Thursday Thoughts

So today was the follow up with the neurologist, to my surprise the mri actually looked fine. (with how I feel thought for sure something really had to be amiss in my brain)  So part of me feels relieved yet part feels apprehensive as the chronic dizziness still remains.

As to why I'm feeling such constant dizziness, vertigo, imbalance, and head pressure?   He says he is leaning toward a diagnosis of  vestibular neuronitis.   Turns out the inner ear can even affect our vision as well. The worst part of it is the fact that mine appears to be more on the chronic side which could be a tad more difficult to treat.

He would like me to undergo a special type of physical therapy designed for such a condition.  Now this is where I feel nervous because it helps a certain percentage but like anything in life it doesn't come with any guarantees or cures.  Sometimes that is the hardest part of life....the unknown.

So I suppose we'll see what happens....

And I have mentioned this before but the thoughts running through my mind the past few weeks,months,etc., is one of disbelief pertaining to how much we take for granted everyday.   Seriously everyday we wake up healthy and feeling good is such a blessing in itself.   But how often do most of us even give it a thought? 

Given the state of the country at the moment even just waking up and having a job is a blessing.  There are just so many things we overlook until they are taken away.  Health is a huge one.

So today my thoughts are this....I want to try and remind myself to have and show more gratitude.  To try and remember to count the blessings that do exist.  To remember to feel and show more appreciation.   And to try to always remember to be understanding of others because none of us truly know what others might be thinking, feeling, or going through on the inside. 

If you happen to be reading this today, thanks for checking out my little blog and for sharing a piece of my world.  Blessings.....
