Re: Vaso-Vagal

From: fearful braveheart


HEy, I know how scary it is and how concerned you must be. I, myself, have Vaso-Vagal and it freaks me out as well as everyone else.

I'm going to School right now and I have recently passed out for the first time in front of more then just my family. After I woke up, and looked at the fear in everyones eyes... It scared me half to death.

My boyfriend has known about this, but this was the first time he saw it happen and he looked as if he was about to cry. (he's not the type to cry) I hate for anyone to have to see that, epecally him. I know how scary it is from both stand points.

But ever since that day it happened in school, I've been feeling really lightheaded and feel like I'm about to faint. I havn't, yet. But its only been a week and a half.
