I don’t know what’s up. Literally. I have vertigo so badly I am holding on to the desk as I type. My shoulders are so tense I can barely turn my head. My stomach is spinning way too much for food.
My ears are not ringing. They are not sore. My throat does not hurt. Whatever this is, it’s coming from my back and my neck. I’m thinking the muscle tension is the result of two days spent freezing and shivering.
I am at work. I plan to stay at work. My students are in the middle of a three day highstakes test and I am not abandoning them to the questionable mercies of a sub. Not only that, the principal is my proctor, and the kids are nervous enough with her in the room.
Update: Okay, all — I am glad you love me, but I am fine. I just recently had a stress test on my heart and it is in excellent shape. I am not having a heart attack. The problem is in my neck and shoulder. The vertigo only bothers me when I move my head.
To my family: quit making my cell phone ring while I’m trying to teach!
