Dizzy still

Dizzy still

Dear friends;

I have not been here for a few weeks.

I am working on what is causing the dizzyness.

I hope you are doing well.

Yesterday I was so depressed and angry, that I laid in bed eating cookies and trying to watch Netflix.

Then my laptop would not work :(

I was not doing the right thing.

So I got up and stomped around for the rest of the day.

Today I just going to watch myself and try not to fix anything,

just being mindful.

Big hugs, from Eva

"I am working on what is causing the dizzyness." You don't suppose it could be that red heart image causing you dizzy spells?

When standing up? They have a name for it that I do not remember.

Altitude combined with COPD or low oxygen could be the cause.

If it continues, have it checked.

Thanks! RoyProp

I do live at a fairly high altitude. That could have something to do with it!!

Maybe orthostatic hypotension?

I assume you have taken this to the doctor but did she/he check your blood pressure sitting and standing? Orthostatic hypotension is tested that way.

Maybe low BP

12stargate....forgive yourself for staying in bed and eating cookies...every day is new and you are a new person. Choose a goal for the day, a doable goal and get to the next and next. You are always the cheerful cheerleader so get with it and smile and rejoice for whatever good that day brings.

Glad you got up and "stomped around" for the day! Great exercise? :) Better than being in bed, anyway!

Bless you and I hope you find the answer to your dizziness.

Hi Eva, I hope your dizziness disappears soon! Winter is on the way with ice and snow, not a good combo with dizziness. Feel better! Hugs, llwwd

Thanks for checking in. Since cutting back on my medication the dizziness is much better and I am so relieved. How are you doing?

Hugs and love from Eva
