I am a mom to 2 great kids. I am a child of God who is pursuing after Him as I learn to live in my "new normal". Diagnosed with a life altering illness in June of 2007 and the end of my marriage less than a year later, life has taken a new path. One that I am learning to accept and appreciate. As my illness caused me to be basically home bound, my family named the living room couch "my perch". Thus the title of this blog.
In June 2007 I had a "dizzy spell" that came over me without warning. After months of doctors appointments and testing I was diagnosed with a vestibular disorder. Our vestibular systems tell us where we are in space. Without it you will experience chronic vertigo and imbalance. Technically I have MAV (migraine asssociated vertigo) The migraine activity in my brain affects my vestibular system and has left me constantly dizzy although without typical migraine pain. God blessed me with the top doctor in the country for this disorder. It has affected every aspect of my life - no driving, no shopping, basically home-bound. BUT God can still use me! Trusting and believing that healing is coming. UPDATE: I am slowly regaining the ability to do some things!! Loving doing the ordinary.
