1 Peter 1:8‭-‬9

You love him even though you have never seen him. Though you do not see him now, you trust him; and you rejoice with a glorious, inexpressible joy. The reward for trusting him will be the salvation of your souls.

When my Meniere’s bothers me, I remind myself that my suffering was not even close to what Jesus did for us, willingly. While in that moment, it might feel uncomfortable, it is only temporary. By at least focusing on one positive it has helped me through aniexty moments. So find one thing & hold it tightly so you can pull it out of a box to help you. In time you may even add some more to the box.

When I get Meniere’s symptoms I remind myself to be patient & it will pass. Stressing out on how bad I might end up feels only triggers more symptoms. I found hope in Jesus & no matter how bad I might feel, He suffered so much more for us & He will continue to help us through anything.

Even when I don’t feel well from Meniere’s I still rejoice because it will pass. I will feel better shortly & will feel stronger after it.

When it get too tough then I will listen to some Christian music & just close my eyes. Even before I found out the truth about Jesus, as a kid music was my escape. There is just something a great song that can make you feel better.

Once I realized this, the fear & anxiety I felt during a severe vertigo attack was easier to handle. I remember before that, the tiniest vertigo twitch would put me in panic mode a things got worst a lot faster.

The Lord has huge shoulders. Let Him help you. He will never push you away.

My Meniere’s struggle was hard in the beginning but once I did this I found peace. God had me suffer from the severe vertigo attacks so I can help others. On my uncomfortable days I know I will be ok because God has me in his hands.

Meniere’s & The Inner Ear

For an new followers or others that want a visual of what doctors believe happens with inner ear & Meniere’s, here is video I found might be helpful. This was how Meniere’s was explained to me many years ago when I ended up at the University of Florida/ Shands hospital in Gainesville, Fl. My doctor was the Chairman of the ENT Dept of the school & an Ear Surgeon.
