topsy turvy

"I had to stop driving my car for a while... the tires got dizzy." - Steven Wright
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

it has been more frequent than before.

in stillness, out of the blue, everything seems to be in motion.

circling. dancing. spinning. turning.

sometimes, it feels like everything just zooms in, and then suddenly zooms out.

there is a fear of suddenly falling or stumbling.

very disorienting.

light-headedness envelops.

grabbing on to something, closing the eyes and trying to stay perfectly at rest helps.

but sometimes, even with shut eyes, darkness swirls.

the feeling of unsettling consumes the body.

all it takes is a minute or two, when everything around you seems to be in frenzy and in motion.

when all the while you are staying perfectly still, steady and motionless.

distressing and unnerving.

nauseating to a point.

the feeling of calmness wraps the body as soon as the spinning sensation stops.

relieved. stillness is once again relished.


having vertigo is something i will never get the hang of. ever.
