The Health Update

For those still curious about my unusual maladies, here's what's going on: I've been to see the cranial sacral therapist. This therapy essentially involves a guy holding your head in a cradling position for an hour straight in exchange for an atrocious sum of money. I'm not disputing that it might work, and I find it quite relaxing, but I won't be going back.

I also to a different doctor. After doing some motion sensory stuff with me, she determined it was likely inner ear problems, and now I have medication to control the dizziness. She said the symptoms of inner ear inflamation (likely acquired during my fever two weeks ago) may last for a few more weeks.

I'm still dizzy, but its subdued a bit now. Most importantly, my sanity has been restored, so I have the will to live again. I guess I just needed someone to tell me that it's not all in my head, and that's it's just all in my head in the literal sense.

Life is good.


  1. yeah, we are the envy of U of Aers. It's weird. I think the grass is always greener. I've just been hit by it more lately.

    Now that's more like it!

    I wonder where one gets a job holding people's heads. I bet there's good money in that.

  3. That's exactly what I was wondering! I was like, "Whoa, why didn't *I* become a cranial sacral therapist?" And then I realized the reason why is because I've never even heard of it before. Then I got to wondering how people get into cranial sacral therapy. And more importantly, why other random jobs out there are there?
