Well, it finally happened.

  1. Hi guys. Hope you all are doing ok. I am not feeling well at all. Woke up extremely nauseated. Could barely get dressed in order to make it to clinicals in Monroe,Mich. about 45 mins. from where I live. Then at about 10:45 it finally happened. I collapsed in front of the bathroom. When I opened the door to leave the bathroom, Igot extremely dizzy,hot, and very tachy very fast. I just staggered to the nearest wall and slid down it to the floor. One of my classmates came in the room to grab her jacket for lunch,when she saw me,she grabber our OB Instructor Mrs. Collins,who proceeded to get my ice water and call for my dad to pick me up early. She stayed with me till my color improved and I felt better. Man, what a day huh? I don't honestly know what's happening to me physically. Maybe stress? Low blood sugar? I don't know. Anyway, I feel some better right now talking to my wonderful allnurses siblings. You've always been there for me,and for that I'm eternally grateful for your love and friendship. Gonna rest awhile now. Maybe some time in the land of Nod will do me some good. I love you all. Be safe and happy,Warrior Woman.

    It could well be stress. However, same thing happened to my daughter the other day. Then my brother came down with something very similar. One by one my family members are comming down with a virus that last about three days. Some of them are fainting, some just feel like they are going to faint. That sense of heat and cold is one of their symptoms. One thing I notice is that onset is very dramatic. What every you got I hope you feel better soon.

    I'd say that it was stress and your body is sending you a very clear message. You need a time out. Take care!

    Adrienurse is right.....stress is getting the best of you and you need some serious rest. Hope you are getting it, too.
