getting by

If I could think of a cheese that would go well with this whine, we wouldn't have such a problem.

In the two and a half years I've been posting about regular vertigo episodes*, I have had a pattern of e-mails and lj posts directed my way. One of you will get a cold and have your balance knocked off-kilter, and you will note that you thought of me, and that it really sucked.

It turns out that I, too, can get a cold and have my balance knocked off-kilter. From its current suboptimal state.


Also it turns out that postnasal drip combines poorly with vertigo-induced nausea.

Now that I think of it, I can't come up with anything postnasal drip combines well with. But worse than that low standard, really.

Okay. Non-whiny posts after I face the lunch dilemma. I promise.

*Yes. Two and a half. June 2006, to be exact. I tend to think of it as "about a year," because Thanksgiving 2007 is when things got really debilitating consistently. But 1) I do have to increment that time: it's been over a year since Thanksgiving 2007 and 2) it's really important for me not to behave as though the only states are "barely functional" and "fine."
