Last night, as I was getting ready for bed, I told Grant that my throat was hurting pretty bad. I took some Tylenol Nighttime Cold medicine and headed to bed immediately. I had ALOT to get done at work today and knew that I had to go.
It was a rough night. I woke up several times an hour and my throat was getting worse and worse. My glands were swollen and I had a horrible headache. I got up in the middle of the night to take some more tylenol but nothing really worked.
My alarm went off at 6:15. I felt like I had been hit by a truck but decided to go ahead and get in the shower and head on to work.
I was in the shower and started to feel queasy, like I may get sick. And then I did.... (nice image there for ya) and then I felt better. I was beginnning to think that maybe I shouldn't go to work, and those feelings were confirmed when I fainted in the shower.
Grant was still in bed and he said that he heard me say "oh...." and then he said it was just really loud. I fainted and I knocked all of our toiletries down as I fell. That bottle of Tea Tree conditioner never knew what hit it. Grant said I was paler than he has ever seen me, and I must say that that is quite an accomplishment.
I went to the doctor this morning. My mom picked me up and took me cause I didn't feel comfortable driving after fainting. They ran an EKG, a pregnancy test (that was a nerve wracking few minutes), a blood sugar test, a strep test and they also drew blood cause they think I might be anemic. I will get the results of the anemia test later in the week. (But, for the record, not pregnant, no strep, blood sugar normal.... however my heart rate was a bit elevated.) After the doctor, I went to my mom's house were I laid in her bed and she brought me drinks with the bendy straws and chicken and stars soup. I found myself wondering when I digressed back to 5th grade. :) Thanks mom, for taking such good care of me.
I am feeling a bit better tonight... I don't feel like my glands are as swollen as they were and my fever has gone way down....
It's been a weird day....
