Ah, Christmastime. So relaxing, so calm.
Or in this family - a complete frenzy of everything.
And how does my body react?
The brain fog moves in; weakness and dizziness; and I start fainting. And it happened at the grocery store again.
I now recognize this feeling so well I know I have about 5 minutes to sit down, eat, and cool off. I know what my triggers are. Otherwise it's splat.
So there I sat, down the vitamin aisle (the only place I could find a chair; I guess vitamins are a very contemplative shopping experience). I swiped a Kit Kat bar, ate it, then stuck my head between my legs.
It's not a "normal" light-headed spinning feeling. It's more of a my-brain-has-stopped-working-and-only-communicates-in-semi-conscious-buzzes.
I can only focus on one sound or thought or sight at a time.
The strangest (over-) sensation.
But luckily, all the Christmas preparations are done. Dinner is planned and shopped for, the presents are bought and wrapped. I can just sit in bed and ride this one out. Heaven, right?
