Stop the room, I want to get off

Sat evening I started feeling dizzy. This got worse until Mon, when even getting dressed was almost too much of a challange. Tues and Wed have been marginally better, but I'm still lurching around like a drink, feeling nauseous on and off, and frequently sleepy. I saw the doc at the clinical trial today and had to withdraw from the trial, though he did prescribe both steroids and anti-nausea drugs. I really hope they help.
  Yesterday I had to call Iain B and ask him to bring me a loaf and a takeway, as I currently don't feel up to walking as far as the shops at the end of the road.

Imamange to read emails and my friends page, but often I'm either to tired to comment, or too woolly-headed. I'm still here though, and enjoying finding out what other people are getting up to while I wait for the drugs to kick in.

*hugs* That sounds ghastly, and I hope you're feeling better soon. Three cheers for Iain - he's a good egg.

Oh bless, do let the rest of us know if you need a hand, I'm sure we could figure something out. Hope you feel much better soon!

Thannks (to all really) for being supportive.

The biggest problem I've had so far is washing my hair. Bending upsidedown to use the shower spray is not good. I couldn't even have a lie down straight afterwards, as my hair was wet. Had to dry it first.

Without knowing the layout of the bathroom this is a tricky one but would sitting in the bottom of the bath help? This is how I usually manage rather than hang over the side of the bath which leads to backache and much grumpiness.

I cheated and got Gary to drive me to Elton's shop, where I had my hair washed for me, leaning backwards into the salon sink. Much easier :)

And a great excuse to be pampered!
