Yes, it's definitely something bad!
On top of everything that's been going on with my DD, this afternoon, as she was attempting to shower, she felt faint, so she sat down in the tub. After she was able, she somewhat rinsed her hair, then tried to get out. As she exited the shower, she passed out, hitting her head on the bathroom door.
After hearing the noise,I ran in and found her hanging onto the towel butler...I covered her up and let her down, by this time, she was completely unconscious...Her skin was a grayish color, as were her lips...I don't think I've ever been so scared!
Anyway, she finally came back to, as I was getting the phone from DH to call for an ambulance. She stated she didn't want to go to the ER, so I didn't complete the call. ((AT this point, we're joined at the hip...I'm not letting her out of my sight for now))
To make a long dramatic story short, she's much better now, but still a bit weak.
**Important thing to remember with this nasty stuff that's going around...make sure to drink PLENTY of liquids, and to eat enough to keep your body going while it's trying to heal.
((In a 24 hour period, DD consumed less than approx. 500 calories-and that's including drinks-Low blood sugar is probably the reason she passed out))
