I remember specifically looking at the clock at 1 pm and thinking " I need to get lunch prepared", but then it hit me. "oh my gosh, I feel good today", "I feel like the old Jessica". I didn't want to jinx myself, so I tried not to think about it again. Then the clock struck 5 pm and I was still feeling fantastic. I can't tell you how amazing it was to feel like myself. I wasn't going to let another single minute go by without completely enjoying my life. When you have this disorder you know that it can be months before you have a symptom free day again. At 9 pm, I sat down with my hubby again with a glass of wine and said to him "I am so blessed to have this day". It was absolutely perfect!! Remember you too can have this symptom free day. BLESSED!

Unfortunately, people with vestibular illness's have to think about all of these things in order to get prepared for an event. It sounds stressful, but it helps to think ahead just in case. Many of us become a lot more symptomatic if there are a lot of people, or the lights are too bright. And if the food has a lot of sodium it can cause symptoms to begin. If you stay out too late, it can wreak havoc the following day. There are days that I miss just being spontaneous, but being prepared really helps.
