Still on that boat…

Strawberry blonde in a dizzy world!

The good bad and the downright filthy!



Well the good is that the vertigo has settled down a bit (for now) yay! The bad is that I’ve been so sick on the new protocol I hardly leave the house to test out whether the vertigo is bad or not. The vertigo always flares up when I over do it, but you can’t get up to much when you can’t be far from a bathroom.



I stupidly (or impressively I’m not sure) attempted a couple of yoga classes that I usually try to get to on a good day. I managed about five minutes of the one at the gym and spent the remainder of the hour on the floor of the bathroom. I tried another class a week later in a rather posh town, I payed £12 to basically lay on the floor of the bathroom.


Obviously I have spent a lot of time in my own bathroom too. I feel like a hygiene inspector. I can tell you the posh yoga hall won hands down on cleanliness ( I may make them a trophy). My bathroom is pretty close to the bottom – I may catch something else to worry about if I’m not careful. Bring out the marigolds and the bleach?



Anyway that’s my thrilling post about toilets. I’m sure some news paper will snap me up soon to be a columnist – my life is pretty fascinating after all 😉thnzaobyth

Thank goodness I have some amazing people around me to help me keep my sanity and go on gluten free runs for me. Also it’s the small things that really cheer you up 😉

Who am I?

Was – independent, intelligent (with plenty of dizzy moments), successful, busy, funny (depending on how much Prosecco I and the people around me had!), quite stressed out but overall happy, without even realising how lucky I was.

Now  – ? just a mess really! I was diagnosed with Migraine Associated Vertigo (MAV) eight years ago when my life changed dramatically. It’s a variant of migraine that means I feel dizzy and tired nearly all of the time. If I try and do anything ‘normal’ this sparks of vertigo which gradually gets worse and worse until I pass out unless I lie down for hours, sometimes days. What this means is I spend 90% of my time in bed in a quiet dark room. Normal activities like shopping, walking, going anywhere bright or busy, the cinema even visiting friends who have patterned wallpaper or a gravel drive is a nightmare!

I’m continually trying new medications, all of them with quite nasty side effects (worsening of vertigo, weight loss, hair loss and sense of humour loss to name but a few) to try and find the magic one that will work for me. Fingers crossed the one I’m on now will work, time will tell.

A good friend set up this website so I could become a ginger whinger. No I’m kidding, so people can understand what I’m going through and maybe it would help me to have a bit of a rant. I have quite a dark sense of humour, I think that’s the only reason I haven’t gone completely bonkers! I clearly don’t have the most exciting of lives but I live in a small village with some entertaining characters and I’m always having blond moments (I blame the meds but I’ve always been a bit dappy!). Who knows I may even get better, and I can assure you life will be filled with amazing adventures then!

Scrap that! After zillions of Consultants all saying that they know what’s wrong with me and that they can get me better. Endless drugs and procedures I was finally Diagnosed with Chronic Lyme which was great – until I find out that nobody in the UK has a clue how to treat it. That complicates things some what 😉
