I got a new set of weights today. I felt bad for the girl filling in for my regular UPS driver. Hope she didn’t hurt herself. Anyway, I was feeling a lot better today. Only slight vertigo but thankfully no nausea so I’ve been able to eat proper meals.
Felt well enough to drive myself to a doc appointment today. Driving, although I felt a little uncomfortable, I did fine. Went and picked up a prescription, in a huge, brightly lit grocery store, no anxiety or vertigo there either. Came home and managed to cook dinner and clean up the entire kitchen.
What I noticed most was though, when I was putting together the rack for my weights, my dizziness and visual disturbance seemed to have subsided completely. Focusing on a task that’s not screen-related made me feel better. I know it took my mind off of my symptoms because I was busy, but even after I was finished, the effect lasted maybe 2-3 hours before I felt them a bit again. Although my back got sore from crouching over for so long thanks to not being able to find my socket wrench and had to use a regular one, I’ll take that over a swaying room any day.
I just thought I’d share a bit of a story of relief, even if it is temporary. It made me happy.
