V is for Vertigo!







Posted by Picasa


If you have vertigo, your surroundings will appear to be moving vertically or horizontally, or you may feel that you are spinning.

The effect of vertigo may be slight and barely noticeable, or it may be so severe that you find it difficult to keep your balance and perform everyday tasks.


Phew! We are back and indeed I am identifying with some of the symptoms above! lol! As ever we had a wonderful time in the Isle of Man and I am in the process of sorting out my many photographs. Holidays are a wonderful tonic and it was good to have a break. We return home to pick up the gauntlet of DIY and have a time schedule to meet. Jon is busy at work and there seems so much to do.

I loved the excitement of the people on this ride at Douglas fair - not that you would get me up in one of these things - this is only one small part of the TT week - lots more going on which I will share later.

  2. It occurred to me that, had you written a U post, I could/would have posted it to ABCW. Anyway, welcome back; hope you're not TOO dizzy!

  3. Me neither. I have enough problems balancing on my own two feet. Sounds as though you had a whirlwind of a time, looking forward to reading all abut it.

  8. Vertigo is such a nauseous condition, if you know what I mean!

  9. While I used to love those rides when I was younger, my body (stomach and head mostly) just can't seem to take it anymore so I have to live VICARIOUSLY through others enjoying it!LOL.

  10. It makes me dizzy just looking at the pictures of that ride. No amount of coaxing would get me on there.

  12. Vertigo...no thanks! Both the ride and the illness. Done both and don't want to again.
    Happy you had a good vacation. Good luck on the rest of your renovations.

    I sometimes get vertigo even when not on a ride.

  15. Glad you had a good week away and are raring to go with the DIY again. You would never get me in one of those things - I'd throw up, for sure!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Never, in a million years, would you get me on any fairground ride!
    I feel nauseous just thinking about it.

  17. My stomach lurched immediately, so I scrolled down past your photos to see what you'd written and to read the other comments.
    Earlier today I made myself climb a wide, concrete, outdoor stairway with open railings on both sides. I was shaking by the time I got to the top, and I used an inside stairway to go down.
    Glad you had a good holiday, especially if you're right back at the DIY projects.

  20. Oh I empathize with you! I should have chosen vertigo for my word. I just got back from physical therapy for vertigo this afternoon. I am to have ten sessions -- two a week -- until they have taken care of my vertigo. I had it done two years ago and it only lasted a couple of months. Of course I am bit dizzy naturally.\

  21. Whee! Too much for me, but I'm glad you shared the shots.

  22. It made feel ill just looking at the photos!

  23. Glad to hear you had a good time. Gosh - that ride looks scary. Makes my stomach turn just looking at the photos. x

  24. OMGG you wouldn't get me on that ride!

    Glad to hear you had a good time Denise. We just had a great week in Wales but I hate the reality of getting back and doing all the washing and ironing! ;(

  25. Welcome back:-)

    Your photo made me feel quite dizzy. I hate those rides.

  26. vertigo is exactly why I can barely watch these rides!
    glad you had a nice escape.

  27. I always like the idea of those rides but not the reality. The blue sky captures the fun of the fair.
    I caught a bit of the TT on the TV but didn't spot you in the crowds:-) It was very clear across the bay on Saturday, how did I miss you waving at Heysham?

  28. Yowsa! Umm, great photos. I have, indeed, had vertigo and these pics are the real deal.
    Thanks, Mrs N!

  29. I'm with Doohie -- your great photos are vertiginous! I have always been a coward around the carnival rides -- I got one look at the guys running them and didn't trust them as mechanics!:)

  30. Wild horses won't drag me on one, if they did, you don't want to stay un derneath, my dinner will come out for recycling.

    Come to New Zealand, we have plenty of this dare devils.

  31. I could miss that ride and not feel like I'd failed the bucket list! Excellent photos.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Would you believe they were queuing up in the pouring rain to ride on this, on the last day? The fares were half price - ha, as if that would tempt me on - not even if THEY paid ME!!
