Crazy Dizzy

You know all those times I told the computer how I was getting diabetes from all the candy I have been eating? I think it finally worked. I am not sure, but for the last few days, I have been really dizzy, and find that if I don't eat consistently, that I feel faint.
Today I had taken the kids to the park. Thomas decided to climb the big mountain. I was busy reading a book (thank you very much), then i heard him crying. I walked over to see if he was ok, and was met by Hazel and the neighbor saying he was hurt really bad. He had quite a cut on his knee. Enough that I thought we needed to go home, and possibly needed stitches. I got home and was cleaning out the wound, and after I was all finished picked him up to carry him to the couch or a little R and R. I had the little kids on the counter, stranded. (They are so much happier when the can see what is going on, and what I am doing.) Before I can make it to the kitchen, I start to feel really nauseated, and dizzy. I yell for Tom (Thank goodness he was there) but he doesn't come. I yell again, and again ignored. I stumble to the chair and yell "Tom, help me." Then I am out. Next thing I know, Tom is over me talking to 911 on the phone saying, "she is waking up now. After a few questions about who I am, and what day is it, I am cleared. I guess I didn't stay on the chair. My legs were twisted under me, and my back was hurting. I must have hit it on the way down. I think I had a seizure, and when I woke up my jaw was achy from biting down so hard. After some coke, I felt a little better.
I know what you are all thinking...pregnant. I thought it too for just a second, since I am kind of a fainter when I am pregnant, but first of all, I have am IUD ( too much information?) Second, I hadn't done anything that could make you get pregnant since my period thanks to Tom being out of town and all (wow, personal stuff here. It is cool because only girls and Mark read this, and Mark is cool about period stuff. ), but just to be sure, I took a pregnancy test. Thank you-negative.
Do you think I should worry? I am planning on not worrying.

Did 911 seem concerned? They didnt come I am assuming. Did they think you should get checked?? HMMMM??? Mark is so cool that he can talk about periods, IDU's and sex!

Yes, I am THAT cool. And I plan on worrying until you get a complete physical. Sounds kinda scary to me.

Memzy said...

Really scary. I am freaking out here! Get to a doctor aysap.

You should google your symptoms, self-diagnose yourself. I almost faint all the time, but I've only actually fainted once. I was in high school, and I had just finished mowing the lawn... then, BAM, I fainted.

I must insist on a hospital visit. Maybe I will call your VT for a homemade casserole. That should make you feel better.

Do you think you could have a flu? I think you should trust your instincts, if you feel you should go, go to the doctor. If you don't get better within a couple weeks go get checked out. I hope everything gets better soon. Tell Thomas I hope his knee gets better.

I'm worried!

Emily said...

You are scaring me! Yes, you need to def. get that checked out. Keep us posted!

I am the type of person who NEVER goes to the doctor except when I am 5 months pregnant and I start going for prenatal care. That being said, I would go to the doctor.

This happens to everyone right before they meet me. I wouldn't worry about it. I'm like the blogging world's Beatles.

And maybe eat some more protein?

Oh and pregnancy tests lie all the time.

I think it is probably diabetes. I am pretty sure I have it too. I get super dizzy and shaky if I don't eat ALL the time, and have passed out a time or two. My question, Katie, ARE YOU STILL A CLOSET NURSER? I haven't passed out since I was nursing. Katie, Atticus is almost 2. That is sick.

Annie said...

Since I have NEVER passed out in my life I would be VERY worried. Just go get checked out...K
