No project - just a quick update ..........

Thank you so much for all the good wishes yesterday. Sorry, there's no project from me today -  I just thought I would update you on my appointment at the Balance clinic  today.

We spent an hour and a quarter together and he THINKS I may have visual vertigo!  He has given me some exercises to do twice a day for the next three to four weeks. Just moving my eyes, then moving my head side to side and up and down.  I also need to turn full circles to the left and right.  I might make a ballerina yet with the last two exercises lol

He was extremely thorough going over the symptoms etc etc.  Apparently there is normally a trigger that sets the visual vertigo off, but we couldn't actually find it! lol  He does know by the tests and examinations that it is the right side of my brain that is affected.

He went through the exercises I will need to do which was NOT funny, and I left the medical centre walking like a drunk! lol 

He also suggested Yoga or Tai Chi - yes well, will think about that one! lol 

It is a matter of trying to retrain my brain to be in cinque with my movements, and to come off my medication so we shall see.
It was obvious that there isn't going to be a quick fix for the condition, just wish it hadn't taken 7 months to get to this stage! 

Hopefully I will have something crafty for you tomorrow, thank you again for your good wishes, it means a lot xxxx
