week 463 I think? YES it is

Very confused today and have been since Sunday when for the second time in 8 days I woke with Menieres symptoms. It is several years since vertigo, Menierers worst  symptom, paid a visit.  and it brought along his miserable friends tinnitus and hearing loss ( i have to wear hearing aids but it was worse) and the horrible feeling of fullness in the ears.  It subsided a little so I took a Zolpidem to sleep.   Woke up feeling off balance but vertigo was gone.  This past Sunday there was no vertigo possibly as I have doubled the medication Serc but the rest were present.  I attempted my Wanderlust weekly class and you will see I am all over the place(hubby said listless, more like listing) .  Called my Otologist and she prescribed Prednisone.  This recovered some hearing, to its usual poor spot, lulled the tinnitus and the sense of fullness (like a sloshing balloon in my head to a Noddy head). I have tried to work on journals 

here is the work space, 

My computer desk, showing bright, sunny day

This was the Wanderlust page for a class by Galia Alena.  She is a "mystic '".  I thought her class would fly over my head but is was great.  And I wanted to try and express feeling etc in the method she described.  It fell apart on Sunday or maybe it didn't.

This was my next effort and that just went all over everywhere

This is my art journal calendar for Life Documented as i tried to incorporate the prompt  "To create a butterfly to represent yourself, using paint and fold technique."

This is where i realized my head is in orbit. 

 Last week I did not post, here is Life Documented that i had fun with and it also feel like it is a little Wacky 

This is the forn of the Tag they were supposed to attach on I settled for a plastic filing jacket to keep the cats from going astray!

I hope all you have a good week 

off to make a cuppa in my new glass tea pot.
Hugs Monica



  1. Gosh Monica, that’s not a picnic is it! I hope you’re slowly shaking off the sudden bout of symptoms. I don’t have Menderes but totally recognise some of those well described symptoms..the sloshing about in your head and the full ears. Definitely a side effect of my surgery/condition, especially when I’m tired. So I’m going to prescribe rest to you too. Although I think the distraction technique of journals and craft generally is a great one, and I really applaud you for getting up and getting on despite all of it.

  2. Oh dear that does sound rough, so sorry to hear you've had a bad time (had to smile about the listing though). Love those cat's! Hope you get your symptoms under control soon (or even better, hope they bugger off!!) Happy Wednesday, Cindy #20

  3. Hoping your creativity will take your mind off things Monica. I love your work space and sunny computer area. Fab journal pages. Thank you for sharing WOYWW.
