This Thing Called Life.

Quick update for you all on last week...2 ambulance rides, a couple days in the hospital, severe dizziness, nausea, fatigue, 6 different tests, 5 different doctors, 4 different possible diagnoses, 2 new medicines and now I'm home. Best guess is that I had a UTI that slammed into me on Saturday and caused me to pass out while I was peeing and then kicked in two days later with The Tilting Virus (tm). Some of you may remember when I had this virus a few years ago. I've learned the official name now but damned if I can spell it, but apparently it is a virus that causes inflammation in the inner ears and messes up the signals to the brain. If it is this virus and it is anything like last time, this is going to stick around for a few more weeks. My mom's been coming over every day to help me to the bathroom and get anything I need, because even though the dizziness is getting less, my balance is still really off when I try to walk. The nausea has been pretty bad too and the anti-dizziness meds make me all jittery. I'll be happy when I get to the point where I can at least sit up on the couch and type on my IPad for a little bit each day, instead of finger-typing on the screenboard from bed like I'm doing now. The only thing any of the doctors can agree on is that whatever this is isn't neurological. I passed all those tests and my brain scan looks good. I follow up with my GP next week, as well as trying to go back to physical therapy. I really need the PT after two weeks of being bedridden, but I don't look forward to trying to get myself together to go.

ION...I've been trying out The 100. Anybody else? I'm still making up my mind on it. Also, I am behind on Arrow, but Agents of Shield has been blowing me away! And I just saw last week's Hawaii Five-O and even though I am a Steve/Danny shipper, I am also a huge Catherine-girl, so I am having some feelings. Oh, and the new season of Orphan Black has been fabulous. Alison and Felix's friendship is my favorite thing on that show!

Recently I've also watched some movies - Tropic Thunder, which was pretty funny and had surprise!Jay Baruchel in it, which I didn't expect. It was funny! No 'This Is The End', but nothing is. I recommend it if you like Ben Stiller type movies and Robert Downey JR being awesome. I also watched Monsters and I really liked both the main characters, but I was very upset about the ending...I had dreams where it had a different ending, because I was upset even in my sleep. It was more a character driven movie and though I enjoyed it and really loved the world building, I still maintain that for a movie titled 'Monsters', it didn't have nearly enough monsters in it and didn't move as fast as I would have liked.

So. That is all.
