Me and My Vertigo

U2 sang a song about Vertigo that made it sound cool. I don't its cool as it rears its ugly head for the 2nd time in as many months.

As you recall, I was diagnosed with Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV) days prior to the gall bladder fiasco and was told I can plan to deal with it off and on for the rest of my life. Well, it's currently on. It's on and it sucks.

I can't help but wonder if anyone else that knows me suffers from this. Will it end up being some bizarre thing like the gall bladder incident that I later found out almost ALL of the women in my family had theirs out around age 30? Are you all spinning in your heads but not talking about it?

What I find ironic is how every kid spins and spins and spins just to get this sensation for a minute. Elliot wanted me to spin him around this weekend and at the end he laughed heartily while I staggered back to the deck to sit down and be grounded for a moment. It's like the benefits of 15 spins without the work - but I don't like it.
