Yesterday (Thursday) all the snow and ice was gone again. Still gray, but not raining. It had been a full week since my vertigo episode (without any more serious dizziness), and I decided it was time I tried a walk all the way into town, as I needed some things from the pharmacy. Still feeling a bit insecure (perhaps mentally more than physically now), I did take one of my walking poles along, in case I'd feel in need of "a third leg" at some point.
On my shopping list for the pharmacy I had included non-prescription travel sickness pills, as in connection with my Vertigo post last week I got the advice that it might be good to have some of those at home in case it should happen again. Turned out that those pills were backordered at the pharmacy, though; apparently due to some nation-wide problem with delivery or production. I tried the other pharmacy in the city centre as well, but got the same answer there. Together with the responses I got on my post last week, this almost made me wonder if there is some world-wide vertigo pandemic going on that we've not been told about...!
This morning, the weather had changed to sunny and frosty. Since it hadn't been raining the day before, not really icy, though; and today I've actually been out twice. Before lunch, I walked to my supermarket for some fresh fruit. There is also a pharmacy at the supermarket, so I also popped in there to check if they might still have some of those elusive pills... Turned out they did! Three packs left on the shelf, so I did not even have to feel guilty of snatching the very last one. ;) Hopefully I won't even be needing them any time soon. But still feel a bit "safer" knowing that I have some if another attack should take me by surprise.
In the afternoon, I went out again. Took some stuff to the recycling bins, and then prolonged my walk a bit further as well. Beginning to feel "back to normal"...
