I have been back on Spark for two months now. For the most part everything has gone really good. I am losing inches, losing pounds and eating healthier than I ever have in life. Life.... that word took on a whole new meaning this morning, and I don't remember most of it.
I woke up this morning at our usual time 630. I got up out of bed to go potty and brush my teeth like I always do. I go in and go potty and turn to the sink to brush my teeth. I reach for my toothbrush...... this is where things get hazy. Suddenly, a wave hit me unlike one I have felt in a while..... The worst case of nausea and cold sweats I have ever had and the room was spinning a million miles an hour.... I remember turning back to the toilet because i felt like I was gonna hurl....... That's it, the rest I don't remember, I only know what Tami told me.
She heard a loud thud and things falling and came to investigate.... she found me sprawled out on the floor between the toilet and the tub with my neck arched up and my head against the wall..... she tried a few times to get my attention before I finally came to, well kind of. She tried to help me up for several minutes, in the mean time I am trembling and still sweating profusely..... I guess I managed to get to my knees and somehow to sit on the edge of the tub..... Tami says then again all of a sudden, I slumped and down I went again, this time with one knee propped against the toilet and the other leg sprawled out.... again she was trying to bring me to, almost calling 911 (i'm beginning to wonder if she should have). After several more minutes, she managed to get me back to my feet and back in bed. She got ready and got the kids off to school i guess, I don't remember much.... I know at one point she came to check on me and I jerked up wildly and gasped for air. She came back up a little later, to find me a tiny bit more coherent. We took our time getting me to the bathroom and then she dressed me and we slowly came downstairs.
I haven't done much of anything today but sit in my chair, play a little on here and watch a movie. I am still very foggy mentally, I have had a couple more bouts of nausea and dizziness. I have battle scars from the falls.... a huge know on my head and a scrape next to it from where i went head first into the wall..... a few scratches on my fingers and my front right shoulder from hitting the toilet roll holder..... and a nicely continuing to purple knot on my knee from ramming the toilet with it... I did a little research, all signs are pointing to a mild heart attack, but I haven't had any chest pain or shortness of breath, so I don't think that's what it is. Tami thinks my body is revolting against all the changes in our life and all the exercise.... she thinks I have been pushing too hard.... all I know is that this is not what I envisioned for day 60.
I will rest for the rest of today and see how I feel in the morning, hopefully a little better. Although I know a few spots that will be pretty sore tomorrow.... I also at this point don't know if I should attempt the gym tomorrow, we'll see how I feel. Hope everyone has a good night!
