I forgot to tell ya'll...I got dehydrated at church camp...
I ran that morning & when I came back I started feeling sick at my stomach & my head hurt sooo bad!!
I eventually threw up...blueberries & bran...yep...that's gross!!
(I still worry about the poor camper who was fixing her hair while I was kissin the porcelain god... I warned her to get out while she could)
I laid in my bunk all morning & felt worse than I have ever felt in my life. The camp nurse came in and told me to go to the ER. I could barely open my eyes & I couldn't eat or drink because I was nauseated.
(the nurse told me I might have bleeding on my brain...HUH...Um...NICE!!)
Now...if I go to the ER, it's a $200 copay people!! So I have to be really dying to do that!
(which I almost did go)
Matt was about to jump in the car & drive 2 hours to get me.
(my knight & shining armor)
My sweet friend Heather drove me to my sister's house in Joplin. I pretty much passed out in the van seat. I was trying my hardest not to puke in the van. I made it. She said I threw my shoes & blanket on the driveway (which she picked up) and headed straight into the house.
(funny now...not then)
I was gonna give it 2 more hours before I went to the ER...I seriously have never in my life had a headache like that. I could barely talk...the light was killing me. I get them pretty much every other day....but none like this. I have never thrown up because of one.
Just so happens that Heather's brother is an EMT. (God provided) She called him and he told her I was dehydrated and might have heat exhaustion. He said to give me 2 benadryls & 3 Ibuprofens and drink water. I was like WHAT? I will not wake up for days!!!
I choked down the pills...
I kid you not people...within ONE hour I was up..eating a PB & J sandwich & felt better.
CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT????
So if you are ever dehydrated...or sick at your stomach take Benadryl. I guess your body releases antihistamine & the Benadryl helps!!
Now...I have to tell you...since then I have experienced this again. I am not sure what's going on. I am drinking LOTS of water.
God always amazes me how he provides for me with help when I need it!
Have you ever been dehydrated???
