morgan617 Posted March 13, 2006 Report Share Posted March 13, 2006 Well, as some of you know, I renewed my vows for my 25th anniversary yesterday.Unfortunately, I have not been feeling well for days. My hubs warned everyone ahead of time that I faint and what will happen. I prayed so hard I would make it through.My sons wheeled me down the hall in my new hot rod and walked me to hubs. I could barely stand. I had already fainted twice by then. And the stupid thing is, I wasn't at all nervous, but i guess my body thought I should be and react appropriately. Yesterday morning I fainted and my hubby says I went sideways and I hit my left shin and right knee on a door way in the hall. So I have this honkin rug burn and a big swollen left shin. The second time I did a face plant but my wrist and hand slammed into the couch and I totally twisted my wrist. I thought I had broken a couple of fingers.I felt so awful by the time we got there. I couldn't drink a lot because I was nauseated. I fainted in the bedroom, and thought, okay this is enough. I was so fed up. I whacked my head on the floor and twisted my neck!We sat down for the ceremony and blam, down I went in front of everyone. I ended up fainting 3 more times after that. I think both shoulders are dislocated from people grabbing me. trying not to let me hit the floor, which I think actually hurt me more. I got my shin again too. My legs look like world war 3. I even managed to totally scrape the top of my foot off, on Lord only knows what.So the day is about half forgotten. HOWEVER, I would do it again. Everyone there was wonderful. Only about 3 people told me I look great...I wonder if that was while I was standing or lying ....But, really, it was very sweet, my daughter in law did a beautiful job and the priest was wonderful. Everyone had a good time and lots of people were there. I haven't fainted since last night. So I guess it doesn't matter whether you are good stressed, or bad stressed, this bugger of an illness is just going to have it's way. However I didn't let it have my day. Fortunately, I have pictures to look at and no one took them while I was prone.The only really sad thing is, someone snapped a picture of my kids while I was down. My youngest is the only one that's seen me faint. My oldest son looked like he was crying. So I guess it has hit him.Anyway, all I plan on doing for the next few days is reclining...on my couch! booboogalorehappilyremarriedmorgan Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
