My ear crystals da' fell.....

Ola ya'll,




Just found out those kids that came to look at this place have decided they want to rent it.









And who could blame them? Just look at the spacious lounge. The splendor of it all :)


They'd like to be able to move in by Nov. 1st.


Only problem .....how am I supposed to pack and clean when I can't move my head?






I got to walk to my doctors appointment yesterday. I got in the place and it was like an oven in there. I saw nothing but breastfeeding chicks and babies.


Seriously,5 of them were just sitting there breast feeding.


Apparently they had squeezed (squozen?) me in on baby day.


Anyhow.....there is one of 3 hideous dizzy conditions going on . Basicly ,I can barely move without feeling like I am going to faint ,puke or both. I feel the need to wear a neck brace and an eye mask. lol




"Labyrinthitis: This is an inflammation of the labyrinth which makes up the semicircular canals in the inner ear, and is responsible for our balance. The canals can become infected, usually by a virus. Inflammation disrupts the movement of the fluid, thus disrupting our balance. Symptoms are dizziness, a spinning sensation, possibly headache and nausea, and being off balance. The dizziness and spinning sensations usually come in episodes and disrupt balance, and last from a few seconds to several minutes. Unfortunately this type of virus can take up to several weeks to resolve. Viruses are not affected by antibiotics and have to run their course.

It usually takes 3 weeks to recover from vestibular neuritis or labyrinthitis. Recovery happens due to a combination of the body fighting off the infection, and the brain getting used to the vestibular imbalance (compensation). Some persons experience persistent vertigo or discomfort on head motion even after 3 weeks have gone by. After three months, testing (i.e. an ENG, audiogram and others) is indicated to be certain that this is indeed the correct diagnosis and a referral to a vestibular rehabilitation program, may help speed full recovery via compensation. "



The shitty part is...there is no fast fix for it. This BS could last months . (insert stream of cuss words)




The doctor gave me some kind of pills used for sea sickness. They did nothing at all except make me even more in need of a nap than usual. Awesome :(

So that's that. Moving on.....lets talk about the new apartment shall we?




Obviously,I haven't seen it myself. Hubs is in Copenhagen ,he'll be coming "home" today.




It is in an area pretty close to the airport called Orestad. Literally a concrete jungle . (here's some pics of the area)

Apparently it's pretty difficult to find a rental in Copenhagen.We were lucky to find one on such short notice. I think hubby looked at maybe 5 places ,total. Most of them had really smal,chincy IKEA -ish furniture.OR they had no dryer,no dishwasher, were too far from his work etc...



So, the one we did get has a dryer, a DW, closets, it's right by the Metro , the biggest shopping mall in Scandinavia (Fields) and it had reasonably comfortable looking furniture.




Yes, it comes furnished. We'll be putting our England stuff in storage. I haven't spotted a refrigerator in those pics. Surely it is there ,somewhere.



Oh yeah, it's also on the 10th floor. And that's about all I know so far.

Have a great day guys, I'm off to start my dizzy day :)

Hope you're better soon. I think the fridge is in the "kitchen, sort of" picture in the previous post. It's sort of in the shots with the pictures of the kids.

Compared to the UK, Scandinavian fridges tend to be a lot bigger, but I only really encountered them in houses and not flats. The ones in houses sometimes have an entire refrigerated room with an opening into the kitchen (with shelves next to the opening). It was a bit like having a miniature grocery shop fridge in the house. /pointless ramble about Scandinavian appliances.

Sorry about the serial comment, but it's also in the other shot with the room lengthwise. It's behind the dining table, but it's hard to see with the ceiling lamp in the way. It looks relatively big compared to ours here in the UK. ;)

I hope you are better soon, feeling dizzy all the time would make me crazy. Hugs, girl. :)

I think I have the same thing. Hate it. I usually get hit with a wave of dizziness when I first get up out of bed. Nasal spray is what they gave me. Helped a little. The new digs are an immense improvement over England. Feel better soon.

A few years ago I returned home from a long flight and woke up the next morning with what I called the dizzy-dame disease. My doctor told me much the same as you were told. He told me not to turn my head but to turn my whole body instead. It helped but wasn't a solultion.

The new digs will be more like home. With shopping and transportation close by, modern appliances, and closets the upcoming tour will be much better than the last.

Take care and know we're thinking of you.

hey i see you've been visiting dr google. shame on you!
anyhow- i wtched a mystery diagnosis a while back-- same thing triggered it-- a long flight-- i wish i could remember the name -- but it was an inner ear thing-- i don't know -- see if you can google to find old episodes? she said she felt like she was on a boat all the time-- except while driving. hmmm. i just don't remember. i don't think there was a 'cure'- but 'somethin' did help.
anyhow-- good luck with that --

Thanks Molly! I think I see it back there.

I went to the real doctor Soul. That's what they told me. And this crap started a week before my flight.I just woke up like this one day. gah!

It IS making me crazy!

I can't wait to get to the new house. I just need someone to do all this work first. lol

Sorry about the illness, but hope you get better sooner than predicted. With any luck you won't have to change the name of your blog to Dizzy in Denmark!

SOUL said...
