I haven't posted anything in about a month on account of being tremendously busy, travelling between three counties, conducting some Millian Experiments in Living, appealing against a benefits' decision (nothing too scary) and arranging a civil marriage. Meanwhile, I am having the worst and most prolonged spell of light-headedness, dizziness and fainting that I've had for several years. 

This is frustrating, for two reasons:
  1. I can't do as much as my body says I can.  I'm used to limiting my movement according to pain, and when the pain isn't so bad, I can move around more - I feel like moving around more. Just now, I can feel like moving around more, only to find the floor jumps up and starts dancing around me when I do.
  2. Because the people around me and I are using the word "dizzy" to describe how I am doing - "I am a bit less dizzy now." "Are you feeling dizzy again?" etc. - I have Tommy Roe's 1969 hit Dizzy as a more or less permanent earworm. 
Will write something properly soon.
