To my opponents --

I've come down with something called Labyrinthitis. No game turns until the room stops spinning.

Sean,

I've heard that that can be very distressing. I hope it goes away very soon. Take it easy mate and let me know if I can help out in any way - I'm only a few minutes away if you need anything.

Sorry to hear that Sean. You need to stay away from those labyrinths, they'll get you everytime. [;)] Got a touch of the flu myself (not the bird kind). See you in the Ozarks when you're better!

I know it very well. Several years ago, I went to work, as usual. I was sitting at my desk talking to a couple of co-workers, when I suddenly couldn't concentrate and had feelings of falling, nausea, loss of equilibrium, etc. I had no control. A couple of the guys took one look at me and knew something was wrong. They took me to my car and both took me home another followed them. It was a loooooonngg ride. We got to my house and they had to force me out of my car and up inside my house. My wife told them to take me upstairs, but I said NO WAY and flopped onto the couch. I didn't move off the couch for almost 5 days!!!!!! We called the doctor and described what happened and he said DRAMAMINE!! I started to take them, that afternoon and got progressively better over the next few days.

I was out of work and out of everything for almost 3 entire weeks. After the first 5 or 6 days, I had less and less loss of equilibrium, but it took a long time.

I couldn't drive, walk or even watch TV! The computer was out, also. Eating was just soup for days and days.

That was several years ago and for a few years after that, I kept a fresh supply of DRAMAMINE on hand. The pills did not cure it, just helped make it more bearable.

What was strange, that was all the doctor prescribed, an over-the-counter aid. There is no real cure, just rest.

Good luck with it, Sean.

Hi Sean,

Sorry to hear about your spins. Couple of weeks ago I was sitting in my chair and started to get dizzy. Didn't think too much about it, thought it would pass in just a second or two. It got worse. To the point that I had to crawl to my bed, didn't move all day. Every time I would open my eyes the room would spin like I was a college freshman with too much to drink. My wife took me to the emergency room that evening and they said I had vertigo. The meds they gave me did nothing. Come to find out I had a stroke in my left temporal lobe.
It took more than two weeks for the spinning to subside to the point that I didn't walk like a drunk and I still have a problem with my short term memory.
The moral is that you might want to be kind of careful and have this checked out a little further.

My prayers are with you for a speedy recovery.

Which is I believe the medical term for being trapped in a maze with Jennifer Connolley, David Bowie and a host of muppets...

Sorry, Sean. Couldn't resist. Take your time getting the file back. I can lose some more next week.
