I caught the stomach flu bug and spent yesterday night on the toilet holding a bucket. Too much information, sorry. It was not fun at all. I lost 8 lbs of water in 1 night, honestly. Slept most of the morning and in the afternoon decided to go downstairs into the kitchen and make some tea. I am home alone during the day.
Either from dehydration or from the meds I am still taking after surgery, while I was making tea I felt faint. Everything went dark, knees got weak, hands were seizing. I did not want to loose consciousness and fall on the tile floor, so I decided to run to the living room (about 20 ft away) and land on the couch. I guess I was leaning forward and accelerating as I ran, Red Bull-like. Well I miscalculated the angle and the wall stopped me. I came to sitting on the floor. I can proudly say that my forehead is stronger than my drywall. Only a few scratches and some paint chips stuck in my face. Nothing "Covergirl" wouldn't hide. The wall was not so lucky - a gaping round hole 8" in diameter. If there was a stud behind the drywall, I would be now googling "how to remove brain matter from hardwood floor".
My mom told me to get a brain scan and ECG. My husband told me to find a handyman and get the effin' wall fixed. It sounds like a good plan to me. Does not even have to be handy...
