Love Hope And Strength

I've not been right in the head for some time. Friends, and those who have been with my blog for a while, will know I've been diagnosed with labyrinthitus by my GP. Trouble is, symptoms normally last 3-6 weeks and I've been suffering with dizziness, nausea, anxiety, (all extremely severe at times), for over four months now.

I've become quiet and less outgoing, almost to the point where I feel I'm beginning to lose basic social skills. My wife tells me it's like living with a completely different person and that my sense of humor died the same day the dizziness took over.

Because it's gone on so long, my GP wants a second opinion, so I'm going for an MRI scan on my head, tomorrow (Friday). Part of me is hoping they find something. Then I'll know what I'm dealing with. On the other hand, I also need to be careful for what I wish for.

I'm not sure if I get the results the same day. Probably not, But it will be a relief to know someone is finally taking a closer look at me and that I could soon be on the road to recovery. Let's hope so anyway.


  1. I hope it all goes well tomorrow. It's obviously not going away by itself and at least now something proactive is being done about it.

  2. Hope everything goes well today, Mark. It must be awful having to live with such a thing, but at least you should get some answers after the MRI.
