07:52 pm: Dizzy

I've been dizzy occasionally for a month or so, and in the last week figured out it happens when I turn my head to the left. It feels a bit like I imagine antigravity -- floating -- but last night it started all the time and that was scary. Fortunately, I have the condo set up so I can hang onto something everywhere. It's not as bad today, but now I'm wondering if it's labyrinthitis. I've been doing what my primary wants for sinusitis, but it hasn't changed, so I think she's wrong. I always thought my right ear was blocked and it still feels that way. I just emailed the ENT I saw about the loss of hearing in my left ear to see what he thinks.

After I got offline last night, very late, I read the paper and went to bed at 4am to read a bit. I read until 6:30am and came out for toast. It was when I was washing my hands before I got the bread that I started being dizzy all the time. I went back to bed and was right out at 7am.

I slept until almost 4pm, and everytime I woke up, I had the dizziness. I dangled for a bit and while that didn't help, it isn't as bad now. I read the front pages of the sections of the WashPost and watched the tape of Meet The Press. Mitch McConnell, the minority leader for the Senate, dodged almost every question David Gregory had. Gregory asked how he felt about 18% of Americans thinking Obama is Muslim, and he responded:

"The president says he's a Christian. I take him at his word," Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said Sunday on NBC's "Meet the Press." "I think the faith that most Americans are questioning is the President's faith in the government to generate jobs."

Doesn't sound like he actually takes Obama at his word.

A place to find out about egg safety is very thorough. It turns out that both companies that have recalled eggs get their supplies from the same company, which is also part of the higher company of one of the egg companies.

We've avoided the whole egg debacle

Here at my house (we use almost a dozen, give or take, every two weeks, among three people). However, several years ago we found a local grower who lets the girls run loose in a clean pasture chasing bugs and getting grain supplements, etc. And a rooster. I could find out their names if I wanted to. They get chased into a nice henhouse at night, and they mostly lay their eggs in there.

It makes me feel a lot better about mu eggs, even though I occasionally get one with a blood spot. But that's just a natural thing, not caused by illness. Granted, and though I've never got a bad one. I also crack my eggs into a small dish before putting them into whatever. Plus I'm sometimes clumsy about the shells and do not like my food with that particular 'crunch.'

Re: We've avoided the whole egg debacle

That's a very good way to deal with eggs! I don't like eggs, so no real problem here, but I know so many people who buy lots of them.

There are a lot of bumper stickers here that say "Ditch Mitch!"

Oh, that's excellent! I hope it works.
