Where are you located? I have couple of versions of MS Office for Mac on CD's that I was going to send off to the local thrift store. I know I have more than one but the one I can put my hands on is the 2004 version and the key code is on the package. You can have it for the cost of postage. I also have the 2011 version somewhere but I'm not sure just where it is at the moment.
The wife came down with vertigo a while back. She went to see a physiotherapist that specializes in treatment. She came up with a series of exercises which seem to be working. It still acts up now and then but not all that often and not nearly as intense.
