Vertigo

As from my previous blog last night, I finally decided to get myself a haircut at the barbershop and it was worth it! I couldn't go through the whole growth process of my hair, I'm not sure if my hair was cut out for that.



I'm not gonna lie, I felt my 'swagger' come back to life and I suddenly found myself walking a different way (but I don't take that kinda ish into my head). Also, I gave myself a nice clean shave to top it all off. Man, good weather definitely puts me in a good mood!

Sadly, I can't say the same for my mom. I had to pick her up from work (which is a long ass drive from Mississauga to Toronto) because her Vertigo kicked in.

Vertigo (from the Latin vertigin-, vertigo, "dizziness," originally "a whirling or spinning movement," from vertere "to turn") is a specific type of dizziness, a major symptom of a balance disorder. It is the sensation of spinning or swaying while the body is actually stationary with respect to the surroundings. The effects of vertigo may be slight. It can cause nausea and vomiting and, in severe cases, it may give rise to difficulties with standing and walking. Vertigo is usually associated with a problem in the inner ear balance mechanisms (vestibular system), in the syndrome and Meniere's disease.

It kills me to see my mom like this because she's probably one of the strongest people I know. I wouldn't be surprised if I developed this in the future simply because I know that it runs in my family. Anyway, I just wanted to ask that whoever reads this post, if you could please pray for her and hope she gets better. Thanks and much love.

P.M.
