Just An Update

                 
Thank you so much to everyone for your very kind words of support and encouragement on my condition in my last post. Considering the state of my health these days, these words ring so true. With vertigo, it doesn't actually look like there's anything wrong with me but how I feel is another story entirely. Thankfully my episodes have still been mild but I'm also not over them yet. I've been trying to live as normally as possible and extra rest, generous hydration as well as limiting time on my desktop computer is helping me to manage it. What I didn't mention last time is that I also re-aggravated an old wrist injury. An MRI revealed a partial TFCC tear. I opted not to get the cortisone shot that my hand doctor recommended so I need to wear a brace to keep the area immobilized for three weeks and undergo therapy instead. At least there's a light at the end of the tunnel with my frozen shoulder and I should be done with physical therapy for that soon. I just really need to get myself sorted out right now so I don't know when I'll be back. I do really miss my blogging routine and interactions with you all though and I will try to visit soon. If it wasn't for my iPad and Pinterest, I'd be really bored.

Hi Dearest Rowena, I am so sorry to hear you are feeling unwell. I think no one will be able to comprehend the effects of vertigo unless they have through it themselves. Take it easy and hope that you feel better soon. Hugs to you!

Thanks for the heads up on the film screening. Yes the sentiment to this post is true. People with out health problems do not know how lucky they are. To me if you do not have chronic health problems you really do not have problems, everything else can be over come. So weird about your inner ear. I bet there is a connection.

Rowena, I love you girl! I really do. And I've missed you so much. Whenever my close blog buddies aren't around I miss them. I did the same thing when Kizzy went missing. I feel so connected to you two. The important thing is for you to take all the time you need to get better. That's my prayer for you. I had a series of health issues one year, so I understand how you feel (to a degree). Do you know I ignored the brace and instantly focused on your ring? HaHa It's so beautiful! Thank you for writing this post. It keeps up posted about you. That's important! ((Hug)).

Benetton is still around but never heard of and rarely seen. As of last spring there were two in MA, they are probably in NYC down an alley or something :).

I'm glad to see things are a bit better for you, it sounds like a lot of rest is in order. I'm with you on the no herbs so I hope you can stay away from them, I was thinking of getting a couple of acutorture sessions, but I haven't had the guts to make an appointment.

You are so funny with your actor/actress opinions, I don't have the same reaction to her I guess but she can be a bit annoying. I watched Barefoot Friends, with YSY and KHJ, and thought it was interesting, have you heard of it? On the 2nd ep. there is a shot where there is a giant spider {at least the size of my hand} on the wall right behind someone and I freaked out. It was gone the next time the camera was in that direction, and they didn't acknowledge it, but eew!

I hope today is as beautiful for you as it is here. Enjoy!
