Have you ever suffered the symptoms of Vertigo.
Well I have and do not wish it on anybody.
One day at my Mum’s place in NZ, I bent down to get a dish out of the cupboard and when I stood up the room just spun and had to hold on to something to stop myself falling. I just thought it was a bit of a dizzy spell from standing up too quickly. My eyes felt funny like a shimmering feeling and I still felt a little strange. I tried to ignore it as I usually do with these sorts of things. I drove my Mum’s car the next day and had to pull over on the side of the road as I seem to be unable to judge corners or passing vehicles.
So off to the doctors I fled thinking I was having a stroke or at least had one (probably because strokes are in the family DNA). Burst into tears at the door, they rushed me in and the nurses gave me the finger to the nose, smile test and blood pressure (which was a little high for me probably cause I was panicking) but seemed ok. The prognosis from the Doctor was that I had Vertigo. Never heard of it and never had it before.
He told me what it was and how it happens then gave me some sea sick tablets that never worked. It took me several months to get over this and I found it very debilitating. It never really stopped me from doing anything but driving and riding my motorbike was something I had to concentrate doing because I always felt unbalanced.
I googled it up and found different exercises which did help but it did keep coming back. I eventually had ‘Bowen Therapy’ done which I have no idea how it works but it does. Symptoms do not disappear straight away but within days it seems to fade away.
I actually go get the therapy done every time I go back to Australia just to keep things in balance so hopefully the Vertigo does not come back.
Well it has and have had it mildly for the last two days. As I am in the States and do not know of any Bowen Therapists here, In desperation I did these exercises and it seems it has gone for the time being.
I know of some that get Vertigo and have violent reactions to it like vomiting. Lucky for my I have not had those symptoms.
If I feel it coming on I do these exercises straight away and that helps shift the calcium crystals in your ears that cause this problem.
Here are two videos of the exercises so that if you are unfortunate enough to get Vertigo you can do this straight away to help fix the symptoms.
On Sunshine Coast of Australia
Yesterday at 3am we all got up and went out in the boat for a day of fishing. It was very dark but we managed to weave our way through the channels and eventually got out to sea. The Ocean was gorgeous and after about 30 minutes out to sea we were greeted by a whale that swam around us and then breached. What a great experience. Although the whale was young it was a spectacular sight as you can see. As always I was already taking pictures and was lucky enough to have the camera ready to fire when this happened.
I thought this video was so cool I had to share it. Just waking up with the ring would be good enough for me as I would not swap my husband.
Consider Yourself Lucky
Author Lesley Voth
I think I am very lucky in many ways
My roof don’t leak and I am warm on cold days
I have a great family that I love to bits
I have a healthy body, strong and never quits
There is nothing in my life that I want to change
To some it has been unusual, to some rather strange
To change my journey, the butterfly effect
Not have my friends, the experience, everything almost perfect
If it were different I would not be here writing to you
I may not notice that the sky outside is blue
I have a husband that treats me kind, treats me great.
There is only one annoyance he is a snoring bedmate.
They say that people who consider themselves lucky
A self-fulfilling prophecy, confident and plucky
Sometimes my life gets messy and gets mucky
But yes I consider myself very lucky
