struggled through 5 days of work this week, and at the end of the day - I fight to keep going long enough to cook dinner for John and I... then I pretty much fall on the couch until time for bed.

Last night, I even fell asleep during my favorite show... something is seriously wrong with this picture!

This whole deal has been so strange because I don't have any warning really, just BOOM - reality check. When the dizziness comes on, I've tried everything I know to do... I've upped my fluid intake, gotten something to eat, made sure that what I was eating was primarily protein, closed my eyes and held on... you name it and I've tried it. Nothing seems to make a significant impact on bringing me clarity.

My plan is to give it a bit more time before calling the doctor back - because I've had slightly similar episodes before that last for roughly a couple of weeks then miraculously disappear. No one has ever been able to figure out what causes them or what is going on - and for all the expensive testing that has been done... you'd think by now someone would have an answer.

If I can find a few minutes this weekend in which I feel like I have both feet planted firmly on the floor... I'm going to give the treadmill a whirl. I got this really cool deal from my sister with Jillian Michaels workouts programed on it, but I haven't had an opportunity to test it out yet. I want to - really I do... but well... walking on a moving belt while you're dizzy - spells disaster, no?

Only 3 more hours until I officially have two days off... anyone know why Saturday and Sunday are the fastest 48 hours of the week?

Also - if a certain wonderful husband, were to... I don't know... read this and want to take his wife to dinner on the way home from work... he might just find himself called a HERO in my next blog post.
