The Ups and the Downs

I would say the worst thing about Meniere’s Disease is never knowing when an attack is going to hit. I think as a victim of Meniere’s we try to blame anything and everything on an attack, ate too much salt with dinner, stressing out, not enough sleep – but the reality is sometimes an attack just hits because that is a characteristic of this disease. Over the last month that I have been so sick, I have had few ups, and many downs and sometimes it seems like a good day is a cruel joke played on me by the universe. I try to remain positive and continue to count down the days until my surgery, but it can be very difficult.

The down moments seem to muddy the good ones and that can take a hard hit on anyone mentally. If you are reading this and are having a down day, know that you are not alone! Feel free to comment!
