I genuinely have done nothing and worn nothing of interest, hence this outfit being worn about 2 weeks ago and lingering on my memory card. It isn’t even an exciting outfit. I just like bows, and polka dots.
So I think I tempted fate when I said in this post that nothing thrilling would happen on Tuesday. Tuesday night/Wednesday morning saw me sat in A&E for four and a half hours getting various tests done because I somehow managed to lose consciousness, crumple to the floor, clonk my head on a metal edge, then the floor, had some kind of seizure in which I jibbered away like a fool, waved my arms around, and I bit my lip. This happened at work late on Tuesday night, but luckily it happened in the kitchen, and Sam was in the same room (we work together, for those that didn’t know!)
Once I had ‘woken up’ and got over the weird fact that I was suddenly on the floor and not stood where I had been 30 seconds ago, I got freaked out. I have never ever in my life fainted or had a seizure, so it was scary and strange. I called NHS direct who said that I should go to hospital as I was clearly not right. Long story short, I went back to work yesterday, also had an appointment with my GP who is referring me to the ‘first fit’ clinic (I bloody well hope it is my last) and they are worried because I didn’t feel faint or dizzy before hand, I just crumpled. I am not meant to have a bath/shower with the door locked, and definitely not if there is nobody in the house. This is a proper shitter for me, because I love long relaxing baths, and if Sam or our lovely housemate need to keep checking on me, there will be little relaxation. I am naughty tho as I just had a shower when nobody is in, but in my defence I cannot go to work smelly, and I feel fine apart from this residual headache from the immense bruise on the back of my head.
Anyone else experienced anything similar, or know anybody who has? How did you cope with it, did they become more frequent? What tests were run on you to find out the cause? I’m worried that it will happen again, when I am out on my own or driving or something… BUT I am not going to let it take over my life and am going to carry on with life as I was, as much as I can. Perhaps I should start wearing Sam’s American football helmet at all times?
Thanks to all those who tweeted me nice things, I appreciated it lots, and big thanks to Sam who stayed with me in A&E till I was allowed home, at 3am, when he had to be up for work again at half 6!
I’m working tonight till 11pm and then tomorrow till 3pm, so no idea when I will next post, but I am planning on heading to London on Sunday to the London Wedding Project so fingers crossed nothing untoward happens between now & then! I Hope you all have a great weekend, whatever you get up to! I am very behind on catching up with blogs as I have spent my time sleeping apart from a half day at work, but I have monday off and plan on doing nothing but lounging around with tea and my laptop!
