Normal service will be resumed…

…possibly… maybe… sometime in the future.

The vertigo is better.  Not gone not cured but better.  I’m not having roaring violent attacks every few hours.  I’m sort of trying to return to work but finding that a challenge at times.  I’m on a slow phased return working short hours.

The tinnitus is utterly maddening most of the time now.   I can only play electric guitar not plugged in even acoustic is difficult to bear.

In other news… Mother-in-law is settling into a care home.  After a whole slew of stuff it was apparent to nearly everyone that returning to her typical suburban three bedroom house was a non-starter.  She couldn’t see it at first but in the end came round.  We’ve shifted a load of photos and mementos and a couple of bits of favourite furniture into her new home.  She seems to be like it now – playing cards and bingo getting her hair done regular etc. and staff on hand 24×7 to help her and make sure she is ok.

Now we’ve got to find time to sort out all the finances and sell her house etc.  Oh well – one problem solved and another load fall into your lap as a result don’t they.

  1. Glad to hear your mending but will keep praying you truly recover. Sorry for all the bumps in the road. When I was younger I never understood why people kept saying life is hard. Now at 66 years young I finally get it. Happy Holidays to you and family.

  2. Yes, life is hard. I truly understand hearing problems and music.
    I just wish you some healing hugs.

    I worked with a guy who had tinnitus. It really bothered him a lot. He would lose his temper sometimes and yell at us. Wishing you all the best with that condition.

    Sounds tough. Thinking of you. x

    glad that you can at least see a path forward… it’s always darkest when there’s no light on the horizon. even though there is additional work with your mother-in-law, i’m thinking there has to be great relief for all involved that she is at least safe, and has 24 hour attendants! i wish my mother had considered it, as she’d have probably loved the social side of things… she wouldn’t even visit a place.

    My boyfriend struggles the same with the spins & the ringing. Living in fear of the next one is rather indescribable. It is disheartening to say the least. He finds (sometimes) relief with a chiropractor who doesn’t do the “cracking” thing. It’s scary to watch this take down a strong man, especially on the stairs.

  7. It’s nice to hear from you. Thanks for the update. Are you able to drive? Or sleep? You make me realize that I complain too much.

      I didn’t drive for about 6 weeks. Now I’m free of the violent attacks I am occasionally driving but normally only short trips. To be honest I’m relying on public transport much much more.
      Sleeping is a problem some nights

    It took me about 6 weeks after vertigo to be able to drive again and be reasonably normal. But at least I didn’t have tinnitus as well. Horrendous. Keep on improving i pray.

    Thank you for the update. it’s always good to hear from you. I’m sorry you’re still struggling, but I’m glad it’s getting a bit better. I’ll hold you and your family in my thoughts and prayers and hope your mother-in-law is continuing to enjoy her new environment.

    Hoping for your full recovery… Just came across your blog so you don’t know who I am, but I hope you get better soon!

  11. Happy New Year, sir. Hope you and your family are well. Please check in when you’re of a mind to do so.
