Inner Ear with Meniere’s

Here is a diagram I found on what a normal ear looks & one that is affected by Meniere’s. Many people, including myself take a perscription water pill to help control the extra fuild that might be building. Between low salt, caffiene diet, the water pill & the tube in my ear drum, the severe attacks stay away. But just with any illness each person may have other triggers. There are some that fall which are call Drop Attacks.

No matter what, don’t stop fighting. I have Meniere’s but it doesn’t have me.

Why Do I Have Vertigo?

When it comes to Vertigo, it could be a number of issues. Don’t be afraid to talk to your doctors about all the symptoms you are dealing with. If they are not open to a conversation, then find a doctor that is. I tried 3 different ENT doctors before I found my current doctor. He is wonderful!

2 Corinthians 5:14‭-‬15

Either way, Christ’s love controls us. Since we believe that Christ died for all, we also believe that we have all died to our old life. He died for everyone so that those who receive his new life will no longer live for themselves. Instead, they will live for Christ, who died and was raised for them.
2 Corinthians 5:14‭-‬15 NLT

Faith & Meniere’s Disease

Through my Meniere’s journey, which started in 1998, I am at peace because I have the best coach in the world, Jesus. When I don’t feel well & start to think ” Oh no a full Meniere’s attack might go back.” Now my Meniere’s has been controlled for several years but once you’ve experience 14hr severe vertigo attacks every other day, you mind instantly freaks out thinking the worst. The way I fight back is with this verse. May it give you comfort as well.

What is Meniere’s Disease – Diagram

Found this diagram on Pinterest. This might give you a better visual understanding.  You can also show your friends & family so they can see what you deal with everyday.  I’ve also attached a list of other types of vertigo. It’s so hard for people to understand what we go through because you can’t see Meniere’s like you would with cancer or other illnesses.  Try not to get mad at them but educate them.



Here Come The Cold!

It has been fun here in Florida the last several days as a cold front passes over.  Nasty weather. Headaches that won’t go away & feeling off balance. On top of it, my allergies are not helping. At work we have a leak in the roof that is close my desk. I can’t even wear my contacts or my eyes start burning. It is also messing with some of MD symptoms . Roofer just came by to put us on the schedule. We had wind gust today up to 38 mph here & areas are without power. At least the rain finally stopped & the sun is out. But now there is a freeze warning issued for my county of Brevard. I have to run home & cover my palm trees. Still love the cold though because I am originally from Ohio.

This too shall pass!
