Spinning, literally

This has been a difficult health year for me.  Normally, I don’t ever get sick, but this year, I had a serious round of flu and yesterday, I landed in the ER with a terrible bout of vertigo, something I’ve had before, though it’s been quite a while.  This round was quite severe and not fun at all.  I felt better today and by the end of the day, was feeling almost normal.  I’m doing the Epley maneuver at night before I go to bed and I’m avoiding sleeping on the side that’s most problematic, which, let me tell you, is really hard.  All signs point to this resolving itself soon.

I can almost see the light at the end of the school-year tunnel, though the tunnel still seems quite long.  I’ve been thinking about this blog quite a lot.  I have not found a good schedule for regular blogging yet.  The morning isn’t quite enough time to write and often by the end of the day, I’m too tired to think.  I supposed I could start a post in the evening and finish in the morning if need be.  Some might say I should abandon the whole thing and shift my energy to Twitter or some other platform.  But I like writing and reflecting, and I think it’s good practice.  It makes me think through things more carefully rather than condensing everything down to 240 characters.  A goal of mine next year is to fit blogging into my regular schedule again.  I should have a more flexible schedule, which should make it possible to set aside 1/2 hour or so to write.  We’ll see.

  1. It’s been a bad healthy year on our campus. Two rounds of the flu, some stomach viruses. We are all very ready for the semester to end! Hope you are feeling better soon.

  2. I’m sorry you had/have had vertigo, it sounds scary and uncomfortable! 🙁

    As for blogging, I think the most important thing is to keep doing it even if sporadically. I understand that you want to make a habit of writing, but I don’t think you need to get upset if you don’t post on the blog for a few days… At least that’s my philosophy — I won’t quit blogging, but I won’t commit to doing it regularly because I don’t want it to be a chore, only a creative outlet and, for me, very important “cheap therapy!” 😉

    I truly enjoy still having you around, especially because you’re one of a select number of bloggers that I’ve actually met in person!
