I refer to April 30 as my “dark day”. 4 years ago today was my very first vertigo attack. I had just been hanging out with my boyfriend (now husband), didn’t feel well so I went back to my apartment where I was alone, and after a couple minutes I was literally slamming into the walls and then fell to the ground, the room was spinning so fast. It was the scariest day of my life, I thought I was dying and I was alone, and I’ll never forget it. It’s when this whole mess with BPPV and MAV started. I always get a bit sad when April 30 comes around.
At least this year, I can say that I’m feeling better overall. Not 100%, but better. Of course, the fertility treatment injections and other fertility meds I’m currently on are not helping matters, but I’m determined not to let my MAV get in the way of my dream of having a child. You gotta live life, right?
