Today S will come home having gone to his 12th meeting in as many days. I'm so proud of him I feel like I could burst. We will get through this and figure out how to make it work. I know we will. I'm reading a lot about patience and time out in the blogosphere and it's appropriate. I suppose it's a lesson we have to continually be reminded of.
At least, today I have confidence. ;-)
But I do have to share this crazy tidbit. Yesterday I went to an exercise class with my neighbor. Another friend of ours is training to be an instructor and so this was a practice class for her. So we start by marching in place, some funky situps and pushups. I'm pretty strong from working outside, but I was feeling a little burn. Well, about 10 minutes into the class, we move from sitting to standing and I get totally lightheaded. I go to sit down and have some water and completely pass out. I come to about 45 seconds later to my friend trying to wake me (convieniently, she's a nurse) and another woman on the phone calling 911. I think the first thing I said was, don't call 911! But of course they did and the paramedics said my blood pressure was pretty much dead so they took me to the ER where I sat for a few hours growing more and more annoyed with myself. Who the hell FAINTS in a freaking exercise class! The only good part was that S came and hung out with me for the hours and cheered me up as much as possible.
I'm blaming it on lack of water, but who knows. The tests all came back and said I was fine. Now that's some crazy shit, eh?
Anyway. Catching up on blogs.
Thanks for welcoming me into the blogosphere, peeps. Y'all rock!
