Unfortunately, this week, a couple things happened that set me back just a bit.
+ I have been working day and night to list my new jewelry pieces on After Sunset! [Check them out!]
+ My good friend made last-minute plans to come visit me this weekend
+ I got sick with a darn cold
Now, don't get me wrong - thank goodness it was just a cold! However, I hardly ever get sick and when I do, I am miserable. I felt the progression begin. Sore throat, sneezing, runny nose, scratchy throat, then I lost my voice. This always happens when I get sick. So I attacked my body with Vitamin C and over-the-counter medicine like Alka Seltzer Cold & Cough. I took everything as prescribed and then the other night took Nyquil before bed.
I woke up the next morning feeling great. Not 100%, but my voice was back and my runny nose was gone! I hopped in the car that afternoon to run some errands and while I was sitting at the stoplight, everything started to spin like crazy. I felt so unbelievably weird.
Re-wind to about a month ago when, lo and behold, I was on a date. We were standing in line for a good 30 minutes to place our food order [this place was the bomb] and just as we were about to order, everything went white. Everything started to spin. I lost my hearing. I started profusely sweating and knew, any second, that my knees were going to give out and I would faint. I remember the thought crossing my mind that I was going to die. [Yes, really.]
The episode I was experiencing while driving felt extremely similar and I started to panic. I knew that if I didn't pull over my car, I would pass out. In my car. While driving. Panic. Attack. I pulled over. Called my dad. Got some food. Then proceeded to where I was going and had to keep myself occupied when stuck at traffic lights so that I didn't lose consciousness. See below picture.
Needless to say, I'm fine and am now here writing a blog post about it. I'm pretty sure it was a case of low blood sugar. However, I managed to fight off a cold in less than 48 hours. Record timing for me! Next week, I have a TON to catch you all up on. Antiquing, jewelry, and I'm sure some great pictures from this coming weekend!
Here's to being healthy, eating in the morning [even if you're sick and have no appetite], and being able to laugh at the embarrassing things that happen to you in public :)
