In A Place Called Vertigo

So unfortunately my last few days with Lina were met with an extremely unexpected and thoroughly uncomfortable illness of a sort that took over the entirety of that next week.  I woke up one morning and found myself struggling to stand up straight and walk, the simplest of tasks feeling off.  I let Lina know that I was feeling extremely dizzy just as a heads up as we were set to go try on some clothes that were the product of a friend cleaning out her closet.

I never made it any further in the "getting ready" process, instead finding myself passed out on the living room couch feeling like I was stuck in my own personal hell.  The world around me was spinning, every movement feeling delayed and out-of-place, sending me into a whir of nausea that had me stumbling to the bathroom three times before we were due to be picked up.  The best way I could explain this horrible state is if I compared it to the physical feeling you get when you've had far, far too much to drink, your balance suddenly non-existent as you try to go about making normal movements and gestures that just don't end up being carried out quite right.

We gave up on the idea of my coming along, ringing up the doctor to get an emergency appointment made while Lina quickly zoomed off to Lise's (who at this point had just rung the doorbell) and back again.

My grandmother and Mama thought that with my intense allergies, previously combined with a cold that left my head feeling like an entire ton, blowing out my hearing and abilities to breathe and speak like an average human being, had resulted in some part of my ear's balance nerve being impacted.

An excruciating four hours later Lina and Mama accompanied me to the doctor where I had to perform some balance tests made to further provoke the dizziness (so much fun :/), also chalking it up to the same conclusion as we had and referring me to an ear, nose throat specialist (ENT).  This was not the week to get sick, especially to the point where a specialist's opinion was required as every single ENT in Svendborg and Odense had decided to go on holiday.  With the new requirement of a referral in order to be looked at at the Emergency Room, I was sincerely shit out of luck until Monday.

Thankfully, after 48 hrs. of living in the most uncomfortable state I've ever experienced, daily tasks such as going to the bathroom, eating and having a shower suddenly becoming adventures that required the loving and dutiful aid of my precious baby sister (who, might I add, at this point was even less excited for that trans-Atlantic flight approaching in a few days time), it got better.  I was by no means perfect and still required supervision as I was still a fall-risk but the dizziness and nausea was subsiding.

Fantastic!  Except for the fact that by the time I got to see an ENT and my hearing, eyesight, movements and balance were tested alongside checks of my ear, nose and throat of course, he didn't believe that what I had experienced had anything to do with my ears or balance at all.  Super.  I wouldn't recommend going to a doctor for something when all of your symptoms have essentially vanished...not that I had much of a choice.

Even given all of my symptoms and what I'd presented to him regarding my overall health, he, having crossed off ears and balance as having any role in this, could not tell me why I'd experienced what I had.  Without the symptoms present, of course it could make a difference in his diagnosis but given how quickly I'd improved and with all of my tests indicating nothing but good health, he just couldn't see it adding up.

I was so looking forward to figuring out what had happened to me so that I could take precautions to ensure that it never, NEVER happened again but alas, no such luck.  He asked me a bit about what I do and with the response of Law School and full-time work usually, alongside some more information about my health and what had happened this past year, the doctor believed that this episode was brought on my stress.

Well, excuse me but, F*CK ME THEN.  I'm not dismissing or rejecting this at all but he's unfortunately not the first medical professional to present me with this possibility as an explanation for my suddenly unstable immune system.  I got sick once, maybe twice a year when I lived in Arizona and although I eat well, exercise and at least make a solid effort to combat my insomnia, I have been, since moving to Europe constantly plagued with some sort of illness.

Life has a funny way of throwing things at you, usually all in one go and never in a way that you could have prepared for or foreseen and all there's left to do is take it as best you can and move forward.  Outside of that, I somehow doubt my stress levels with decrease given the profession I've selected so now I'm the one at a loss :/ Will have to do some more yoga I guess...

After goodbyes were said and I was feeling a little better, an entire week had somehow passed. I had a double sleepover out at Mama's, assisting in a few decisions with the bathroom and guest room renovations in the house and otherwise jamming out to some good music, drinking loads of coffee, watching video after video of performances by some of my favourite artists that I wanted to update her on/show her and, of course, playing cards.  Benji came out to hygge with us twice as well, Bølle sinking into a total depression following our departure, having secured a new best (cuddle) buddy in the process.

Jan was back in town after having flown back along with Ella, Alyssa, Camilla+crew so we all tackled the start to the new week over some scrumptious sushi from our favourite place and a few glasses of champagne.  I finally got to see their new summer house, just across the way from us and ugh, so cute!! I suppose it'd really be quite confusing, my being a full-blooded Dane, if I didn't like the Scandinavian style of decor so it makes perfect sense that I loved the new addition to the family!!

Unfortunately the lunch Lina and I had arranged with Po and our sleepover at Louise and Casper's never panned out but with Jordie in town to look after the store while his parents went away on holiday, I managed to be at least a little bit social!

  1. It is vital in these days to have a social media presence. Many businesses overlook this necessity for future growth. It may be more important than putting in more funding. Pricing properly is key, of course. But investing more is not always the best option. Sometimes it’s better to cut unnecessary costs.
