First Week of the Holidays

July 15, 2013 · 5 comments

So all my plans for the first week of our holidays went to pot! On the Monday night I was reading in bed and then stood up to turn the fan off and the room started spinning and didn’t stop and then there was a weird pop feeling in my head. I thought I was just over tired and hot so I went to sleep, but when I woke up in the middle of the night for a sip of water I sat up and the room was still spinning and that’s when I got scared.

I woke Paul up, he called NHS direct after I’d looked at the App and it said to call asap, when I put in my symptoms. I was really lucky, went straight through to a triage nurse and a Doctor called back within 10 minutes. They diagnosed Vertigo and my own GP agreed the next day. I’ve never had it before and although the dizziness has now gone, I still get nauseous every now and then which isn’t brilliant but better than everything spinning.

But it totally ruined our first week, poor Miss L was wonderful and looked after me and even made me lunch one day. She’s amazing for a 10 year old, I don’t think I could have cooked roasted chicken and veggie cous, cous when I was 10! My Mum would have gotten some bread and butter :)

This weekend though we made up for it and went up to Norfolk to see my parents and then go out for a meal. The weather was gorgeous and it was a good ‘re-start’ to the holiday. I’m trying to think of something lovely to do for Miss L this week for having been so wonderful last week. I think a surprise trip to the beach is in order!

Liz, you are one amazing mama! So ill and still managed to make my blog look amazing just in time for the voting to start for the Next Newcomer blog award.

I cannot thank you enough for your amazing work and being the most helpful friend despite feeling unwell. Lucky to have Miss L looking after you- a great gal just like her mama. Glad you are on the mend.

Poor you., it is horrible. Nothing worse than feeling sick and dizzy. Well done to L for looking after you.

That sounds scary, hope the sickness passes soon so you can enjoy the rest of the holidays. We’re thinking of heading to Norfolk for a few days too x
