i'm a dizzy dame
Today was one of those days where you have lots of plans to get things done but they don't pan out.

I wound up with mild vertigo for the better part of the day, so it was difficult to do artwork. I managed to pack up some orders instead and do remedial tasks that wouldn't be effected by my dizziness. But of course I feel guilty for not getting much work done. I hope this doesn't go on through tomorrow.

P.S. thanks to all who have emailed about Bernie and her husband. I have posted another update to her blog. I know they appreciate all of your thoughts, prayers and messages of support.
I had vertigo too. I started getting it last winter and had no idea what was going on. I went to an ENT who gave me my vertigo diagnosis. It wasn't bad enough to have that treatment (where they put you in a flat chair and move you all around) and after about a month it went away.
I hope yours stops soon.
Definately rest and don't drive when it is really bad; it cam be dangerous!
Hi Claudine - I've been lurking here, enjoying the blog. I'm a collage/assemblage artist and photographer. However, my day job for the last 17 years has been as a massage therapist. There is a very gentle, effective modality called CranioSacral therapy is very affecive with vertigo. If you google craniosacral & orlando, you should be able to find practioners. Ask around, the best referral is through someone you know. Good luck!
When I had vertigo a few months ago, I tried the thing that always work for my husband. Just takes a few minutes. Take a look at the Epley maneuver and next time see if it works for you!
