Oh, man. That's happened to me so many times. I better be more careful.

I love how you threw in that description. I got such a cute image in my head.

I've heard of people getting that feeling before, but I don't believe I've ever experienced it. Very infrequently, I will feel like the room is spinning just after I get in bed and close my eyes. I don't know what triggers that. I have a feeling it's when I go to bed just after physical exertion.

I know someone who is prone to fainting, and he told me it is very unpleasant. The vasovagal symptoms are quite unnerving. You also have a deep sense of dread that you cannot suppress.
Sometimes I forget that other countries don't have free health care. It's so odd to me that you'd have to pay for that. The funny thing is, even though it's free in Canada, I've only been to the hospital once in my life. It was when I was quite little. Of course, I have visited others in the hospital, but only went to the hospital once for something to do with my health.
