my world keeps on spinning

vertigo |ˈvərtəgō|
a sensation of whirling and loss of balance, associated particularly with looking down from a great height, or caused by disease affecting the inner ear or the vestibular nerve; giddiness.

this is what the dictionary says. i am not sure i get the giddiness, there is nothing giddy about this.
we all know that i am not a tall gal so this doesn't happen because i am looking down from heights.
my wonderful dr. says it's caused by the inner ear.
i hate this feeling. hopefully the medicine will start to kick in. i have had this feeling for 2 1/2 weeks now. i just hope it goes away before we get to Toronto.
sometimes i feel stupid or silly when it's really bad. people give me strange looks when i have to hold on the the wall or just stop moving. on the outside they see nothing wrong. let me tell you if you could feel what i feel you would know there is definitely something wrong.

if you care to please pray that this gets better.

I feel for you; I think I told you sometime on the trip that my mom had vertigo. It was not a fun time for her, but she was fine after a doctor did some fancy rattling of the rocks in her ears (that's what she called them). I hope you start feeling better soon, or if this comment came to late I'm glad you feel better!
