Last night, I've come to realize that I don't like the city/town of Ocean Beach. It's so dirty and I felt like I needed a shower after going to their Farmer's Market yesterday. Several people looked as though they haven't showered for days, if not weeks. Even though it's a beach town, people were walking around without shoes. It just felt dirty, scuzzy and honestly--quite gross. If any part of SD was to be considered the 'arm pit', it would most certainly be Ocean Beach! It was definitely not my beloved Coronado, that is for sure!

I want to go to Costco. I don't know what I want or need from there, but I HAVE to go soon! I think I want to print out some of my photos from this past weekend.
It was my Mom's birthday on Sunday and my nephew "Bubba" came to visit from Arizona. It was a very lovely weekend. It was carefree and relaxing. The weather, as always, was PERFECT. It was just nice to have family around the dinner table. Plus it's my nephew Bubba and he's pretty awesome!
For some reason, this past weekend was just amazingly relaxing. So carefree and leisurely. I LOVED it!!
I think I take my Mom for granted sometimes. I don't think I appreciate her as much as I should. Talking with some of the women from my stake on Saturday, they truly love her and appreciate her warmth. I think I forget that about her sometimes. She's not shy at all...she knows how to talk to people and make them feel like they go 'way back'. I think that's a very wonderful quality to possess. Happy Birthday Mom!

So I'm getting use to taking all these different pills. I feel normal....so far. I hope my hormones and body don't start going crrrraaaaazy. One pill supresses my appetite while the other will give me the munchies....Jinkies!
I woke up this morning thinking it was Saturday---SATURDAY, really?!? I was so disappointed when I realized it was only Tuesday!! :(
Nothing puts a smile on my face faster than jumping photos!! Oh how I love them so much!!
They're so awkwardly funny!! I think I can't wait to get married just to take funny jumping photos!!!
....aaaaaand, I think my wedding song will be Etta James', "At Last"--it'll be quite fitting, dontcha think? LOL! :)
I wish more people in my office building would know more about Elevator etiquette....so frustrating sometimes!
Had lunch with TheNewGuy yesterday. He took me to this lil pizza dive a couple blocks from work. SUPER great pizza!! I loved it! Good food, nice company and great weather to enjoy it all in. TheNewGuy is pretty chill, a nice addition to the office.
And that's about it.......

I had 3 doctor appointments today. I figure it would just be easy to hit them all on one day. I think I'm going to re-think that next time. I'm so tired!
But now I get to be on Birth Control (oh that's fun to say being single and Mormon) AND steroids!! YAAAH for abnormal periods and Meniere's! Oh, and I was given Valium for my soon to be scheduled MRI--Yeah for claustrophobia & vertigo! As well as the water pill I've been taking for the last 4 months (which has helped in losing 40 pounds!)
I feel like a walking pharmacy.....
Hi, my name is Ehu and I think I'm a pill popper, ugh.

Meniere's Disease is a disorder of the inner ear that causes abnormal sensory perceptions, including a sensation of a spinning motion (vertigo), hearing loss usually in one ear, fullness or pressure in the same ear, and ringing in the same ear (tinnitus).
The primary signs and symptoms of Meniere's disease are:
- Recurring episodes of vertigo. Vertigo is similar to the sensation you experience if you spin around quickly several times and suddenly stop. You feel as if the room is still spinning, and you lose your balance. Episodes of vertigo occur without warning and usually last 20 minutes to two hours or more. Severe vertigo can cause nausea and vomiting.
- Hearing loss in Meniere's disease may fluctuate, particularly early in the course of the disease. Eventually, most people experience some degree of permanent hearing loss.
- Tinnitus is the perception of a ringing, buzzing, roaring, whistling or hissing sound in your ear.
- Aural fullness. Aural fullness is the feeling of fullness or pressure in the ear.
What is the treatment for Meniere's disease?
There is no cure for Meniere’s disease, but your doctor can suggest ways to manage your symptoms. He or she may recommend that you try to control the attacks by changing your diet. You will probably have to limit your salt intake. Controlling the level of salt in your body will indirectly control the amount of fluid in your inner ear. A medicine called a diuretic (water pill) may also help. You should limit the amount of caffeine and alcohol in your diet, and quit smoking if you smoke. Your doctor can prescribe medicine to relieve feelings of dizziness and nausea. These medicines may cause you to feel sleepy. In serious cases of Meniere's disease (when attacks can't be controlled by diet or medicine), surgery may be necessary.
Sucks, right?? I know....but it could be worse! Thank goodness it's not...for now.
