Trip To TN

So I’m leaving Tuesday afternoon for TN to see my dad! Words can’t express how excited I am to have 10 days off work to spend time in such a beautiful state!

I’m bringing my tablet and detachable keyboard because I am going to try to get on here and update y’all! I’m going to try to post some pictures of the different places we go. I think we’re going to visit some small towns. I love visiting small towns.  It feels so homey and cute.

I’m also excited because I will (hopefully) be able to see a friend of mine from college that I haven’t seen in almost 10 years! She lives in Mississippi but will be in Nashville for a couple of days. So yay for that!!!!

Anyway, just wanted to hop on here and let you all know what was up with me.

Hope you all are having a great Sunday!

Favorite Psalms (and other thoughts)

I was reading Psalm 139 this morning in my devotions. I love this psalm. Knowing that God knows who I am and knows me better than I know myself just puts a smile on my face.  He formed me. He created me. He loves me.

And he loves you as well! He knows you just as well as He knows me!

Psalm 139:1-2 says “You have searched me, Lord and you know me. You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar.”

He knows what we’re going to say before we even THINK it! I can’t wrap my head around that.

Verse 6, “Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too lofty for me to attain.”

I take comfort in knowing that there are just some things I’m not meant to know. At least not this side of heaven. I don’t know how I’d handle knowing certain things. My brain just wouldn’t be able to process it.

God knows what’s best. We need to remember that He has a plan for us. We just need to place our trust in Him.

So I’m still struggling a little bit with the vertigo. I had to leave work early today because I just wasn’t feeling well. I went back to Urgent Care and the doctor gave me a prescription this time for the sinus infection. I had been taking over the counter meds for it but it just wasn’t working.

Oddly, the prescription she gave me the other day for the vertigo doesn’t work half as good as the over the counter meds for dizziness. Go figure. LOL.

OH! So in two weeks I’m headed back to Tennessee to see my dad again! So I definitely need to kick sinus problem before I get on a plane. Because flying with a sinus infection or ear infection is AWFUL! Years ago I flew with a sinus infection and oh my goodness I was miserable. I was in so much pain that I was pretty much rocking back and forth with my hands over my ears. It took TWO DAYS after I got off the plane for my ears to pop.

How has your week been? 

What’s your favorite psalm(s)?

Dizziness is the Worst

This past Saturday I suddenly started having random bouts of dizziness. It was awful. The room would suddenly start spinning when I bent over or looked up. I figured it was my sinuses beginning to act up.

Sunday after church I decided to take a trip to Urgent Care to see what was going on. I apparently have an upper respiratory infection with benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV). It is triggered by certain changes in head position, such as tipping the head up or down. The doctor gave me a medication to help with the dizziness.

This vertigo business is no joke! I woke up this morning sick to my stomach, the room was spinning and laying down just made it worse. I took the medication as well as an over the counter medication and though it’s not completely gone, at least I can function.

Have you ever experienced vertigo? How did it make you feel? What remedies work for you?
