I am female, a woman 'of a certain age' who is still trying to decide what I want to do when I grow up.

On being quiet
I am getting things done in real life. I hit the point a few days after finding my yarn that I am totally tired of stepping over and around all this stuff just sitting around as I've unpacked boxes and totes to find things. I now have found what I need to live for the near future, so I'm working on putting away and clearing and in a few cases even getting rid of stuff.
My vertigo is still here, although it only bothers me when I lay down or when I get up in the morning. It is more a backward and forwards (laying down and sitting up) vertigo than the spinning type. I did put together the shelves and fit them to be the base of my bed so I'm not on the floor on my air mattress. I just did that today, so I'll know maybe by in the morning if it helps or makes the vertigo worse. Mom's vertigo seems to be under control now, so I'm glad of that at least.
The closing on the house in Nashville is set for Friday, so starting tomorrow I have phone calls and paperwork to sign and get notarized and sent back and hope that nothing keeps this from happening. Selling the house makes my life a lot easier (massive understatement there...). So, that's what's happening.

I found my yarn!
Getting back to normal
Yes, I do believe mine was from the off-gassing of the shelves I bought at IKEA and laid right next to my bed that day. It was just too immediate and acute an attack. I don't know what caused Mom's. My new shelves are out on the screen porch, and I will put them together and move them back into the bedroom in a couple of weeks. If I have any return of the vertigo, I'll make other plans then. I think this was a recent shipment as the bin I got them from at IKEA was full, and I never had any reaction to anything else I've bought there. From now on, though, I will let any new furniture air out before bringing it into the living space.
I have a lot of other things to update, including that I finished the sweater I was knitting and my trip up to Jerome, AZ along with pictures, but I've misplaced my camera cable. Mostly it is irritating and I do have severalof those cables around here. I'm being stubborn and looking for the one I usually use as I just had it last week. The search is prompting me to clear out my office and rearrange, so all is not totally negative from this. Piles are getting put away, some things are being moved out and given away or trashed. I still have not found my yarn, so I will go buy some more today probably. I want to start making some socks. More updates when I either find the darn cable or use one of my other ones.
