Today, I got home late after a long day at work and all I wanted to do was take a shower and go to bed. As soon as the water in the shower was hot, I got in. One minute, I was standing and the next I was fast asleep at the bottom of the tub. I woke up with my face swollen and my shoulder bruised. FML

If you'd just done your fucking job properly and held her head under the water, she would be. I swear, men get more useless by the day.

Does op have low blood pressure?
Sounds like op was on the verge of fainting before getting in the shower,
then when under the hot water all her surface blood vessels dilated at once, pulling blood away from her brain causing her to faint and fall.

I once passed out in the shower woke up stood up and passed out again lol. I don't remember any of it besides getting in the shower but my mom said she had heard me fall twice. My chin was scraped and bruised but it turns out I was very dehydrated from being sick.

I've fallen asleep in the shower once when I was a kid. The doorbell rang in this one floor lodge we were staying in and when my mom came back I was fast asleep with my face practically face down on the drain. I was just that exhausted and the hot water was so comforting!! I've also almost fallen asleep when I was older due to those showers with the nice comfy seats in them. But I don't think that the OP necessarily has any health condition. Exhaustion can be pretty severe, they say that driving while being that tired is like driving drunk. although I can't understand the swelling unless it was just from the water continually pounding down on her face? DocBastard- any medical opinion here as to what probably went on? Did she pass out or fall asleep? Should she see a doctor about it? And what most likely caused the swelling, the fall, water, or something else??

Brandi, it sounds like she just fell asleep - literally. She probably bounced around as she fell, likely striking her shoulder and head, and probably knocked herself out in the process. I see a lot of people who fall and lose consciousness, so that's my best guess.

I don't doubt that that is what happened. a few months ago I was in the shower with the water nicely steaming and while washing my hair, I dozed off. I don't have a medical condition, I was just very tired.

Op, that really sucks
