Yes - dehydration causing low blood pressure. I'm pretty sure I hit the ground just as fast as I stood up.

I have fainted several times from low blood pressure, possibly related to low sodium levels because I over-hydrate.

One night I remember passing out and my husband put me to bed. When I woke up in the morning I asked him how I managed to hurt both my knee and tail bone during the faint. He told me I fainted, got back up and fainted a second time.

I fainted once and rammed an artist brush in my eye.

I fainted in front of a Walgreens drugstore once when I had a stomach flu and pretty much came to right when i hit the ground. A guy walking by asked if I was alright, and I said Yeah, I just have the flu. This was at the time of the big Swine Flu Epidemic scare, and man this guy practically RAN away from me. I made it back to my car and promptly barfed in the parking lot. Great story, eh?

I hope you can take the break you need, COurt. Is your employer the agreeable type?

One of the advantages of being in charge of something, the disadvantage is your work follows you.

that comment about Excalibur being heavy elsewhere is based on something I made the mistake of laughing at a few months ago. "heavy is the head the wears the crown" took me a moment to realize get the full weight of the comment.

I've had several blackout episodes just over a year ago. I think the Docs refered to them as 'Syncope' Thankfully I was sat at my desk at work. I had no nausea, dizziness. Just blackouts. I didn't flop either. Well weird.
