Guest sonotech Posted April 17, 2006 Report Share Posted April 17, 2006 I was feeling normal (for ME) on saturday evening and got all of the Easter stuff ready for my kids. We were also planning to have both MY family AND my HUSBANDS family over on sunday eve for a little party (and yes, I do have that social anxiety thing).Anyway......woke up sunday morning when I heard the kids going through their Easter baskets in the living room and decided to get up and hide the eggs for their egg hunt (outside). My husband and I were outside hiding the eggs when I started to get "that feeling" so I dashed for the house where I PASSED OUT on the sofa (luckily on something soft). When I opened my eyes my husband said he was going to take the kids out to hunt eggs while I rested (he video taped so I could watch it later). Well I took my midodrine so that hopefully I would be able to get up soon, but passed out again instead (after taking midodrine.....is that a big no-no??.Woke up 2hrs later with a RAGING MIGRAINE and the right side of my face SWOLLEN!! I felt so dizzy, nauseous, and in pain that I was in bed ALL DAY (til 10pm) and missed the party AND MORE IMPORTANTLY I missed Easter with my husband and CHILDREN.I feel horrible (mentally) and am angry at myself for not being able to "pull myself together" long enough to be there for my family.Could the midodrine have caused the problem since I passed out after taking it? I took my BP after waking up and it wasnt high (at THAT time).How does everyone ELSE deal with that "failure" feeling when you feel like you let others down?I have been crying all day today and it still bothers me.
