Hello everyone :hug:
as promised, news from my MRI scan. 
It came back all clear. They showed me my brain which they said was normal (shows what they know eh?)
I have now completed all the tests and passed them all which leaves me with the original diagnosis of Labarynthitis. It could be a good deal worse to be fair. I am totally aware of how badly this could have gone so am happy to be free of sinister conditions. 
This will just have to work itself out now. I am likely to be in a long term situation now (months rather than weeks) but I have already had it for four months now and am learning to work round it. It does cause me problems and has changed how I live for the moment but, as I say, it could have been a lot worse so I am grateful for that.

I am touched by the number of you who have been contacting me and sending me words of support. Although I never want to sound like I am down about it we all have bad days and I guess it seeps out from time to time. Generally I am doing ok though am impatient for it all to go away and let me get back to normal. I am certainly helped by all of you and it makes me feel better when I switch this on and see your lovely words of encouragement and support. 
I can't really thank you enough though, those of you who know me a little will know how much you have all come to mean to me. :hug:

You all deserve more that I can give by way of my thanks but in simple terms I am grateful to have met each and every on of you :heart:

Oh... I haven't been online for the past month, I've missed so much...This is the first journal I've read. You've been though the mills! Hope you start to feel better soon! Hope they are doing something for you as well, or at least given you a reason as to why you have had that problem for so long! So glad your MRI came back clear and fine! Xrays are all cool, but a picture of your brain! funky! :)

I have to say the image of my own brain was pretty cool to see. I wouldn't say an MRI is a pleasant experience but it was necessary.
It just looks like I have a long term viral condition that will eventually get better but it might be a while yet. I'm learning to work round it 
and it could be much worse so I'm ok. 
Thanks for writing Kerrie. :hug:
I really appreciate your taking the time :hug:

Humm...well, I suppose there is some good news in there. :huggle: I'm glad to hear it isn't anything horrible and horrifying, and now I will send all my best wishes, thoughts and prayers that you get back to normal and this "thing" speeds itself away. :nod: I found the following on a medical website and wondered if anyone had mentioned it to you.

A small number of people have persistent symptoms that last for several months, or possibly years.

These people will require a more intensive type of treatment called vestibular rehabilitation therapy (VRT). This treatment attempts to "retrain" the brain to cope with the altered signals that come from the vestibular system.

Thanks Jessica :hug:
Yes, I have my little book of exercises that are designed to train my brain to work round the problem. I am up to number 14 out of 27. 
Your kindness probably does me more good than the treatment though. Thank you :hug:
It may be a long road but I am already going along it :D
