March for Babies

Wednesday, January 10, 2007


I have a cold/cough/flu sort of thing. I think it may have taken up residence in my inner ear since I awoke at 2:30am to the feeling of the room spinning wildly about me. Yes, I was laying down at the time. No, I was not drunk. I FEEL drunk though. I did go into the bathroom thinking I might revisit what was left of my dinner but the nausea passed. I am left with the vertigo. I have had this before. It is called Labyrinthitis. Fun stuff. They give you pills to make the images your eyes are seeing correspond with the messages your brain is receiving because if they don’t you feel, well, tipsy.

How many computers are sitting in front of me right now?

How many attempts did it take to write that last sentence?

It is Wednesday and my doctor’s office is closed.

This isn’t necessarily a BAD feeling. One usually must consume large amounts of alcohol or some other mind altering substance to feel this way. I am getting it FREE!

What about Azure? What if I drop her, or trip, or just fall over?

What if I crash my car on the way home tonight? I could pass a blood alcohol test but probably not a roadside sobriety test at this point.

I am so tired. I need to sleep. Someone wake me up when it is time to go home.

Ugh - that sucks Blue. I've been there before, so I feel your pain. I hope you feel better soon.

Sounds like how I felt my whole first trimester and let me tell you, I can't imagine driving in that state. Can you reach a doctor on call and/or get someone to drive you home?

Please be careful with yourself! I agree with Cat, find someone to drive you home, if you haven't already.
