In a bit of a spin

Hi all,
This is going to be just a quick post. 

 I'll will get some of AmyJos agreed info up soon  like I promised but, since getting back from Fernwoods and contracting Chris's cold mine has now developed into Labrinthitis.   Its an inner ear infection that whenever you transition from laying down to sitting to standing and back again that motion sets the room off in a spin causing nausea and drowsiness.  It was quite frightening when it first happened to me 3 days ago and since then its been like trying to walk on a ships deck pitching in storm.  Not very elegant I have to admit, like being drunk without the alcohol.  Only way to cope is to do little at a time and then lay down for a couple of hours.  Doctor assures me with medication it will cease soon.  I sure hope he is right, I would not wish this on my worst enemy!

I had this a few years ago, so you have my sympathy.

Thanks Adam
The tablets are kicking in and the floor seems alot more stable now though the spinning sensation when getting up or down is still there to remind me.
