Major blackouts = room spins, vision goes black, limbs get heavy, I cannot stand.
Normal blackouts = room spins, edges of vision get fuzzy and black with only occasional total vision loss, I wobble a bit but can normally keep doing whatever I was doing.
Dizzy spells = room spins.
So yeah. Was seriously debating not coming to school today. Add in Cramps from Hell (I hate being a girl) and it became a very real possibility.
But being me, I came. Had a few dizzy spells but eventually just curled up on the band hall floor trying to ignore the crampage. Now I'm covered in Band-Hall-Floor-Crap on my left side. Meh. Took some Viox (strong stuff. Works on my headaches. Hoping it works on the cramps) and maybe this will go away. My mom keeps telling me to eat something. I shall make a big deal out of consuming some of my soup. Probably wont eat more than a bite or two, but there's no need for her to know that. I fear my grandmother's birthday, when we will be surrounded by food and I know she'll try to make me eat.
I ate fifteen calories worth of food yesterday. Due to my period, I will probably eat about the same today. Ugh. I hate this time of the month, I really do. Though this would explain why I've only lost half a pound in the last two days. Bloating and whatnot. Blech.
Cramps or no, I WILL be applying to Whole Foods today. Given the value of Tish's car (not too much) and the fact that hopefully she will pass drivers ed just fine and is a girl, the insurance should be okay. I'll be able to contribue about $130-$140 a month towards that. Might help a bit.
Plus, I will get a discount of sorts on food for Tish. I accidentally became a vegetarian of sorts... getting close to accidentally being a vegan. I don't know how this happened. It just did. And I seem to be dragging Tish with me, since I usually feed her. But she doesn't seem to mind, and it's healthy. So whatever works.
