This weekend I learned one of the most valuable lessons us Mamas can learn. Unfortunately the source of this lesson learned was not a book or a fellow wise parent but my bathroom floor.
Yea, my bathroom floor.
The lesson? I need to take care of myself.
I'm certainly no good to my babe if I cant even take care of myself.
and how did I come to this epiphany?
I passed out cold.
Did a face plant on my bathroom floor.
Dehydration and micturition syncope.
I passed out while going tinkle because it caused my blood pressure to drop and BOOM I woke up terrified and insanely nauseous. I couldn't even form words at first I just laid there making noises before I could finally call for help.
Michael called 911 and I was rushed to the hospital.
Honestly, I feel pretty stupid. I'm really good about eating. I eat a lot.I'm pretty good about drinking too. I only drink water, coffee and milk and sometimes ice tea. But I was slacking on my water intake and I had only had coffee that morning and then went back to sleep for a nap which was a bad combo.
For someone who prides herself on eating so healthy and taking good care of herself I feel so silly and embarrassed.
So I'll be taking it slow on the blog for a few days. I'll be taking it slow in general for the rest of the week.
