Wishful Wednesday - I just want my bounce back

Do you know what happens when Tigger loses it's bounce?  I think Tigger got stuck in a tree and couldn't come down as it doesn't jump, it can only bounce.  As for me, I think I am stuck. It has been a couple of weeks since I've had two weird episodes.  I think I am allergic to doing dishes. LOL.  Actually it all began Monday morning after doing dishes, my left ear started some sort of ringing, then I felt a little woozy.  I thought it might be best to lay down. The room started spinning and I couldn't open my eyes.  I kept them shut and every now and then I would try to open and if the object I try to focus is still spinning, back to shutting my eyes.  After about half an hour nausea came on and I am guessing you know the rest of the story.  I was very thankful that Jeff was working from home as he is able to help out. 
The second episode came Thursday night again after doing the dishes.  It's exactly the same as Monday's episode but this one lasted longer and a but more severe nausea.  By midnight I was able to get to bed to just sleep it off and hope for the best.  Friday morning we decided to see the specialist that look into my ear problem.  He ordered some blood test and an MRI. I've never had an MRI before so it was an experience.  The good news is that there's no ear problem aka negative results.  The bad news is that some of the symptoms could be what they call Meniere's disease.  If it is, which they can't confirm because there are no existing test they can do to see if you actually have it.  And if I did have it, there's actually no cure. It's too long to explain.  For now, I just need to follow some of their suggestions to make life easier, that is if I have it.  Today I just wish I have my bounce back and I am going to try my very best to get there.  My doctor suggested no caffein, less or no salt, no alcohol and no stress (what is that? I guess he doesn't know I am retired).  Thank you for stopping by.
