It’s been a little while. Okay, a long while. Life has taken some detours. Meniere’s Disease tends to do that.
This blog was supposed to be about food and low sodium, but it’s taken me to other blogs and stories about people who have this pain in the ass disease.
So, our most recent adventures included gentamicin injections, his balance being off (for good, possibly?), and a second injection later this week. Have any of you had this done? We went a whole two weeks with only mild vertigo and then one severe attack that was the deciding factor for the second injection. My husband likes to say that normal is over, but we’ll take normal-ish and there have been some normal-ish days.
We have been side-lined so often and forced to cancel plans because of a vertigo attack, or decline invitations that involve something loud. Strange way to navigate your social life, but you gotta do what you gotta do.
Yesterday, by some miracle, we were able to sneak away to our favorite pizza spot and celebrate 23 years of marriage at the only restaurant I know won’t make him sick for days. They know his issue and go above and beyond to make eating there comfortable. We always get a quiet spot that won’t make him insane with hyper-acusis torture. So there’s a little living to be done, and you just have to find a way to do it.
