I’m not quite sure what happened. Nor am I even sure that I am going to be able to describe what was happening properly. What I can say though is, I’m ok now. I feel alright. My partner and I are putting it down to exhaustion but just for others who may have experienced something like it. This isn’t to make a nothing out of something. To be honest it was horrible, and I just didn’t feel right all day. However, it is never great to read about it and see things as serious as epilepsy or brain tumour be the first two options that it could be. I think it worried my partner and me, this had never happened to me before. But I would like people to read this and have a moment to realise it might be something just as simple as tiredness or malnutrition or something like that. Of course if you are concerned or this goes on for longer than a day please get checked by a Doctor.
Anyway, enough dancing around the topic.
On Friday morning, I woke up not quite feeling right. I went to the bathroom like every normal creature that wakes up. Then randomly I felt like I was having a Deja vu moment. And the more my brain tried to work out what it was, I was suddenly hit with a wave of nausea and all the energy in my limbs flushed out of them. I had to grip the sink and shout stop at myself. I was then aching to just get on the floor and crawl out of my bathroom. That has never happened to me, and I thought it was just a random one off moment it wouldn’t happen again I’m ok. I recovered and went down stairs.
It then became apparent that I wasn’t feeling right when I got in the car with my partner to go the shops and it happened again. A deja vu moment that knocked the wind out of my stomach and made me feel really ill. I proceeded to try and ignore the feeling and went shopping. This was a mistake because I only felt worse. We kept the shopping trip short so that I could get home and rest. My partner suggested eating something and then napping. Which I tried, we put on a bit of Simpson while we had lunch and then I was just winding down for a nap before I was to start work. Until a scene with Ned Flanders set off another Deja vu moment and the more I thought about it, or tried to make sense of what that Deja vu feeling thought the worse the nausea would hit me.
I literally had forty minutes until I had to start work. And my job? Answering calls… having nasty people call in… no. I couldn’t bare the thought. I know I am still on probation but I was genuinely feeling like I was going to be sick. I phoned in sick. Then my partner took me upstairs and we had a nap.
I felt better when I woke up. I really did. My knees were weirdly shaky, and I still felt weird. But the Deja Vu nausea had gone away. My partner was going to take me to the walk-in if I hadn’t improved after the nap. Thankfully, it didn’t come to that. My partner and I are putting it down to exhaustion. We went to bed properly after having dinner and feeding my dogs. The next morning I felt much better. It was still a strange thing. I had never experienced that before.
So, if this happens to you, try not to panic, you’ll only make yourself feel worse. Get some rest, eat (even if you don’t feel like it), and see how you feel afterwards. If the Deja Vu nausea doesn’t stop call your Doctor for advice.
After this I do plan on making regular posts again, I just have a few things to organise.
Thank you for reading. Write again soon. Bye!
