That Time I Fainted
We had just returned from lunch and were sitting in our desks working on meaningless busy work... Suddenly I felt an immediate need to wash my hands. I didn't know why and thought it was odd, but I couldn't sit there. I had to get up and wash my hands. I got up - did not ask the teacher but told him, "I'm going to the bathroom." He gave me a concerned look and said okay. I think I startled him by abruptly getting up and not asking - just leaving (not typical Erika). I went to the bathroom, which was right across the hall, and washed my hands. As I dried my hands I noticed that weird feeling hadn't gone away. I thought I had better get up to the nurses office. I walked out of the bathroom and the hall teacher asked me if I needed help. Thinking I was fine I said "No, I'm good." shortly after I said that I realized I was leaning against the wall as I walked. I suddenly noticed my feet weighed a ton. The next tthing I know I was sitting on the floor in front of a random classrooms door. A wheelchair was brought to me and I was whisked away to the nurses office.
