Still Feeling Woozy

So everything has been going fine for the most part. I've been eating ok, practically 3 meals a day. And I'm only up to a steady 128 lbs, so I guess when I'm ready I know this is how much I need to eat to maintain, which is a good thing to know.

But this morning just about an hour ago something strange happened. I got up very quickly from my bed to talk to my parents about some plans I made. About 2 minutes in I got lightheaded and dots appeared and I thought "I'll just let it pass. It's just from getting up too fast," but then it continued and my parents started asking if I was dizzy (said yes) and told me to lay on the floor. I couldn't see. My dad asked if I was doing something they should know about (said no, kind of a half truth since I've been eating semi-normally) and asked if this had happened before (said no). When I felt better I got up to get something to eat my mom said my pupils were huge and my face was pale and green. They seemed worried but not overtly...that's expected. I don't know what caused it. It could have been from the fact that I hadn't eaten since 8 last night...but I've done that before with nothing happening like this. I feel like I need a shower. I wish my parents had gone to work. I could have handled it without getting embarrassed because they were there.

And Olivia: Why yes, I am talking about a certain UC you may have been accepted to. I'm a freshman there. Omg I'm really excited you might go there next year! It's such a beautiful campus (but I'm guessing you already know that if you're considering transferring?) and if you choose to be housed on campus you'll probably be going to the same dorm college as me (almost all the transfers are housed there), but I'll be applying to live in the apartments next fall. Ooooo so exciting!

  1. That dizzy spell sounded really freaky! I've never had anything like that happen where I see dots or can't see at all. Good thing you're feeling better! That can also happen from "vertigo" which is basically an inner ear problem like an infection or water in your ear. My mom had really bad dizzy spells once & had to stay in bed all day :/.

    And thank you for the comment :). I read "Uglies" and "Pretties "a couple of years ago and LOVED them! I love anything fantasy like that & I definitely want to read the rest of them soon!
