ears

Wednesday night I had attempted to drive back to Arlington to meet up with Jonna and pick up mail from my old apartment. However, I didn't make it very far. I felt incredibly dizzy and my vision was blurry. I managed to slowly drive home and park and went straight to bed. All of Thursday I didn't feel any better so I went to the health center on campus. Apparently I had an inner ear infection, joyous. The only good thing about that was the doctor told me not to go to class that night and rest. So I went to bed around 6pm and it was glorious.

The ear infection made life complicated for about 5 days. I couldn't drive anywhere and it was really difficult to focus and concentrate without feeling sick from the motion and dizziness. While medication is helpful for my ears, it also made my Crohn's flare, which is typical. Increase of white blood cells causes increase of stomach pain and other lousy symptoms. I'm grateful that Billy was willing to pick me up, drive me around, and take care of me while I was sick. Hopefully it should pass quickly and then I'll be able to deal with my continued hectic schedule - at least be able to drive again!
