I seemed to lose a lot of last week. The whole tinnitus/migraine issue just isolates me. I don’t feel like going out, last week I only went to a gig in Brighton that we’d booked ages ago and didn’t want to miss and one AA business meeting. However not only that I sit at home and go inward as the noise, pain and visual disturbances just make me feel really like I don’t want to interact as it’s difficult.
It has been slowly getting better as I’ve stuck to taking the medication the doctor prescribed, mostly I know that that reduces the feeling of pressure in my ear and that helps with the pain. It is odd that the noises that really are painful are varied from a washing machine on fast spin (obviously) to someone stirring a cup the other side of the office (Seriously!). Today is best day in at least 7/8 days.
After a very inactive Sunday where frankly I sat in front of the tv most of the day I feel I need a bit of a boot up the arse to get me motivated to get more active, stop isolating and get going. Knowing me though this’ll take some time as I’m not great at turning a corner like this. However I’ve been invited to speak at a meeting tonight that I rarely go to so that’s good and I have a therapy session tomorrow where I think I have a topic for conversation already!
