This one was a whole new ball game. As I absentmindedly picked something off a supermarket shelf my previously steady world suddenly changed into an irrational, topsy-turvy, spinning cyclone. Without any warning at all, nothing made sense any more. There was movement everywhere, and nothing was still. Not me, not my surroundings. The floor didn’t feel as though it was a flat stable force beneath my feet anymore, it was tilting up and down.
The shelves were jumping around so I didn’t want to reach out to hold them to steady myself because I thought they would make the movement worse. I could see people around me but they seemed somehow distant and close all at once. I didn’t know exactly where I was, in this bizarre rollercoaster world, or how to make it all stop. -Claire G. #MenieresHelp
I remember describing my symptoms as having turbulence inside my head when I was still, being bashed about from all angles! Not always easy to describe #vestibulardisorder #innerear
Did you know people suffering with #vestibulardisorders cannot always get their words out, concentrate, carry a conversation, cope in meetings, be around open spaces? Work can sometimes be impossible. If you are an #employer then please understand this.
