Today's weather matches my mood. I had my second physical therapy session today for my vertigo. It was tough and afterwards I was pretty nauseous. I had to sit for a bit and drink some ginger ale. Last week I thought she was crazy when she said dizzy patients compensate for their vertigo by becoming more rigid and stiff (example: not turning your head side to side loosely - like a normal person) in their day to day movements and activities...to prevent the vertigo. I didn't feel like I was doing that- until today. I could feel myself becoming rigid...especially when I was walking on a foam pad barefoot- with my eyes closed...and turning. Not a good feeling and I could totally see now what she was saying. This session was hard and I know I'm moving in the right direction but it's frustrating not being able to "function" like I used to.
Anyhow...on a lighter note- in a couple of weeks I'm headed to Chicago for a girls weekend with my oldest friend of 24 years. I've never been so I'm really looking forward to it. It's my birthday - I'm turning the big 36...and I'm feeling every one of those years right now! :)
And I had to share this because this masterpiece combines two of my favorite things...cake and cupcakes...Happy Friday!
