That's start at the end, that is the end of last school year and even before that. Last school year was not a great year. It was anything personally against me but everyone that I work with at school and on Twitter had stinky years with lots of bad stuff happening to them. I wanted to help them. I didn't want to just be the positive cheerleader telling them annoying positive phrases. It was just stuff they had to go through and I tried to be there for them.
At the last week and 2 days of the school year, I developed vertigo. Yuck! It was debilitating! I woke up that Sunday throwing up and spinning. Monday was even worse and I had to take the day off from school. I went into a walk in clinic and they gave me a prescription to help the spinning. Then, I went to my friend who is a physical therapist that specializes in vertigo. She did some testing on me and gave me some exercises to help me get better. I felt worse than being drunk. I walked tilted to the right. I couldn't drive. I couldn't lay back. I couldn't close my eyes. I was most comfortable lying at a 45 degree angle and just staring into space. I had to have my family drive me to school and some colleagues drive me home. I couldn't look at the computer screen. I did go home early two days after the kids took their final exams. I was so thrilled that a colleague offered to grade some of my exams. It was so helpful. I was doing everything in slow motion. I now have a better understanding of what it is like when kids have concussions. I couldn't go any faster. I couldn't think. I was so tired. I didn't feel like myself and I was mad. I just wanted to walk up normal. I did my exercises and rested a lot so I was better after about one and a half week. I know people suffer from it a lot longer than that and I can't imagine.
But, due to this, I didn't end the school year the way I normally do. I would pull everything out of my school closets and toss stuff I didn't use this year. I would reorganize. I would pack up neatly so I could come in fresh for this school year. Nope, I just stuffed stuff away. I am not looking forward to trying to find things. But, it was what I had to do. It will all be fine in the end.
So, my title...I am going to try to find a happy medium this year. Not getting too busy or too far behind. Not taking too much home with me. Exercising, sleeping, staying healthy. Then, maybe I will find a happy medium or maybe at least be medium happy.
