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!
