The past ten days has been challenging. That’s it in a nut shell. Challenging. Here’s why.
1. Viral middle ear infection is an actual illness where you feel like crap (basically).
2. Trying to stay balanced all day is tiring. Much like walking a tight-rope all day long and every muscle in your body (especially your back and neck) will be sore from trying to maintain balance.
3. Blurry vision.
4. Lack of the ability to concentrate on anything very long.
5. Utter exhaustion. By the time I got home from work everyday – all I wanted to do was sleep until the next day.
But, the most frustrating thing about having this illness. Hubby doesn’t see it as an illness. He just thinks I feel a little bit dizzy. And, he thinks he feels worse because his allergies are flaring up. Lesson learned: He will not be any help if anything major ever happens to me. During this entire ordeal I’ve continued to drive to work and home, which is a 45 minute drive. Cook, clean, do laundry, and go out-of-town for mother-in-law’s birthday party weekend, which included moving her furniture back into her house post broken water line / carpet replacement trauma.
Yes, moral of the story is – I’m getting better. Still a little dizzy, but better. At least I’m not seeing double in my right eye any longer.
Men. Help your wives. We’re not unbreakable.
