It Happened Again

Omg how time flies and I just noticed that I haven't updated my blog in two weeks!! I'm really becoming a bad blogger =/

You would have thought that during the first two weeks of CNS would have been relatively more free compared to the later weeks but nooooo..

I'm stretched to the max and SO sleep deprived. Crazy ass timetable. I hate it!! The dark circles under my eyes are so obvious! =( Anyway, this week has been hectic due to preparations for the Ball (I'm under deco), meetings for convo mag, hospital visit, csu, pbls and what nots. Everyday hvta wake up so early for classes/pbl then sometimes classes so late... My circadian rhythm going topsy turvy ade.. @.@

Anyway, do you remember the last time I said I almost fainted because I saw a patient in a lot of pain?? Omg it happened again, during our hospital visit!! I mean, last thursday I almost fainted again, but this time it wasn't because of any patient in pain or what. I think it was the combination of several days of sleep-deprivation, the super stuffy weather in the hospital. I was wearing my super thick labcoat and they off the fans! And we had been standing on our feet for hours...

The funny thing abt this was (wah can still say that it is funny) a batchmate also "almost fainted" before me. so ngam right? Unless my fainting spell was caused by mass hysteria and the fact I know how it feels like because I experienced it before?

I was so weak that I couldn't stand properly even tho I'd rested for sometime. They were comtemplating wheeling me out to the bus in the wheelchair. Thk god that didn't happened or it'd had been soooo damn embarassing!!!!!

Anyway, I had profuse sweating over my forehead (when I say profusely I mean it), my face turned very pale and I was so dizzy that I couldn't stand (vertigo?) I had already diagnosed myself tho. I think I suffered from a vasovagal attack. Correct me if I'm wrong! I did ask the dr and he assured me that I was right.

And did I tell you? The doctor was really professional and nice!! He escorted me and my friend to the bus..

I guess that's all abt that incident. >.< Let's just keep our fingers crossed it doesn't happen again. =/

I better post this up now or I shall forever be procastinating and there will be no updates at my blog. so there!

PS: the much look-forward to IMU ball came and gone last saturday. *sigh* Many photos to post up, many things to say. It shall be kept for another day. tata!
