    So... last night around midnight I had a pretty close near death experience. I fainted once and had a seizure, then got up from my seat when my sister woke me up. then walked into the grass because i felt as if i had to puke, and before i knew it i fainted again and fell face first into the ground. after my sister woke me again they helped me to get back in the car and i fainted again halfway in the car. each time it happened i felt like i was just sleeping, but the last time i actually had some kind of dream.

    Anyways the results were basically i think something is wrong with my neck, because my sister told me she saw me shaking in the chair the first time BEFORE i hit the ground and suffered a concussion. So now my damn neck is WORSE and im freaked the fuck out. I fainted like this twice before (7-9 years ago) but i didnt fall or have a seizure. I'm almost positive that my neck injury on my birthday last year is the cause of the seizure but I can't say for sure yet.

    I figured I should let all my friends and family know now. I'm going for a follow up in a couple days to see if anything changes and also going to see a doctor for the seizures and hopefully put a stop to that.

    The doc from the accident said i was ok, and released me so im kinda pissed about this shit. I'm not sure what to do about that yet.

    Although my outlook right now sucks, I'm going to keep my head high and hope for the best. It could have been a lot worse and I'll never forget it. Gonna keep everyone posted

    And nah man, I wasnt drinking. I smoked a little weed, but hell i do that everyday.

    I know what made me faint initially though. I had just donated plasma about 7pm, then i guess i just didnt eat enough and also been a bit sleep deprived due to work... What sucked the worst is it just all came at me all of a sudden. and thanks, im gonna need some luck

    Donating plasma could have made you more vulnerable. A simple drop in blood pressure can cause a seizure. I have a friend who has had 2 seizures in his life. One was just like you described, he had donated blood, one time he had also been drinking. But both times, he had a seizure, fainted, and then had no pulse. Scary shit. We tried to wake him for about 30 seconds and were about to start CPR when he finally just woke up. He said its an issue with his blood pressure. He also got one hell of a hangover both times from it.

    heres a list of thing im leaving behind:

    plasma donation
    red bull
    junk food
    sleep deprivation
    dehydration

    i need to eat healthier anyways and I've known that for a while. I think I would have been fine had I eaten a damn cheeseburger instead of drinking that red bull.

    I'm telling you guys, I learned my lesson with energy drinks. I'm absolutely finished fucking with them now.

    I fee great though compared to this morning

    Yeah... I've been working hard as shit this last week, and it all caught up to me man. I'm trying to make money and get back on my feet so i actually have a chance to see my kid more and shit like this keeps happening! The thing that freaked me out most was I wanted to see my daughter. That's my main motivation always.
