So This Weird Thing Happened
Last night: was in the middle of a conversation. Suddenly got incredibly dizzy accompanied with headache, nausea, sweating, and confusion. I kept talking. I put my hand against a chair to prop myself up while I continued the conversation. The other person obviously didn’t notice, since he didn’t even make note of it. I recall I was able to wrap up the conversation, but not what I was saying. In fact, thinking back on it, I only remember about half of what was said.
Every step afterwards to my seat felt like a struggle. Since it was a public event, I was scared to death of making a scene. I made strides so as to not appear to be anything but confident and with it, hoping beyond hope that I wouldn’t just keel over suddenly. After what seemed like an eternity but was only about ten to fifteen seconds, I made it to my table and sat down. Still, I was sweating profusely and I noticed I’d gone partially deaf in my right ear. I got some water, sat for good long while, got some food, listened to the speakers, and mingled for forty-five minutes. My hearing came back in full and I stopped sweating. I was moving around fine.
I wanted to and had planned on staying longer, but I wanted to make sure it didn’t happen again. The rest of the night I just felt off. Since then, all I’ve had a lingering headache. Nothing crippling, but it hasn’t gone away.
Hopefully it’ll be gone by tomorrow morning. If not, it’s doctor time. But Jesus that was scary.
