and going "Yes, Yes, Yes Yes!"
I just thought I was being "silly" by fainting or blacking out more frequently than other people. So nice to find a technical word for it that I can use at parties to impress people.
I have no idea what is wrong with me. I"ve always had anxiety disorders - but when I was pregnant - I started with pre-term contractions and terrible IBS and it was all triggered from fainting on a bus for supposedly no reason.
I am now 5 months post-partum and my bowels have never recovered and I'm still able to "talk myself" into blacking out or fainting if I"m feeling particularly panicky or if I am having bad stomach ache or urgent bowel issues.
I'm taking Zoloft (and Klonopin when I"m particularly fearful) and I haven't had a blacking out episode for at least 4 weeks so I"m doing quite well.
Just wanted to share. Love Sarah
