So, yesterday I was out and about shopping well more window shopping than shopping. I was suppose to be looking for an interview suit. N E Ways, I was in Foley’s at the Galleria and some how got into an impromptu makeover, which is not out of the ordinary for me. I got up to pay for the one product I liked and I was about to pay when the next thing I know, I woke up on the floor across from the make-up counter with my sales associate asking me if I was OK. YEP I fainted…blacked out…lost consciousness whatever you call it. I am not a fainter, as a matter fact the last time I could remember fainting I was around 6th or 7th grade and my dad was giving me one of my last spankings as a child. I remember it because in that instance I didn’t awake to some one asking me if I was OK, but my dad still hitting me because he thought I was FAKING!! LOL.
Anyway, the fainting made me think about my strength, I always think of myself as being kind of strong and fainting seems so weak. LOL. Look, I know the fainting doesn’t mean I’m weak, as a matter of fact it was my body trying to tell me something. After lots of discussion I think I might have been a bit dehydrated. I talked to one of my trainers (SWAT officer) this morning and he was like you probably were dehydrated that is usually the first sign. He told me next time I feel that way just start some deep breathing and get to some food and water ASAP and a seat or my knees. Rhonnie also gave me great advice, she is a RN (not by profession these days).
Normally my brushes with mortality are not physical, but mental or emotional, you know someone saying something rude or me finding out what I had assumed was the wrong assumption. This physical brush shook me for a minute, but I am cool today and plan on going out to hunt for a suit soon, right after I drink 2 more liters of water.
Oh yeah I was fine, EXTREMELY embarrassed and my tail bone hurts, which is surprising considering the amount of junk I have in my trunk. Plus as soon as I regained my composure I had an excuse to by a chocolate chip cookie, I needed to get my blood sugar up IMMEDIATELY !
