this morning I thought an old nemisis was returning, thankfuly I was wrong.

Sensations of disconnection
from previous firm surroundings
becomes queasy verticle spin.
As if your entire frail physique
were a Ferris Wheel's main axel
life tumbleing ever forward.
From underfoot to overhead
around again, around again
wretching at this continuum.
Unable to focus nor stand
equilibrium all but gone
still dry heaving, everything lost.
Finally you find some solace
in horizontal surrender
until your world's again balanced.

I hope this is a thing of the past and not on-going. You have certainly captured the reality of such with perfection..

As an R.M.A. I've heard this from patients but not so aptly described! It must be scary! Whoah! I got dizzy reading it!!

Love ya!

Reviewed by Annabel Sheila
Yeah! I totally get've described the sensation perfectly. Nice job, Budd....

My first time to your sight, but when I saw the title, I just had to read your offering. As a fellow sufferer, your words are so "right on." I would have nothing to add to the excellence of your words! A very good and expressive read. Here's hoping that both of our worlds stay calm and upright.

Oh my this is a deeply touching write and I sure hope that all remains well Laura

So glad you were wrong. Hope the condition never recurs!!

Great description, by the way. Wise choice to use italics.
Not sure why, but they increase the dizziness.

Hmmm. Better not read it again. Anyway, not while I am woozy from lack of sleep.

Be well !!

Dry heaving is a telltale sign of something other than vertigo. I get that with myelogram headaches. I have low blood pressure, so often get dizzy.

You've done well to portray this ghastly phenomenon. Hopefully it's an isolated incident.

typo = Worlds - World's

Best wishes

I can empathise with your words and situation...I had a similar experience which lasted many months...when it does end, the memory of it can haunt...I am relieved for you that yours hasn't returned. An eloquent description...
Best wishes,

I've had inner ear trouble for years and often wake up dizzy, so I can identify with this write. Its a horrible feeling when everything around you is spinning, and all it takes in a slight motion to get it started.

Reviewed by Richard King
I used to have these sensations,,,, nearly every Friday night. Though I haven't gotten in that condition in quite some time.

Here's to being wrong every now and then. Cheers! Dick

Strong imagery mark this entry, utilizing unique objects and sensations to explore the precarious nature of life. Well done. A possible nit: worlds or world's??????
Reviewed by Amber Moonstone
Oh my, I can feel this unbalance. I had vertigo three years ago and it isn't fun. I believe it took over 3 months to completely get over it. I do not want to go back down that road that's for sure. You have described it perfectly!

Peace, love and light,

Ah, the title made me thing of the movie, Vertigo, with James Steward and Kim Novak.

This has to be an awful situation. I know about losing control, because I have anxiety attacks from time to time, not as bad as they used to be, but bad enough.
