Cry that woke a fainting mom!

Really praise and thank God that I can still type this post. Something really shocking happened this morning. I was at home, alone with Grace when this incident happened.

This is not the first time I fainted. Many years ago, I cut my finger while peeling off potato (or it is something else? I can't remember) skin. Got a small cut, went to deal with the cut, but ended up fainted in the toilet, with my shocked sister calling after me.

Well, back to today's incident. I was with my daily routine, getting Grace to "poo" and then bath her. However, this little girl refuse to sit on her potty. So I let her sit on the toilet bowl, which is, off course too big for her. So I squat down and hold her. The process took quite a long time. When she's finish (in fact, she also refused to "poo"), I put her down to stand on her own, before standing up myself. I used to have this problem of dizziness whenever I get up to standing position after squatting. After I stood up, I felt very dizzy, thus I hold on to the basin. Then there was a sudden black out, followed by a messy flash through of numerous scenes before me.

Then I felt myself swaying a little, then heard my daughter crying. The cry really woke me up, confused, and having a pain on my face. After a while only I recalled what had happened. I quickly attend to Grace whom is now sitting on the floor and claiming that she's in pain. I remember very clearly that she's standing when I stood up. Guess I must have knocked her a little. Thank God that no one was hurt.

Later on, I checked my glasses, and saw a slight scratch. Must have knock slightly on the glass panel near the basin.

Guess, I really have to get my blood pressure checked!

Oh my god, you really should go to the doctor and have a check up. I hope it's not anything major.
Please take care of yourself.
