Girl down, please send assistance immediately...

I should have known.

It started yesterday morning. I woke up to my alarm, like usual. I was feeling a bit foggy, but chalked it up to the early morning wake up. Stumbled to the bathroom, climbed in the shower. Before getting out, I sat down in the shower to let the conditioner sink into my hair.

The next thing I know, it's 30 minutes later, and my roommate is calling for me from the living room, asking if I slept in.

ACK!

No, I didn't sleep in, I just fell asleep in the shower! I glance at my watch and realize that I have about 10 minutes to get to work....yeah, NOT going to happen. Quickly, I scramble for my phone and call the center, letting them know I messed up and I'm going to be late.

Well, you know how mornings are when you miss your alarm. You feel that constant pressure of go-go-go, I'm late, all day long. That's how I felt when I got in. Just...ugh.

Then the dizziness started. Then the room started spinning. I figured it was dehydration, so I downed two cups of water and a vitamin packet. Just in case my blood sugar was out of whack, I took a fruit packet (strawberry and banana puree, YUM!). Instead of feeling better, I started feeling worse.

Then, it was almost like I was watching myself in a dream. I could see myself swaying in my chair, but couldn't stop it from happening. My head was reeling, my vision got blurry, and I could hear the blood pulsing in my ears.

NOT. GOOD.

I wound up calling my roommate to pick me up, because there was no way I was going to drive. I couldn't even look out the windshield as she drove, I was too dizzy. I got home and crashed into bed, but no matter what position I lay in, one of my limbs fell asleep. Like, PAINFULLY asleep on pins and needles. I got up and tried to curl up in my chair and watch tv...nope. Bad idea. The lights and colors on the screen sent me even further into spins.

I spent most of the day with my head down, trying to keep the room from tilting and dropping me off the edge. I hardly slept at all last night, I kept tossing and turning, trying to keep my arms from falling asleep. I finally got a few hours in, thanks to some sleeping pills.

This morning, I just feel....blah. I'm nowhere near as dizzy, but my head is fuzzy. My hands are tingling. I have no idea what's wrong with me.

It's been suggested that maybe I have vertigo, or maybe my blood levels are out of whack. I've been overloading on vitamins and supplements today, trying to balance things out. I'm just exhausted, and I don't know if it's because of whatever this is, or because I didn't sleep last night. I can't focus on anything.

Honestly, I feel drunk. Except I'm not. That would at least be a reason, and a lot more fun.

I can't go to the doctor because I'm working. I can't miss work, because I'll get written up. So, I'm going to fight this the only way I can - lots of fruits, veggies, vitamins and water. I hope above hope that I'm just deficient in iron or something - THAT I can fix! What I can't handle is getting sick right now.

So, um, needless to say, I'm a Wii Get Fit in 30 failure now. I could barely stand yesterday, let alone work out. I'll see how things go tonight, but the way things are feeling now, there's no chance in heck.

Anyone know what's going on with me or have and fantastic homeopathic cures that I should try?
