I woke up on the floor in the middle of class
Saturday, March 5, 2005

I posted this to the OB ( ) yesterday. Figured I may as well blog it.

One of these days I'm gonna blog *good* news. ;) I just realized every time I use this thing it's for bad stuff. Don't worry, my life is normally pretty good. (And as an update to the previous blog, I'm pretty much over her now. And strong enough to say no if she ever asked me to get together a third time)

Ok, I digress, here's what I posted yesterday:

The strangest thing just happened today. I was in the computer lab, in my Web Development class, when I started feeling an intense abdominal pain. I leant forward a little, and tried to wait for it to pass. It lightened up a bit, but then came back even more intense - it felt almost like the pain you feel from gas, or a cramping sort of feeling.

Then all I remember is waking up, as if from a nap. I gaze around, disorientedly, before I realize that I'm on the floor and my glasses are sitting in front of me. It slowly dawns on me that I'm still in that class, and everything floods back to me. There are people standing over me, and they tell me to just stay where I am. I feel fine, just a light headache mostly from disorientation.

A nice security guard takes me to the campus center, and gets me a free lunch. He seems to think it's from a lack of food, but I don't think that's it at all. I graciously accept it anyway.

Now I'm feeling those pains again sporadically, on and off. Also still have a bit of a headache. Not sure if I should drive back home just yet. Come to think of it, I'm glad it didn't happen when I was driving to class today!

I have never fainted or passed out before, I have no history of any medical condition, I am not on any medications. This is an isolated incident and I'm still not even sure it really happened cause it makes no sense.


A few updates:

Last night I called our health care provider advice line, and they got me an appointment. I'll be going to the doctor this afternoon. Find out what is going on.

Am I awake?
What time is it?
When I get through this day
Can someone tell me how
And how much longer now
Am I awake?
