I woke up dizzy this morning. Actually, I felt it coming on last night when I went to bed and hoped a good night's sleep would knock it out. It did not. I took half of a Bonine tablet, in hopes it would not make me drowsy like Dramamine does, but it seems both meds have the very same effect on me.
I forced myself to go to work because there is no rest for the dizzy church secretary on Fridays when the bulletin must be made. I could function well enough for that, but forget about multi-tasking, conversing with real people, or doing anything else that requires math or thinking of any sort. I have zero concentration ability when my head is like this. Well, it turned out to be a multi-tasking morning, and I almost had a meltdown before 9:00. But soon thereafter all the peripheral tasks were finished, and I moved on to the bulletin and a smoother morning.
I came home at noon, ate lunch, and then went to bed. I slept until 3:00, which is when my husband got home from work and opened the bedroom door. It's very possible he woke me from a near coma because I didn't know what time it was, what day it was, or just what was going on. He says the dog was barking like mad when he came in the house, but I didn't hear a thing. When I got up my head felt worse, and I was grouchy. I am UGLY when I'm groggy and on that medication. Just take my word for it. No one should see that.
Once I really awaken I can shake off the mood, so I've been pretty okay all evening. Rich graciously took care of dinner by running out for fast food. I must say if being dizzy all day so that I cannot get to the grocery store means I must eat a Burrito Supreme from Taco Bell, well then I am willing to suffer.
It's almost time for bed now, and my head still doesn't feel great. I sure hope this thing is knocked out by morning, or I'm gonna lose Saturday, too. And that would really bum me out.
