Good doctor visit yesterday...

Wednesday, June 01, 2011

ENT checked my ears and sinuses and there is no infection. She said I may have benign positional vertigo which if it becomes a problem (now it is okay) I could go to therapy to learn exercises to help with it.

I am glad no further treatment will be needed.

    My BIL has that. It can be very scary but he has learned how to deal with it.

Glad there is no infection or need for treatment. Have a great day!

I'm up to feed the cats but ....

Sunday, May 29, 2011

I think I will go back to bed after I have some prophylactic coffee (to avoid having a caffeine withdrawal headache). I hate when I get those headaches from not having my early morning coffee.

Today is going to be fun...taking time to do a few odd jobs like straigthening up my room and doing landry. This three day weekend feels like a luxury.

.... emoticon

Now that I had breakfast and my coffee, I am wide awake and I am ready to tackle some laundry and even do some yardwork....

    There is always something to do at home. My wake up brew is cappuccino..not as calorie efficient as your coffee. As for laundry, that may be my favorite household chore. I used to enjoy cooking, but I am sooo tired. Enjoy your 3 day weekend..before it is gone! Yard work should be fun too. Hugs, Jane emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Ah yes, the all important morning coffee. emoticon
I like mine bold and black, I'm on my second cup and the brain is beginning to function. At least enough to plan and fix breakfast.

Laundry is on the schedule for tomorrow but am hoping to get in a bit of yard work.

Have a great weekend.

Yesterday morning ...no internet...

Saturday, May 28, 2011

My credit card had been deactivated by the bank and I was not aware of that. I had a "starter" card and had forgotten to activate the regular card. My internet carrier still had the info from the starter card so my payment did not go through. They did not send me an email before turning off my service. (A bit frustrating.)...

Was able to make the payment by phone but had difficulty getting their number. Did change the card to the actual card. The end...

However, I forgot to spin the wheel for SparkPeople and missed my usual morning sparking....

But things seem back to normal today...whatever normal is....

    It really is always something! I HOPE you're having a normal day! Also, I hope the dizziness and headache are subsiding? Take care!

Today is Wednesday...returning to work despite not feeling well....

Wednesday, May 25, 2011

My doctor said my condition was not serious and therefore I do not quality for a leave of absence so I am returning to work today. I have had a headache and dizziness for a week now and plan to get a second opinion from an ENT doctor just in case it is an inner ear problem. (The docs at the hospital suggested this if my internist was not able to figure out what was wrong with me.) I was given a Z-pak by my internist but no change.

I am not allowed to be out of work more than 3 days without a leave of absence and I have exceeded that. I think I will probably be given a warning and be put on probation according to the rules at my job. At this point I don't know if the doctor changed her opinion regarding seriousness of my illness or not.

I was extremely upset yesterday through all the phone calls and have started losing my voice again but this morning it seems to be back.

I hope I start to feel better soon and plan to "stick it out" at work no matter what (unless I fall on the floor and injure myself). It all seems a little strange that we are not allowed more than 3 sick days in a row without a doctor's approval of it being a serious condition. Perhaps next time I feel unwell I will ask for a week of vacation (even though a recent email said the department was short people and most vacation requests would not be honored).

Talk about being between a rock and a hard place!!!! emoticon

    Well, there's work and there's work. Take it easy, even though you are going in. You don't have to overdo! Your health comes first!

Up to have medications and coffee, then back to bed...

Tuesday, May 24, 2011

I have to stay home at least today and tomorrow. Since I am on leave of absence (even though doctor filled out papers incorrectly) I have to give my employer 2 days notice before returning to work. I tried going back to work yesterday but only made it it through about 4 hours before feeling too sick to stay. I took some medications hoping that would help with headache but migraine meds did not work on earache or sinus headache (which I have I am not sure).

I still have some dizziness but it is not as severe as previously but I am going to take it easy today and rest as much as possible. Yesterday was my last Z-pak pill (5 day antibiotic burst). It is supposed to keep working another 5 days or so.

So I will have my coffee and pills and a small meal (cannot take the meds on empty stomach adn go back to bed shortly. emoticon

P.S. I have deleted my first video blog as I was driving myself crazy trying to figure out what I was saying (mumbling? or was it dysarthria? or was it something else?).....
