tkdw_vlogs2017: (Concerned)
I've been dizzy since Sunday for no reason. Thursday it was gone, that was the only day it was, but it came back with a vengeance yesterday. I had to call into work and have Don take me to the ER in Cheboygan. It wasn't just feeling dizzy, it was feeling REALLY dizzy and losing my balance and almost falling. I DID fall on Sunday, the first time it happened. I went into the dresser to reach for a shirt and it was suddenly like my whole body was being thrown to the left and I fell down on my left knee. I had to just stay that way for awhile until the room stopped spinning. But then it stopped, so I stopped thinking about it. Then the next day it was back, and Tuesday it made me sick as a dog. I worked Thursday and was fine, but I woke up yesterday with it back and it's still here. The ER drew blood and did a CT scan, all of which came back normal. The doctor said maybe it's a viral infection of the ear and that I'll just have to ride it out. He prescribed Antivert pills, which we had filled at Walmart. They don't really do anything, though. This morning I woke up really dizzy and I foolishly bent down to get Sammy's cat food and I almost fell. I missed work last night, I can't call in again, so that will be interesting. I also can't drive on these pills because they cause drowsiness, so Don has to drive to and from work for the next 2 days. Ma called today and said she has vertigo, a permanent problem. I knew that, though. But she said maybe that's what I had too, and not an ear infection. She could be right, since my ears don't hurt. Well, who knows?

That biopsy came back okay, I don't have cancer, so that's one good thing at least.

Christine keeps texting me telling me it's not safe for my to work this way and that I need to call in for the rest of the weekend. I can't though. Yeah. Brad will be there until 7:30, but what about 7:30 to midnight? I'll be all alone and I'm the only one who can be there. We don't have enough employees to cover for people. Luckily Christine was off yesterday and was willing to go in and close for me, or that wouldn't have worked, either. This is just the way life is. I'm the only one there is. There is nobody else. I'll have to have Brad do things like change garbages, which would require me to bend down. Blah!

I guess that's all for now. It's really hot today. It's supposed to be in the 90's I guess. The AC at work is the only thing to look forward to.
