This morning on the way to work this happened to me, as it does occasionally. Usually I’m fine if I just sit down. Today I can still feel it and it’s been an hour. I was on the train and all of the sudden I was hot and sweaty and my stomach hurt. I was trying to act like I was fine. Then I couldn’t see and I knew I wasn’t fine. Since none of the 7 men sitting down in front of me were going to offer me their seats, I squatted down. After a couple minutes I felt better and stood back up. When I did one of them offered me his seat, but another opened up, so I thanked him. This happens to me on a regular enough basis that I know to sit down.
When I got to work today I called mom and told her what had happened. She got worried and said I need to be tested for diabetes as it runs in our family. I feel like I’d have more problems if I were diabetic though and also like I’d have been diagnosed before 25. In any case, I will probably get this checked out just to be safe.
