My niece Ani and I took a long weekend trip to Vermont recent. We had planned this trip to celebrate her 13th birthday and my 40th birthday. The trip was perfect, we went to Ben and Jerry’s to do the factory tour and have some ice cream, hiked Quechee Gorge and visited a horse farm. For me, this trip was just what I needed. I needed to get away and remember the good things in life. My father came with us as a driver, as we were unsure if my Meniere’s disease would allow me to drive and function as I wanted. Luckily for me, I have been seeing a new ENT who is taking an aggressive treatment plan which involves injections through my eardrum into my inner ear with steroids to stop the vertigo. Now I will go deaf quicker but I am willing to take that if the vertigo stops, as that is what prevents me from enjoying my life. However, I was lucky and only had one or two quick dizzy spells and was able to be active the whole time.
Below are a few pictures from the trip. I will definitely be back to Vermont again as soon as possible, I fell in love with Vermont completely, I would move there if I could.
