So...A little back story. I went to the doctor to get tests because I often feel faint and dizzy in the mornings and it's quite an inconvenience. Just last week, when I took my cat to the vet, I ended up starting to black out randomly. Pretty embarrassing and obviously super inconvenient, as I had to drive home afterwards and was doubtful about whether or not I was okay enough to drive home. I get to the verge of fainting often enough to concern me. I've gotten a few tests over the years, but my doctor remains largely unconcerned about it. She thinks it's just my very low blood pressure, but I do everything I can to help that. I drink lots of water, eat salty snacks, and never get up too quickly-- but it doesn't help. So, ironically, I ended up fainting at a doctors' appointment to look into why I keep almost fainting. To answer some frequently asked questions: No, the nurse wasn't "impressed." I'm a female. Also, I think me lying on the floor immobile kind of killed the mood.

Generally when you have to take a blood test, you have to fast for a certain amount of time and sometimes people black out because they haven't eaten. So #1, don't be insensitive.

..........uhhhh, I should facepalm all day here.... ^ #12: It's not "urine trouble". It's vasal vagul (not too sure on the spelling) from having blood drawn. I get it all the time. It's a combination of low blood pressure and how your body responds to a wound (it doesn't matter what size)... I did that once AS I was having blood drawn with my grandmother beside me, she said the way I passed out and shook like I did seemed as if I was having a seizure.... LOL. (I was not). But it's absolutely NOTHING serious.

Yeah, I realized that afterwards.... =__= ....usually I'm not slow with those. Horrible pun, anyway. And my point is still valid, pun or no pun.

47- Seems all of us could "facepalm" you all day long. How you didn't get that one is beyond me. Then you continue talking saying "it is a horrible pun". For one I found it quite brilliant. Two, it's obviously not horrible since you didn't seem to understand it. You're only saying it is horrible to try to cover up for the fact that you are just simply retarded.

It's funny how ppl say "they have seen everything" and think that it makes everything OK. I have seen naked women, guys sisters naked from all angles too, does it mean it's ok if I see a random passed out chick with her pants down in teh toiletz??? The only difference between me and docs is that they can't go like " Omg you japanese have invented robots yet you don't know anything about a fucking razor?". etc etc.

126, You've seen a few naked people? Good for you. When you've reinserted peoples prolapses, changed colostomy bags, cleaned foul smelling infected untreated wounds or unhygienic areas, seen countless infections, sores, boils and warts in all kinds of places then maybe you'll have a basis of comparison. The point is, these people have seen enough to no longer have the shock value in minor incidents. If you think seeing a naked girl is a big deal then you're nowhere near in a position to comment.

Original poster should be grateful it was a nurse, not a stranger, that found her. Nurses have seen far worse situations. Hopefully, one day, you'll laugh about it.

#133 I am grateful, and I already am laughing about it. That's why I posted it on FML. A stranger actually did see me before the nurse did, though. She peeked under the stall and didn't do anything about it, didn't even ask if I was okay actually. The nurse only came in after my mom mentioned that I'd been in the bathroom for quite a long time.

Fail. It's actually called vasovagal syncope, and no, it's not anything fancy - it's quite simply the medical term for fainting. If you want to watch one episode of Scrubs and come here acting like a smartass medical hotshot, at least do some research first.

Lol I like this one particularly because this happened to me today besides I didn't make it to the bathroom. I was waiting for it and passed out on the floor.. First time getting blood taken and it was an awful experience!
