I have already tried accupunture with some pressure, but that was before it was diagnosed as migraine related. I don't know why noone thought to resend me to someone like that after it was diagnosed by the neurologist/vestibulation specialist. Well, we will see Tuesday what she says.
Thanks.

I hope when you are able to see your doctor Tuesday that you can get into the accupressurist quickly!! I hope all is well with you. It's been quiet here for a couple of days.

Tonight I added DD & DDBF to our Ohana ADRís. None of us have ever tried it here, so we are very excited. Does anyone happen to know if they have specific areas for wheelchair tables. I can ask on the disability thread, I just thought Iíd throw it out there. It is an 8:30pm ressie, so I figure I will most likely need to stay in the chair, unless we have time to go back to the room for a couple of hours just prior to this ressie. Usually I can transport, but at 8:30pm on a WDW vacation that is not always possible. I did list wheelchair on the BoG ressie. I think that place has enough area, that most of it a wheelchair can just wheel up to most tables. My issue is with the noise factor. Depending on the acoustics, it can be an issue with the vertigo. Usually, if it is really really bad we will just wait for a different table, but if there are only a few that are accessible for a chair, it becomes difficult.

Now that DH, my & DD#2ís flights are purchased & all the ADrís are pretty much set I donít know what I will be posting. Maybe I will start on goodie bags. Those are always fun.

Since in a previous post I mentioned making an appt. with my PC regarding my vertigo, I thought I would update.

I went yesterday. Basically, as wonderfully compassionate as she was giving me the news, the news was not great. "Scientifically speaking there is no reason why those particular pressure points would relieve your migraine related vertigo". She went on to give me wonderful coping mechanisms, but unfortunately no cure. She advised I continue to be very astute as to any changes, and we will both continue to look for any breaking knowledge in this area.

Like many that suffer with "invisible" diseases I am tired of being analyzed or judged by those that do not understand. She had wonderful outlook in this area. None of which I would repeat on a public forum. As frustrating as it is to be in this condition, it is only that. frustrating. There is no pain, it is not life threatening. I am a very very fortunate woman. I have to remember that. I have to accept my condition and move forward. Stop expecting a miracle cure.
Thank you all for listening to my whining.

Thank you Bridget. I have said it so many times, there is a lot to be said for acceptance. But, every once in a while, something changes and I think there is a possiblity of getting better. Then my hopes take a hit, and I come back to acceptance. Sometimes I just need for someone to understand, my doctor is great and has a wonderful way of talking to me about invisible diseases. I am fortunate and grateful for that.

Now I am off the pity pot and back to appreciating all that I have.

Last night we celebrated the triplets birthday(s). I am so lucky that my young adults enjoy celebrating their birthdays with their family. Each get the dinner of their choice, and their own cake. It is a busy couple of days preparing & cooking. But I have a wonderful DH that realizes I can't do it alone any more. He takes time off from work to help. And he is in his own right a wonderful cook. So, we get it done. Today, I will have to take things slow, but atleast DD has the day off from school so, there was not getting up early.

The trip planning is going slow. We are looking at which hotel DDBF will be staying in. IF DS#2 joins us he & DDBF will share a room so they will split the cost and most likely stay in a moderate. But DS has applied to a couple of jobs, and has a couple interviews coming up, so his joining us will depend on what happens in the job front for him.

Actually, I almost forgot. DDBF bought his & her airline ticket to WDW. He paid for hers for her as a birthday gift. He intends to purchase her return flight for her as well. They ordered them the other night. They had been watching the prices and they were down about $30. per ticket so they purchased them then.

Joining in! Your trip plans sound great so far! Many great dining options, and resorts! I don't think that you should have a problem with the wheelchair at 'Ohana. It can get cramped at some tables, but there are definitely places that you could wheel your chair right up to the table with no major issues. I am sure that the disabilities board would have more accurate information for you (like you said). I am very sorry to hear about your loss, that must be very tough for you. And I know what you mean about invisible conditions, it can be hard to know that people are judging you, but you really have a good attitude (and a wonderful doctor from the sounds of it!). I can't wait to read more about your trip

Thanks for joining! Thanks for the info on O'hanas. Like I said we have never been there. I haven't posted on the disability board yet. Yes, I like my doctor. The attitude seems to be an ongoing endeavor.
As far as reading more goes. I am afraid it is going to be very slow for a little while.

Well, the update now is that both of our DS's are seriously considering coming with us. Which is wonderful that our entire family will be there. BUT, I don't know how they will pay for everything. DS#1 only wants to come to celebrate the event. He also would like for his GF to come. Which is another can of worms I don't want to open. Here is my thought process for rooming accomodations.

me,DH,DD#2 & DD#1 = studio
DS#1,DS#2, DDBF= Fort Wilderness cabin as that seems cheapest with enough space that they each have their own beds. This will be for the few days DS#1 is there. After that DS#2 and DDBF can either stay there or switch to a value studio.
Now regarding DSGF - I just don't know. She would have to have her own studio, and I am not sure she would be comfortable taking the buses by herself as she has anxiety issues. I know the solution is to let DS#1 & his gf share a room. But flame me if you want, I discourage that. I am not naive, if they are going to co-habitate they will regardless, but for us it is a respect issue. Respect themselves, and us. Not to mention his little sister.
Also, there have been issues lately with this particular son not living up to his potential. Without getting into details. This particular son likes to be the knight in shining armor, even at the expense of his own welfare.

So, that is about the end of the update for now. There is so much more I would like to write, but I will hold off until the TR.

WOW!! That's a lot of excitement regarding your trip!! A whole family trip again!

I do understand your thinking on DS and his GF. We've never been to Fort Wilderness but have looked at the cabins a couple of times. Are they nice like the resort rooms? For some reason I always equate rustic with junky and I know that's not true at all but it's just how my brain works.

Will you try to fit all of the kids and their SO into your ADR's or is it each man for himself?

We have never stayed in the cabins. My family had a trailer when I was a kid. Rained EVERY time we went away. We used to go to a local campground, that didn't have much to do on rainy days. I all too well remember it was not much of a vacation for my Mom. A lot of time spent cleaning the camper. clean it before we left, clean it when all the mud was brought in, clean it out when we got home. Needless to say, I am not a fan of camping. But, I think for 3 young men, it may be a good option for a few days. If they go that route I will let you know how they are.
As far as adding everyone to the ADR's. I already added DD & her BF to the ones they wanted to be added to. Once my 2 DS's get their flights I will try to add them to the ones they would like to join us for. BUT, if the adr's can't be adjusted they will have to make alternate plans. There are a few I wouldn't mind canceling, but not Chef Mickeys or BoG. Hopefully I will be able to add them to BoG since that is one of the main reasons they want to come down. To surprise their sister.
DD#1 told her brother that she would NOT be comfortable sharing a room with his gf. And that she is not sure the ADR's could be adjusted for that many extra people. He said he "didn't get that".
