Do you know what sucks? Vertigo sucks. My mom gets it during stress and I have it too. What this means is that your inner ear, which determines balance is off. It relays information that says: “Yes, we’re sitting firmly on the wall while the rest of the room spins”. Last night it got pretty bad. I laid down, enjoyed the room rotating in a loving manner then a couple of loops while I put one foot down to try to keep from throwing up. Sometimes it’s not all that bad. It’s a good indicator when I’m stressed out and need to relax some but sometimes there’s nothing I can do about the stress so it just gets in the way. Last night it made me go to bed which helped. We’ll see how well I fare today.
