Happy Friday!!!!!

Happy Friday. I hope everyone is feeling OK. With having a disease & trying to cope with all the craziness going on world here is one of my favorite songs. No matter how hard thing get, God will always be there to hold our hand.

Claude Debussy : Clair de Lune


What a beautiful song to start the day with. When ever stress gets to me, which is really bad for Meniere’s patients, I listen to music. Ever since I was a little girl it has been a very calming thing for me. God gave some people an amazing gift of song. So no matter what style you like, take time to sit back an just enjoy it.

Have a wonderful day everyone!

Stress & Meniere’s

Sorry I haven’t updated the blog in a while. Been dealing with car problems. But as of yesterday I am now a proud owner of a 2013 Toyota Camry SE. At the moment though I am driving a loaner car till my car comes in. The dealer did not have a Silver model with the specs that I wanted. They said it would be delivered to the dealership next Monday  and then will be tinted.  

Now you’re probably wondering what in the world does this have to do with Meniere’s Disease? Well, when you constantly are worrying if the engine or oil light is going to come on it will stress you out. My 2006 Mazda 6 got so bad that I was putting 4qts of oil every 1500 miles.  Every time I would turn the car key I would stress out wondering if the car would be ok.  For a Meniere’s patient stress is a bad thing. When I was really sick a few months back I remember my ENT doctor asking me if I had been really stressed out lately. They only thing that came to mind was being dizzy was causing the stress. I also started to notice all the sudden I am getting more grey hair in the last  6 months.  Now I am only 36 so a few would be common but it’s more than that on the underside of my head. I have been dealing with this oil issue for almost a year and I believe that the Mazda dealer did not do the proper repairs at the time they worked on the car. I know some car stuff because  I was a little tom girl that would rather help dad with the truck than learn how to sew. The Mazda was making me so mad that now I think back to a few times with the warning light would come on and I would get so upset that I would start to feeling dizzy.  Now that is just too dangerous when your driving alone.  So I sold the car to Carmax so it was not a total loss.  But boy, driving home from the Toyota deal was so relaxing. It’s like a weight was lifted off my shoulders.  Now if I can only figure out why the ringing in my left ear sounds different. It’s not just the constant ring but when I move a certain way the sound also goes up and down. Maybe that has something to do with the crystals in my inner ear. I did the DizzyFix exercises for week and I thought everything was better. When I go home today I will start doing them again to see if it helps. I tried using my Meniett device last night but that did not change anything.  So I just pray about it and let God guide me in the right direction.  Try a few things till I find the right cause. 

Hope everyone has a wonderful and blessed day. I promise to post pictures of the new car as soon as I get it.
