Meniere's is My Nemisis

I have not blogged for some time and the predominant reason is I am suffering from frequent bouts with Meniere's Disease. I am seeing a specialist on Monday next week ans will see what my options are. Since I have not been molested much by the condition for 24 or so years until moving to Utah and taking my current job, I have not seriously considered surgery. But since I have had little relief over the better part of two months, I see surgery as a promising light at the end of a very dark tunnel. Wish me luck and pray for me.

Good luck. And I will be praying for you.

This might encourage you: Astronaut Alan Shepard developed it several years after his Mercury space flight in 1961, and as a result was grounded by NASA. I don't recall if he had surgery or went through some other kind of treatment for it, but whatever it was worked, and he was pronounced fit once again for space flight. Later, as commander of the Apollo 14 mission in February, 1971, he became, among other things, the first man to hit a golf ball on the moon.
