50th Birthday!!
« on: Dec 31 2007, 03:04 PM »
Hi everyone

I need you all to send me positive vibes to prop me up so I can get through my 50th birthday party on Friday, organised for me by my daughters & husband.  I'm having a particularly difficult time with my balance at the moment - not so much spins just dizzier than normal and finding it hard to keep my balance.  So anything you can send over the airways would be a great help.  I'm pretty apprehensive about the occasion - I'm sure you all know the stresses social occasions can cause. 

I shan't be alone though - there will be another 3 people attending with Meniere's so perhaps we can stand together and lean on each other!  lol!

Happy New Year to everyone too.

Hi Chris,

I know how you must be feeling - any social gatherings have the same effect on  me and I'm on edge the moment I walk out of the front door, thesedays!   I had to spend Christmas with family this year and I too was particularly uneasy with the thought of that.  However, it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be and I'm glad that I didn't go down with one of my last minute 'mystery' illnesses that I usually get when I don't want to go somewhere  :-X  Anyway, I'm sure you'll be fine - you don't look 50yrs of age, by the way!!!

Sending lots of positive thoughts/vibes your way :)

Hi Christina

I know how you must be feeling, I have to push myself to go to parties and things these days .... I always worry about becoming ill and making an exhibition of myself.  My concern is always worrying about spoiling things for other people.

However, you will be among friends who are there because they care about you.  I am sure once you get into the party spirit you'll be fine.

I hope it all goes well - 'Happy 50th and Happy New Year!!'  :D :D :D

Thanks everyone.  I know you'll all be rooting for me! 
Simon - thanks for saying I don't look 50 - that's just the sort of comment I need to perk me up!  Cheers!

I'll let you know how I go on.

Hi Christina, great that you have the support for your Birthday and just go and be pampered. I am sure they will understand if you want to escape for a few quiet minutes. Don't get like me, being more comfortable with my own company, don't get me wrong I do enjoy it but a little goes a long way for me and have opted out of a lotof things recently  ;)

Hi everyone

Just to let you all know, my birthday party was great.  I managed to get through it all without mishap and even did some dancing!  Next day I had a bad attack though but that was to be expected really.

Thanks for all your support to get me through - it worked!
