One valuable lesson I have learned through the years, plans don't always go as planned.
We had planned on getting up around 3:30 am this morning and driving down to the the Alabama Florida line for a friend's mom's funeral.  Around 2:00 am a Meniere's flare hit hard, there was no getting dressed, much less riding in the car for 4 hours.  My day has been spent on the sofa.  It has been a long time since one hit in the wee hours.

Meniere's is a strange condition/disease.  The flares hit without warning, sometimes they are mild but most of the time they are ruthless.  I would not wish this on anyone, not even my worst enemy.

I am much better this evening and hopefully this one has ran its course.  I do know there are particular triggers for me, fatigue, stress, weather, and dehydration.  I think the first 3 played a part in my dance with the devil last night.

I will be at the acupuncturist's office first thing in the morning.  I think it's time for a tune-up.
Wishing you a Wednesday full of kindness.
Goodnight, Sweet dreams


  1. If you know what triggers your Meniere condition, then more than half of the work is done for you.
    You cannot influence the weather, and it's not good to be dependant (on acupuncture, drugs, doctors), but you can certainly deal with stress and fatigue yourself.
    You just have to take the right decisions.

    I remember my father had to give up daily commuting (not driving, just being a passenger on the bus) to help with his blood pressure issues. Since he was close to retirement age, he decided to retire from work. There was no work near home for him. Anyway, it was a tough decision.

  2. Our plans are often for naught. Hope your tune up does the trick.
