Today has been strange. I had a dermatology appointment this morning at 11:30 which is something that I always dread. Last time I saw the dermatologist, I nearly passed out and had to have a ride home. This has also happened to me a couple of times at the doctor. Apparently I have vasovagal episodes, which is essentially fainting that is due to a specific trigger. Anyway, now that I know this about myself, I took off the first hour or so of work so I would have some recovery time, just in case.
I arrived early, at 11:15, anxiously filled out some paper work and then I waited … and waited … and waited. A little after noon, my name was finally called. I was brought back into a tiny window-less room, talked to the nurse for a bit, then she left. As I waited for the doctor, I started to look around the room. Bad idea. The minute I saw the cabinet labelled “sutures” I about lost it. I started getting panicky, light headed, and extremely thirsty (why don’t they offer people water?!). After waiting for a half an hour and frantically texting Kai and my mom, the doctor arrived.
Because I was in the office to have a few moles removed, the nurse went ahead and started numbing. She began with the mole on my back. I breathed deeply as she numbed it, and the prick wasn’t an issue at all. As she turned to get some gauze, the power went out. The entire building went black. After aquiring some flashlights, they went ahead and removed two moles on my side, but the one on my back had to wait. So now I have a numb back for no reason, and I have to go back in two months. Grrr.
And the wind is blowing at gusts up to 50mph. Power is out all over the place. Today is weird. But hey, I didn’t faint! My ears are still ringing, but at least I’m concious.
Okay, now back to the title. Today I’m wearing a skirt with a herringbone print and a necklace with a chevron.
