The further good news from today's clinic PT: I may graduate from the remedial exercises back to standing in the corner next week. Maybe. If things go well. We'll see. (There will continue to be other exercises besides that, but standing in the corner, if you recall, is the one that we stopped because it was too hard for me.)
A week from today, one of two things will have happened. Either the vertigo will have improved somewhat, in which case I will go to Minicon; or the vertigo will not have improved at all, in which case...I will still go to Minicon. Of course there are other factors like asteroids that could result in me not going to Minicon. But this is not something the vertigo is going to stop.
So please -- if you see me sitting somewhere at Minicon, and you want to talk to me, don't wait for me to get up and wander over to you. Come on over and say hi. Or please offer me an arm if you're steady enough to do so usefully. I promise that if I am feeling steady enough not to need help, I will not get tired of saying so. The vertigo is not immediately visible in a lot of circumstances. You're not going to be able to tell by looking at me sitting in the consuite or the lobby or one of the rooms with panels whether I'm feeling unsteady or not. You may not even be able to tell if I've found a nice wall to hang onto. I will be very grateful if you go on the assumption that I am not completely myself for this convention.
