Vertigo ~ Vertigo, or dizziness, is a symptom, not a disease. The term vertigo refers to the sensation of spinning or whirling that occurs as a result of a disturbance in balance (equilibrium). (more on

Today is the first time i heard of this word with a spinning meaning to it. The other Vertigo that i know of is an old movie of Alfred Hitchcock.

Medical terms and i don't go very well. Maybe that's why i am never in the medical profession :) But i do know dizziness... and spinning and whirling headaches.

My neighbours daughter and family came back for a holiday three weeks ago. Its been a long time since she is home from abroad. They only have three weeks leave. So in this short span of three weeks, i am sure they would try to cramp in as many things as possible.

They even went on a island holiday with their folks for a week, and that leaves them two weeks to see everyone and eat everything in sight. I am sure Malaysians that are abroad craves the food back home. My sister does.. and so does her husband. Even Stormy, when he comes back for a break, Stormy tries to eat as many nasi lemaks and nasi dagang as possible.. hehehee.. Sometimes if you eat too much too suddenly... you'll end up with a bad tummy ache.

Back to this girl... there's people to see, friends to catch up and everyone wants to take you out somewhere. Today was the day she's supposed to fly home with her hubby and baby. The packing and all the flurry of events these past week somehow set in. She fainted. Vertigo.

Too much stress. Too many things to do in such a short frame of time. Too many people you want to see. But the most important people you should spend time with is your mom and dad.

She got admitted to a hospital and they have to reschedule everything to next week to fly home. I don't know how vertigo is treated. I guess she does needs rest.

You can't possible cramp everyone and everything in three weeks. Sometimes you have to make choices. And just spend time with the ones who mean the most to you. I know there are people who wants to catch up with you.. many i am sure when you haven't been back for years. There's so many things you want to eat. And so many places you want to reconnect back to capture your past. There's only so much that one can do. Choices. We can always choose.

Hope she gets well soon and good enough to fly home next week.

Its getting late and my head is a spinning too now.. hhehehehee.. Bright lights from this screen is either gonna blind me one day or give me a huge migraine to last me a year :)

I learn something new today. Vertigo.
