Well, I think my two car accidents may have exacerbated this stupid fucking Meniere's. They (and by they I mean "doctors") would like for me to take water pills for the rest of my life. They say the diuretics will help stabilize and remove fluids from my body, including my ear. Well, brilliant. But guess what was the number one thing I gave up after the car accidents? I'll tell you because otherwise you may never know as you don't live inside my fucking head, thank God, for you. It's coffee. After the accidents, and during the concussions, I gave up coffee. Caffeine really messed with me and gave me (what I now know as) light vertigo and nausea. So, I figured, why not just continue to not drink any caffeine or coffee, despite my previous love for it; up to five or six cups per day. Guess what caffeine/coffee is? A natural diuretic. Holy shit! What if instead of taking fucking water pills that may or may not damage my kidneys long term, I could just start drinking coffee, which I love, again? Are you fucking kidding me? But, it sounds good in theory, but would it work?
I'll tell you what, early signs are great. I could barely sleep last night because my ear was so plugged up that the ringing in my ears was like a goddamn alarm clock all night. I woke up and it was worse than it had been for days. I could barely stand up without feeling woozy. Then, I had a cup of coffee. Then, another. Soon, I was back on the phone/email doing some work. I barely noticed it at first but suddenly I had to catch myself. I felt 75% better. I could still notice some "plugged-ness" in my ear but my balance was once again perfect. I could drive no problem. I could talk to people and not feel like I was going to fall down or throw up. It was amazing. I know, it's not a perfect solution as caffeine can aggravate my Meniere's but, guess what? WHO GIVES A FUCK! I don't want to ruin my kidneys to help with my ear. The hearing and dizziness is a pain in the ass but without kidneys, it's lights out. Plus, they said the average person has Meniere's for 10 years, but that's because muthafuckers usually die as Meniere's mainly affects old people. I'm not signing up for 30 years of pills assholes. I'm just fucking not. I have a more natural way to help with the dizzies and I think I may have found a natural reason I was keeping this shit at bay for so many years. So, praise be to Maxwell's House! CHECK THIS SONG OUT IF YOU HAVEN'T HEARD IT (of course, if I don't tell you what it is, then how the hell would you know if you've already heard it? Well, I'll give you a hint: it's an old blues song by one of my favorite finger-pickers. OK, that may not be a good enough hint. Just click the fucking link you would've already seen what it is versus reading all my nonsense and trying to figure it out from vague-ass clues. It's almost pointless unless you know me, rough. Seriously, why are you still reading? I don't even know what I'm talking about anymore...)
Good luck, and Goodnight.
