Random Tid Bits

This time I'm going to talk about the times that I've passed out. Thankfully it's been 9 years since that's happened. If you've never passed out it feels a bit like waking up, and feeling like you don't know where you are. The time span seems like it was forever long.
  1. The first time I passed out I was about 9 years old - Mica's age. My sister Terra and I were on separate couches because we were both home sick. She wanted something to drink. My mom was downstairs doing laundry. I thought I would be a nice big sister, and get her something.

    Into the kitchen I went, and things got blurry. I was in the middle of the room, so there was nothing to grab onto. Out I went; head first onto the floor. My mom said, "Go lay down!" I had a black and blue egg bruise on my forehead for awhile.

  2. I went to Mexico with my Grandparents, Mom, and sister Terra one year. I was in high school. It was the first time I ever flew, and the first time I was out of the US. I didn't drink a thing, while in Mexico. I remember hearing stories about how their water will make you sick. I was terrified to drink anything there. Adding to the story - I got a lot of sun.

    When we were were back in Texas I stayed in my Grandparent's camper. I had to go to the bathroom. You know how little camper bathrooms are. They are tiny. All the sudden everything went blank. I woke up with my head between my knees. My Grandpa was pounding on the door and saying in what seemed like slow motion, "Are you ok in there?" over and over again. Things got better after that.

  3. When I was in college I decided it was a great idea to donate plasma. I wasn't that hard up for cash, but my friends were doing it. I was in. They had me fill out a form. I did. They said they didn't know if I should be donating plasma with my allergy history. Then they said it again when they couldn't find a good vein. Somehow I got through the process anyhow. I was fine throughout the donating part. At the end they didn't give me anything to eat, or drink. I stood up, was in line for my money, and things got blurry. A guy caught me.

    I woke up, and a lady was talking loud in my face saying, "Have you ever been held by a black man before?" I was really confused where I was, and why she was asking me this. After a minute I knew where I was at. I guess the guy that thankfully caught me was an African American. Why the lady brought color into the scenario was beyond me. I guess she thought she was being funny.

  4. I was 7 or so month pregnant with Mica.  Throughout my pregnancy with him I felt dizzy every so often. I had no morning sickness. Just dizziness. That morning we went for a walk. I came home, drank some water, and went to take a shower. As I was showering I passed out. Things just got black really fast. I woke up, and was shaky. I called my doctor. They said, {As long as I felt the baby still moving I was fine. The baby has more protection than you do.} That eased my worries, but I still was shaky all morning long.

  5. When Mica was about 3 months old I got bronchitis. I was on a cough medicine. You know how they tell you to read your medicine instructions before taking it? I didn't. You know how experts say not to have a changing table on a table? I didn't listen to that either.

    Apparently that cough medicine can make you dizzy. I got that way, while I was changing Mica's diaper. I yelled for Daddy to come to my rescue. He did. Thank goodness he was there. Thank goodness Mica wasn't rolling big time yet. He did however manage to pee all over the place. 
Here folks was the boy's changing table made out of an old desk. It did work perfect because the whole was perfect for the boy's hamper.

Have you ever passed out?

I once passed out in a Mexican restaurant. I felt sick to my stomach after eating, and was on my way to the bathroom and passed out cold. I woke up to paramedics being called. They did an EKG and such and never did figure out why it happened. Thankfully, it has not happened since.

Passing out is scary. I Have passed out twice - in crowds.

Wow, how very scary!

I've only passed out once, after a car accident with my mother when I was 10. Considering that I had a broken arm, cracked jaw, and a goodly number of my teeth were embedded in the dash (this was before the days of seat belts, let alone seat belt laws) I think I was justified.

I have never fully passed out, but came close several times when I was pregnant with Mariah. I had terrible morning sickness with her, and working on my feet full time didn't help. I remember someone handing me money to pay for some books and then everything went black. I put my head on the counter and had to try for about a minute to see what denomination the bill was that was handed to me. It was scary!

I very seldom pass out. One time I completely passed out when I ate something at a restaurant. The next day all of us that ate there were sick. I passed out on the floor and bit my tongue.

I don't think I have ever passed out...
I love that changing table. I wish I had a desk like that now.

I have never passed out unintentionally. Though when I was a kid, I can't even remember what grade, I had a friend who used to spin us around and then grab us around the middle and squeeze. We'd pass out for a few seconds. For some reason we thought that was cool. How odd, lol. Haven't thought of it or the girl in years!
