As I was getting ready for work this morning, I began feeling dizzy and light-headed, like I was going to pass out. I looked in the mirror and saw that I was paler than usual, and my lips were so pale they were nearly colorless.
I stumbled over to my bed and laid down for a very short time (maybe two minutes) and I was fine.
The thing is, this has happened before. Very rarely-- I'm talking once or twice *a year*. And it always happens as I am getting ready for work in the morning. And I lay down for a bit and I'm fine.
Since it is so rare and always at the same time of day, I am thinking something I do behaviorally is prompting it, rather than there being some underlying medical condition. I'd like to know what I possibly did so I can stop doing it.
For the record, there is exactly 0% chance that I am pregnant.
