Well *that* was fun [Sep. 6th, 2005|03:41 pm]
Went to the allergist. Needed blood drawn. Had trouble finding a vein. Got nervious. Passed out.

Passed out.

Came to. Had no idea where I was. Who the hell are these people? Why do I feel like I'm going to throw up?

Remembered. Laid down (I stayed mostly upright through that entire process) Got chocolate and water. Finished the exam (blood pressure was fine about 5 minutes after passing out.) laid down somemore. Still felt panicky. Got up the first moment I thought I would be able to drive myself home, scheduled another apointment about a month from now (thank god they gave me alittle card, I couldn't for the life of me tell you when it is) went out to the car, turned the AC on for the first time since the gas prices spiked, called darxus, drove home (thinking I was going to throw up the entire way) grabbed my top and my cell and crawled into bed. called mom, left voicemail. Called kim and talked to her. Mom called me back, was very proud of me for handling this situation all by myself. made me feel less panicky.

Still in bed with laptop. Not going to the diesl. Just failed at not asking Darxus to come home early. If he says he can't, that's fine, but I fucking needed to ask.

I passed out the first time I gave blood, and it's been troublesome ever since, but the theory was that when I was in college (the first time) I had horrid nutritional habits, and so it took too much out of me to give blood. I'm much better now, but still leery of giving blood.

Much sympathy. Hope you turn back to normal coloration soon--try to eat better these next few days, huh?

I'm sorry you feel like crap. :( That's no good at all.

I'm horrible with getting blood drawn. I passed out two or three times getting blood drawn for my marriage license. It sucks in a bad way.

My general treatment is changing into jammies, putting on a movie I don't mind sleeping through, and crashing out on the couch with something cold to drink like juice.

Hope you feel better soon!
