I was writing in my journal and decided I needed to add a picture of how I was feeling:
Today I started sketching more as I was writing.
Illustrated journals can be so interesting…and inspirational. Here’s the beginning of mine:
The past two days I haven’t been able to hear much at all. The tinnitus has been better, and the headaches have been less intense…but hearing…well…not so much.
Today, I had a mini-attack. I felt it coming. The world was starting to move, my stomach was doing flip-flops, I had that hot feeling….I just knew things were going to start violently spinning any moment. Stuart kept a cook head, as usual, I was a little panicked, but worked hard to stay calm. After taking Valium, and Phenergan…plus a phenergan suppository…things calmed down. I’m still off balance, and not trusting myself to walk without my walker. But I didn’t throw up!!
I hope you enjoyed my illustrations. It felt good to accomplish something, even though I couldn’t get off the couch!
