Barbara Muir © 2011It should read sic transit gloria -- Latin for "so passes
the glory of the world," but in this case it means sickness
stops painting. I woke up with the room twirling violently
yesterday, and was very sick. Steven called Medvisit
and a sweet Dutch doctor came, tested me thoroughly and
concluded that I had an inner ear infection which causes
Vertigo. May I just say that Vertigo is bad. Not something
you ever want. Twirling rooms, horrible nausea, and I had
not had anything to drink, or any obvious cause. The doctor
put me on antibiotics. The room stopped whirling. But I
am still feeling punky -- so here's today's offering, a quick
self portrait before I go back to sleep.
Have an I'm-not-getting-sick day.
