While this is a bummer of a deal no matter where you are, to complicate things TVPEOPDW05 hit me whilst visiting the family of a guy I was dating. I managed to vomit in every toilet in their home my first full day there. Classy. (I’m sure his parents were relieved when we later broke up.) In fact, I didn’t stop throwing up until a full day later when a doctor recommended I try Benadryl. Apparently an ear infection had caused the vertigo, so Benadryl did the trick—the vomiting stopped, but the vertigo didn’t for a good week after.
Ever since TVPEOPDW05, I get a bit of vertigo every few months. Sometimes it hits after I’ve had a cold and my ears are messed up, other times it comes out of nowhere just for kicks.
Last night as I got out of the car after work, the world suddenly flipped and I felt super dizzy. It was very Lucille 2-ish. It's still going strong today. And while I have yet to lose my lunch, I’m being cautious and not turning my head fast or making any sudden movements. (You should see my drive a car—it’s really safe.) And just to spice things up, we're heading to a ward campout tonight. I've always wanted to puke outdoors, and this just may be my big chance.
So in the words of U2:
Hello, Hello (¡Hola!)
I'm at a place called Vertigo (¿Dónde está?)
It's everything I wish I didn't know
Except you give me something I can feel,
Lucille 2 and I agree, Bono.
