Yesterday afternoon was… Interesting… for me.
Actually it was kind of scary.
We had an interview candidate in that I chaperoned around and toured and took to lunch, etc. the interview went really well and everything was going fine.
Then around 3 in the afternoon I went to take a piss, and while walking back to my office, I suddenly got a bit light headed. A bit off balance.
I sat down at my desk and within 5 minutes everything was spinning. I couldn’t focus my eyes anywhere and I couldn’t stand up. And I started sweating profusely. Like completely through my clothes.
Then the vomiting started– and wouldn’t stop.
I was just throwing up in my office trash can because I couldn’t stand up or walk anywhere.
It was bad. And more than a little scary.
My coworkers got really concerned and even stayed past their quitting time; there was even debate about calling an ambulance. And for the first time in my life I thought “I don’t know what’s happening and I really might need to go to a hospital.”
They also wanted to know if there was anyone they could call who could help me or watch over me.
And the sad part was, there wasn’t.
I ended up asking if one of them could drive me home while another followed along in order to get them back to the plant. It was a long ride home.
It was all kind of sobering… and embarrassing.
I’m better today, and back at work, but man am I tired. I’m just wiped out. And sort of depressed.
