Where have I been?

In the hospital, of course! See, a funny thing happened on my way to an orgasm-- I developed a crippling case of vertigo, resulting in extreme nausea and vomiting. Last Tuesday I had to go to the emergency room because things were just that bad. In the ER they hypothesized that I had had a mini-stroke or a TIA. I had a CT scan that night, that was clear.

Wednesday and Thursday were two typical days in the hospital-- with the exception of having a crazy cocaine-addle roommate who was talking to herself all night about people coming into her room, touching her and leaving stray hairs between her legs *yikes*

Friday they did a MRI, which came back negative for stroke, and I was released Friday evening. I ended up having conventional dialysis twice in the hospital. I can't help but wonder if I would feel a little better now if I had had two long dialysis sessions, instead of the 7 hours I got in the hospital.

I'm going to be recuperating at home in Berkeley for the next several days, and hope things will improve enough for me to drive myself back home to Monterey Bay. This isn 't quite what I had in mind for an extended vacation!

Subdued and dizzy...
