I am so tired of my fainting spells dictatong where I can go. it's ruining my life. I wish I could explain the fear. like it was so hard going to my kids school functions. I'd have a cold rag, a fan, a cold drink, etc and still about pass out. I wish there was a cause. docs have checked everything. now I've built up an anxiety over it too so now when my overanalyzer kicks in I can actually trigger. fml. as if I didn't have enough issues already. someone please kill me. dead serious. if I wouldn't go straight to hell I'd already have done it.

      It's not fainting in the sun. It's vasovagal Syncope. Fainting for no reason and no cure. As if 13yrs of rape and abuse weren't enough or murdering parents, crackhead grandma, raising myself, etc they got to throw in fainting spells now too?! No center can help me. Doomed since birth. I got this app for others to talk to or to see how others are dealing with it. Mental health centers have been awful to me and there no other ones near me so I'm screwed there too. I'm just hopeless. I got a lot going on right now that I can't even talk about bc of judgement so I'll never be ok. I'll always be alone. I am comfortable that way. I'm used to it. But I wish I didn't have to be. Like is just destined to be no good for certain people and I'm one of them. It's a miracle I'm alive

        @TheFemaleSmokey I feel your pain 100%. The first time I fainted was 6 years ago. Since then I've developed severe anxiety with going anywhere. I'm afraid to drive my car, I'm afraid to grocery shop, and recently I haven't been able to work, becauseIdon't know when ill have a fainting spell. Doctors can't give me a diagnosis, and the best advice I get is to drink more water and stand up slowly. Keep holding on, I'm here to talk.

          @mem0000 girl where have u been my whole life... No one else describes it like me like u just did. We should totally switch on infos soon. Maybe help each of other. Girl if I had to hear another water statement from somebody else who doesn't even know what it feels like I'm going to flip out I hear that same crap from everyone "drink more water you're probably not healthy". Ugh

      Have you considered going to a crisis center? I walked my self into one when I realized I couldn't see a better future for myself. I felt a little silly doing it because I wasn't out of control or in a current "crisis". But it changed my life! People at mental health places can help show different pathways for healing than regular doctors. Since your on this app, it means your looking for better healing. You can't say you've tried everything until your talked to a great mental health team. I feint in the sun too. I have to drink a packet of liquid IV (hydration powder) and run myself through a few mental routines before I go out. But I've also learned to do more in mornings and evenings. I alway let someone around me know what's going on whenever I have to be outside during the day. It makes you ask the question... what could possible be a good reason for God to make my body this way?!?
