Doing the Lurch

Migraine vertigo says no to amusement park rides and fun..png


This whole vertigo thing is messed up. It is rather hard to sleep when you get into bed, you snuggle into the sheets, you get comfortable and then you Fall. I would assume the bed would be stationary and not thrown onto some random amusement ride. But my brain, on the other hand, is all for fun and games. It is just a lurching fall. Sort of fall and jerk. Then stable. And repeat. It happens when I am falling to sleep and it happens in the morning.

It happens after plane rides, for days after.

It happens when I’m driving a car on the highway.

On a boat.

On a train.

This is getting very Dr. Seuss isn’t it. On a boat with a goat. I don’t want green eggs and ham Sam I am.

I’m wondering if I could set up a soundtrack at night to match that Lurch to a Beat so that it wouldn’t be so damned annoying… maybe then it would be sort of like in tune with the music and I could fall asleep? Or not.
