Places you've almost/have passed out

Discussion in 'Anorexia' started by XXXBones, Jan 9, 2019.

  1. I haven't passed out but I've lost vision and come close my fair share of times. If I get up too fast or have been restricting low it happens a lot more. I usually just either sit down or stand still/kneel down for a few seconds and then get up slowly and then drink water. Another issue is that I don't drink enough water so that's a bad thing. I have also come very very close in the shower a few times. It is the most common place for me and it happens even if the water isn't too hot and the fan is on.

  4. Almost SO many times at school, standing up way too fast, trying to rush up the stairs
    Almost while donating blood and feeling like my soul was being drained but im sure it seemed like i was just closing my eyes to not have to look at the needle
    At work, it happened twice for such a short time that nobody ever noticed or found out, like going into the fridge and just wiping out, and once while going into dry stock and just dumping onto the floor behind some racks

    anyone else almost faint from caffeine on an empty stomach? like strong caffeine like espresso

  6. I was walking up a flight of stairs with a friend when I passed out. Super embarrassing and emotional but I’d probably hurt myself really bad if she wasn’t there

  7. Walking home! A bit embarrassing as it was in public and I started feeling very dizzy. Everyone probably thought I was intoxicated oops.

  11. Apart from standing up after a hot bath, my main one is getting off my bed from lying down to standing. I don't think I actually pass out - or if I do it's for up to maybe three seconds, and I don't fall over if I grab a wall or door handle. But I get quite dizzy quite often doing that.

    I have chronic pain and sit as little as possible, and on my own at home I'm usually lying on my bed, so it happens more than you'd think.

    Interestingly I *didn't* nearly pass out in first Pilates class this week, when we went from lying down to standing. Phew. It wouldn't have looked good in my first class!

  12. Probably so. It’s very annoying and nothing really helps.

  14. I get faint from low blood pressure and I don't help things when I'm being an idiot by restricting. I've had to pop a squat in a lot of random places, but it's like, fuck, who cares? I'm not trying to get a concussion by falling. I've full-on passed out at the doctor's office twice -- I think a combination of my usual shit and anxiety. The second time was funny because a nurse saw it happening and she frickin teleported a good twenty feet to tackle me down like a linebacker and I came to with my head between my knees.

    It usually comes on gradually and gives me time to lie down, so it's been a while since I've actually fallen. Most recently I was already lying down and I started to feel sick (cotton in my ears, vision tunneling) and I was all wtf do I do now? But it passed after a few minutes with my feet elevated.

  16. when I was about 18 I passed out in a huge manhattan post office. I had been fasting and this was before I knew enough to keep snacks / water on me at all times. I fainted and came to on the steps and an absolutely angelic being, an older woman, was giving me gatorade. Bless her

  17. Got very close to passing out when getting my first tattoo. Hadn’t eaten all day but it was so embarrassing. My best friend was there and she brings it up to my other friends all the time.

  19. I've never actually passed out, but I once nearly fell of the stage during a show rehearsal because I stood up and turned around too fast.
