Ways to Cope

Timer for all cooking. Mostly avoid cooking.

iPhone for calendaring, reminders, notes, pictures of things to remember, texting.

watching predictable tv or listening to monotonous music to drown out unexpected noises

Try not to scratch face or head. Or talk loud.

Fluffy socks mute the sound of my feet hitting the ground.

Do not bend over, learn to pick up objects from the floor with my toes.

Do not move quickly.

Do not clap my hands.

Keep blood pressure low, loud pulse bad.

Touch walls or other objects to keep a sense of where down is.

Avoid noisy fabrics.

Keep eyes unfocused. I know, it’s weird. I don’t know why this helps with the dizzy.

Avoid noisy food.

Naps.

Complain a lot.
