Quilt With Us

I have been hit with Sudden Sensorineural Hearing Loss and am looking to talk with others with this same illness. I am pretty much confined to a chair with the vertigo that goes with it. I went from a normal life to not being able to hear anything in one ear or being able to keep my balance in about 5 minutes. I know this is a site to talk about all our quilting problems but where to find a better group to share this with I do not know. I have many churches putting me on their prayer chains and I would appreciate all of you praying for me also. I do not join in to many of the chats but I read you all daily. I have learned a lot from all of you with my quilting and hope to be able to continue doing so. Thank you ahead of time for the prayers. Debbie Miller

Debbie, will be praying for you and that this is just a short (very short) term illness. I will look it up on the internet and see what I can find. Hugs to you and hope you are feeling better real soon.

Oh Debbie, I'm so sorry to hear of this, especially now that you have little Weston to keep up with and a granddaughter on the way! I hope they caught it soon enough that treatment is effective. I also hope that like BJ said you can do handwork during all of this. We will keep you in our prayers.

A dear friend of mine just went through something like what you are describing and she has had a time with it. I will have to ask her if it is what you mentioned above. I will agree in prayer with Carol and pray for a quick recovery for you!!

I feel for you. I too went through something like this, but they didn't have a name for it. I still have spells of severe vertigo. Last year, at the end of the school year I didn't have any hearing out of one of my ears too and ths students and I just had to smile and make jokes of it, hoping that it wasn't going to be permanent. A few summers ago I had vertigo so severe that I only had about 1/2 hour each morning maximum before I had to spend the rest of day laying down. My doctor finally got me into a physical therapist who specialized in ear disorders. It was always uncomfortable going to P.T. and sometimes he pushed me until I would almost throw up. But it really helped. I now only have short spells, and not days, weeks, months of vertigo. Hope you are also able to find some help and relief for this. The worst part for me was not how I felt, but that I didn't look sick to anyone, so people didn't really understand how debilitating it is to live with.

Debbie, I'm so sorry that you have this illness. That has to be terrible. Our daughter has Minears (sp?), but it is nothing like what you are describing with your condition. I hope there are good answers for overcoming it so you can get back to a more "normal" lifestyle. With being confined to a chair, I'm hoping that means you can use your sewing machine okay or can do handwork. You are on my prayer list. Please let us know if there are specific things you would like us to pray for and keep us informed as to how you are doing. Thank you for sharing with us. Hugs
