So Long and Thanks for all the Fish....

Mon, 22 Jan 2007 09:23:48 -0500

O.k., I know that's not original.....but how do I wrap things up and say goodbye to this blog? As you can see I haven't been writing as often lately and this is partly because I have lost my anonymity. This...

2007 Already??

Mon, 01 Jan 2007 10:20:34 -0500

While others are writing a review of the past year I feel I should recap this past month since I've been a bit absent from the blogging scene. After much anticipation I had my appointment with the neurosurgeon regarding the...

Which Way Is Up?

Sat, 02 Dec 2006 07:47:11 -0500

I've just found the perfect tree for my neurologists office. What could be more appropriate for someone who treats vertigo than an upside down Christmas tree?

Blue Badge of Christmas

You are spinning one way while I am spinning another. Want to know more?

Sun, 26 Nov 2006 17:18:37 -0500

I've been thinking a lot about the invisible aspects of my disability today and realized that although my vertigo may make everything spin around me, I am the only one who can see the spinning. So I've decided that I...

Guardian Part II: Where the Hell is my Confidentiality??

Sat, 25 Nov 2006 11:15:25 -0500

Well, it happened again. Now it's the nurse who is supposed to come and do my in-home assessment. Apparently they had cancelations and she called to see if she could come today, a week early. This wouldn't have been a...

I don't need a Guardian!!

Thu, 23 Nov 2006 07:44:57 -0500

This may seem like a random rant but in the past week I've been asked numerous times who my guardian was. I am 32 years old. What. The. Hell. Every time I am asked who to put as an emergency...

Back from the Hospital

Sun, 19 Nov 2006 21:18:44 -0500

Well I had a lovely ride in an ambulance to the ER this afternoon and have just arrived home. Did you ever notice just how many sticky electrode monitoring pads they glue to your body?? Every time I think that...

Doctor needs a nap

Wed, 08 Nov 2006 20:47:30 -0500

The news article, Sleep Deprivation Creating 'Nation of Walking Zombies' illustrates the need for sleep particularly for our nation's medical staff. The graveyard shift just got a whole lot scarier.

Vertigo a go go

Mon, 06 Nov 2006 13:54:45 -0500

Never suffered an attack of vertigo? Then take a trip to the otolaryngologist I was referred to a few weeks back. I mean this guy treats vertigo patients and his office building is set up like a damned Escher painting....

Call For Help

Wed, 01 Nov 2006 15:51:57 -0500

Hello all. I've just been told that the MRI scan of my brain yesterday showed a 2.4 cm cyst. It is a benign arachnoid cyst but it's putting pressure on my right facial nerve, vestibular cochlear nerve, glossopharyngeal nerve, the...

Pumpkin Carving

This was last year's Mump-O-lantern. Any suggestions for this year's pumpkin carving attempt?

Mystery Peeps

Fri, 20 Oct 2006 00:17:09 -0400

It is hard to believe that October is nearly over and I haven't even posted this months page from the GimpyMumpy CWD Wall Calendar.

Is chewable doable?

Sun, 08 Oct 2006 14:40:54 -0400

I've just begun a trial of Antivert which is an anti-vertigo drug that is taken as symptoms begin. Sounds good in theory right? The problem is that the "symptoms" are dizziness that feels like the room is spinning in one...

Meniere's Attacks!

Thu, 05 Oct 2006 18:29:09 -0400

After a lengthy appointment today with my doctor (whose nurse seemed to enjoy poking holes in me) I was told that I may have Meniere's Disease. I have had a huge resurgence of dizzy spells where I lose my balance,...

Gimpy Puppy!

Sat, 30 Sep 2006 10:00:05 -0400

Poor Miss Maya is walking a bit like Mumpy this week. In the midst of puppy mischief little Maya injured her front leg. Her veterinarian kindly put a beautiful purple flower on her cast since they didn't have any casts...

Hooray for Walmart

Sat, 23 Sep 2006 19:47:51 -0400

I bet that's something you never thought you'd be reading here at but I must give credit where credit is due. Walmart is planning to sell a variety of medications for 4 dollars. This is staggering and it is...

I eats me spinach?

Sat, 23 Sep 2006 19:39:28 -0400

"I'm strong to the finish 'cause I eats me spinach...." O.k., how many others heard about the E. coli outbreak just after eating raw spinach? In fact Miss Mumpy had just served up dinner on a bed of baby spinach...

Has it really been that long?

Sat, 23 Sep 2006 19:25:24 -0400

Wow, I knew that I'd been away from my computer for an unusually long time but I can't believe it's been so long since I've posted! Lots to catch up on. On the Big News front Miss G Mump has...

A Very Merry UnMumpDay To Me, Yes Me!

Mon, 21 Aug 2006 13:52:25 -0400

Well tomorrow is MY BIRTHDAY but the celebrations begin this evening with a dinner OUT OF THE HOUSE! That means eating a meal AT A TABLE and wearing something OTHER THAN PAJAMAS. Wait, wait it gets even MORE exciting. I...

Falling To Pieces

Mon, 21 Aug 2006 13:48:17 -0400

Have been incredibly busy lately which has led to an increase in pain issues and a lack of blogging.

Where Does It Come From?

Tue, 08 Aug 2006 16:50:47 -0400

Ever wonder where that transplant skin comes from? Here's an eye opening article about a woman who lost over 140 pounds and donated 50 pounds of her excess skin. According to the article this is a growing trend with over...

Is it me?

Mon, 07 Aug 2006 13:56:34 -0400

I've just received a call from doctor #27 who just last month was ready to take on the world in order to help me get the proper care I "so desperately need" from a multitude of specialists. By last week...
