Monday Musings


What a weekend. 

In my quest to find healing for this dizziness I tried Reiki.  It is a type of energy healing that is suppose to promote healing.  It is administered by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's "life force energy" is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.

You see the ear doctor I had seen had no answers or real solutions regarding this dizziness other then she believes a nerve has been damaged in my ear,  so she felt it was worth exploring eastern types of healing medicines as well.  So she recommended Reiki, Acupuncture, Massage, Cranial Sacral,etc..   My sister happened to come across this woman's name quite accidentally, so we looked at it as sign.  It was enlightening.

Did I mention I got to spend time with my niece afterwards?  That is healing in itself.  And of course at the tender age of 3 she wanted the details about the Reiki appointment.  She amazes me with her intelligence and wisdom at such a young age.

Also tuned into my Phillies as they made it to the playoffs, but the dizzy schnizzy reared it's head so I tried to close my eyes and just listen to the game last night and Saturday.  They won one and lost one.  These next games could be tough to watch. ha

And today I found out the ear specialist I was scheduled to see in December, well he took a look at my files the other ear specialist sent him and he agreed to see me next week!   This guy is impossible to get an appointment with as he runs supposedly one of the best dizziness/balance centers in the country. 

Now the down side is I have to go in Monday for 2 hrs of testing but cannot actually meet with him until the next day.  So it means two trips by train, and have to find someone who will take time off for work to go with me because they require someone to be there with me for testing. (I'm scared as I've been told the testing is not pleasant, the room will be spinning, and they will not let me leave until I feel okay.)  Can you say nervous?! 

I'm just hoping and praying to get some answers because life has been real hard lately and I just want to be able to do all the stuff I did before this dizziness.  Gosh even just being able to read a book or magazine again would be nice! 

I've reached the point where I'm pretty much open to trying anything eastern or western medicine has to offer.   Only downside is it all costs a lot of money, and when you can't work because your world is spinning well it can get tricky.  It would be great if insurances would cover those types of medicines, things like therapeutic massage and acupunture have shown to have positive benefits for many and often times work better than popping pills. 

Well that's my story for today, or well all the computer time I can handle for now.  Blessings!
