I had an "incident" last week which I'm sure is still the talk of the neighborhood: I have not been doing very well lately and last Tuesday I felt REALLY bad, very weak, horrible headache, possible fever... I got up off the sofa to feed the dogs and fix a little dinner. I also called my husband who was out of town on business (he travels a lot)to see if he could possibly come home early because I didn't know if I could get through another day on my own. While on the phone with him I began to feel funny, not light headed but like I was going to blackout so I laid on the floor in the kitchen just to be safe. I had trouble holding my cell to my ear and also I had trouble speaking but I managed to tell my husband to call the neighbor. She came right over and evidently my condition scared her so she called our other nieghbor who is an EMT and he left a function he was at in a nearby town and rushed over too. After talking to me a little he suggested I go to the ER which of course I thought was a waste because they never find anything-but my symptoms this time we pretty serious and I don't think related to the CFS. By now the neighbors'daughter and boyfriend had shown up as well. So the two guys loaded me into the car and the two gals took me in. I tried to her to leave once they took me back but she wouldn't until my husband arrived. I now know that my whole body was twitching, my eyes were completely dilated and bouncing around and of course I was barely lucid. The weird thing was that I felt no pain at all and really no emotion. I wasn't even scared. The whole thing was a little embarassing because I was in my pjs, hadn't showered or brushed my teeth, my legs were hairy and I wore my slippers and my robe to the ER. They determined I wasn't going to die that night and in fact 2-3 hrs after the attack I felt better than I had all day. I have some minor neurological deficits on my left side and I'm scheduled for an MRI later this week. But if you've made it this far, how do I repay everyone who helped me that night? Any suggestions?
