I Feel Like a Four Year Old!

So I gave blood today. Everything was going along just fine until after I finished giving blood and I got to the station where they give you a drink and some cookies. I remember sitting down, taking the cap off my cranberry juice, feeling dizzy and then....

I was in a deep, deep sleep and woke up to about six nurses huddled around me! And I was on the floor! And there were wet cloths all over my face! And there was a sheet on me!

I had no clue where I was or what happened - it was so scary! I quickly regained my senses and asked how long I had been out. The nurse said less than a minute. Then I asked if I fell, and she said that I slumped at the table, but they put me on the floor.

Then, THEN! I felt a little weird 'down there' and realized that I PEED MY PANTS!!!!! That's right folks, I peed my pants like a little kid! There were people sitting pretty close to me and I kept saying "I can't believe I peed my pants!", and the nurse kept telling me to shush - she was so embarrassed for me. But, I mean, HELLO! It was totally apparent that I peed my pants when I passed out! I thought it was kind of funny.

I had to call Jay to come get me - they wouldn't let me drive home because I almost passed out again when they sat me up. I got pee on the seat of his Chevelle! I thought he was going to have a heart attack! But I told him I peed my pants, so he should have put a towel down or something. It's going to be a long time before I give blood again! And hopefully that's all I'll 'donate!"
