I fainted for the first time in my life yesterday. Well, second time if we count the time I briefly lost consciousness after being knocked down by a soccer ball in 7th grade, but this time was way more intense despite the fact that no sports equipment was involved.
It was my own fault really, I had been drinking a lot and not eating enough, then I took a wax hit that just totally overwhelmed me. One moment I was standing in my friend’s driveway talking to some mates, the next moment I thought I was waking up in my own bed and wondering why my BFF was standing over me looking so concerned. He was the one the figured out that my blood pressure must have spontaneously dropped due to booze, no food, and then getting so very high. I did look scary pale in the mirror, and I think I had everyone pretty freaked out.
I smacked my head pretty good on the pavement, but it stopped hurting after I iced it for a while, and I don’t seem to have any symptoms of concussion (although being so stoned for so long made it hard to determine, because symptoms include muddled thinking, inability to focus eyes, and drowsiness, all of which would be totally normal for the amount of wax I smoked). Just woke up from a good night’s sleep and I feel a little sore in spots from falling down, but otherwise totally normal, so I think I’m in the clear.
