Day 2: My Spacecraft Continues To Tumble

     Or maybe it's just me.  Got up several times during the night, each time discovering myself face-planting against the wall'o'dressers opposite the foot of the bed: yes, I was managing to fall across rather than down. Cooked a sailor's breakfast, which is just like a regular breakfast except you hang onto the stove while the galley seems to be pitching and yawing.  (Reminds me: why can't you still buy Sea Toast?)

     Tentative plan: shower.  Neti pot.  If still unstable -- physically unstable! Oh, hahaha -- it's off to Doc-Inna-Box.  If spinning ceases,* work.

     And outside, it's No degrees, fondly Fahrenheit.  Gack.

    Later: Hahaha, guess what?  Plan failed well ahead of shower.  Can't actually stand up for that long.

     Also later: Keebler tossed Sea Toast overboard.  It is defunct.  Heck, they even beached the trademark and left it to rot.  :(  Crown Pilot crackers are close but they ain't quite the same.

Ugh. Time to see the medic

Known as positional vertigo caused by inflammation/clogged eustachian tubes caused by that nasty bug running around (pandemic) filling up hospital ER s. Its not quite the flu and not quite a cold. It will go away.

More than likely, the upper respiratory infection has moved to the cranial nerve, and/or the ear.

Try taking any over the counter drug containing meclizine.

Sounds like inner ear issues. Although how that ties to stabbing pain under the ribs is a quacks guess.

Pilot Bread in Alaska is like Spam in Hawaii.

Though not for the same "tastes like people" reasons. ;)

Matthew: :) No, make that :D

Forgive my ignorance, but what exactly was "sea toast?" Hard tack?

Roberta X said...

Sea Toast was a large round flat cracker, perhaps 6" in diameter, perforated to break into strips. Sold in packs of a couple dozen, bit like a saltine but I think unsalted. Delicious buttered.
