I've Got 30 Minutes

I've got a few minutes to catch my breath. Since I was assigned to my new post, I have been feeling that I have lost total control of my own life. First, my timetable has been totally reversed because we serve a nocturnal boss. Next, I began losing the concept of "weekend." What weekend? Just so happened that my new assignment is right in the sector where all the action is. I just can't stop. Because if I do, I might get left behind. But I'm not complaining. I have never seen my passion burning so wildly -- well, work-related passion. Because I have never loved my job like this before. Though I know, I might be forgetting some things. Last week I was rushed to the hospital due to vertigo, which my friends say, is stress-induced. But I'm okay now so I'm on the roll again. There goes my 15 minutes. I have 15 minutes to browse MyLot. Hello friends!

Be careful with the vertigo, it can also be too low blood pressure. I know because this is my problem. I have vertigo especially in the morning.

Oh! I also have low blood pressure. But that day, I remember I had an unusually higher blood pressure.

@yalul070 This is strange, may be that the sudden change was the cause of the vertigo.

I am curious about the relationship between vertigo and anxiety/stress. Any thoughts?

A friend said vertigo is triggered by stress, although the doctor said it is related to Meniere's disease, a disease of the ear. (I haven't undergone a follow-up checkup with an ear doctor yet).

@yalul070 I believe both explanations have validity.
