As I woke up Wednesday morning, I felt really heavy. Not sick, just heavy. I knew I probably would feel like I had the flu since I was experiencing mastitis symptoms again. I had taken a pain pill to get me through the night until I could call the doc the following morning. But before I could make that call... I hit the bathroom floor!
Yep, I passed out in the bathroom. Actually before I even made it to the bathroom, I started feeling like I was going to faint. Weak legs, tingling arms and hands, tunnel vision. And boy, was it scary! I barely made it, but by the time I got in the door, my legs gave way.
But since I did not have the common mastitis symptoms I was told to go to the emergency room. Wow, 4 hours in the emergency room getting pumped with fluid and an antibiotic was tough. And finding out that apparently it was just a severe mastitis infection, I was annoyed because I could have just called in for an antibiotic. The docs in the emergency room seemed to have a hay day at talking down to me as if I didn't know what I was talking about. After all I have had mastitis twice before. I know what its like.
The whole ordeal was a fiasco. At one point I thought maybe I was having heart issues, because I seemed to be having symptoms of a heart attack, but yet that extreme soreness was there. (Nursing moms know what I'm talking about.) So, I didn't know what to think.
But, thankfully, things are on the mends now. Today is the 2nd day of antibiotics and a lot of rest. I am beginning to feel normal again.
I have fainted several times in my life, and it is never fun. The way it is shown to be on old movies is not real! Its horrible and you feel horrible afterwards. I pray that it never happens again!
