being dizzy sucks...

... as does getting anybody to help you with it.

Really, Hubby and I went to the ER on Thursday night. They gave me meds that didn't work, did some blood work and sent me home 7 hours later. They didn't look in my ears -- even though I told them I'd had a cold.

Friday we tried to make the meds work -- but, the only way I could not be really ill was to lay very still... most of the time with my eyes closed. I listened to the radio and napped all day -- which was kind of ok, since we got home from the ER about 4 AM.

Saturday, finally, we got to talk to a nurse -- who persuaded a doctor to try something different. Plus, I took some vitamins and tried other stuff --- and, while I'm not 100%, as of Sunday sit up a bit, read a book lying in bed and be more comfortable...

Learn this lesson -- don't get sick outside of regular business hours.... really... don't do it.

My mom will be here late tonight for the hand-off, as Hubby has to head back to Red State for another year....

and, school starts tomorrow. My syllabi are written -- but not copied. My first classes are Tuesday.... by which time I'll probably be ok to do the minimal first-day of class stuff.... provided I can get the syllabi copied...

for now, I'm going back to bed.

I'm sorry to hear this. I hope your "during business hours" doctors can figure out what's up and get you something that works tomorrow.
