So yesterday evening I blacked out in the shower, which has never happened before. It was very weird—I just started feeling very dizzy and light-headed out of nowhere. I tried to lean against the wall, but that didn’t help, so I sat down, and then came to under the spray a few minutes later, still incredibly dizzy and disoriented, and also in pain.

I don’t know how I managed it, because I definitely sat down before I actually passed out, but when I came to my butt and lower back were sore and I had a scrape on one of my butt cheeks, and I appear to have sprained multiple toes on my right foot—it hurts a lot and even after nearly 24 hours of mostly staying off my feet I can’t walk without seriously limping and moving very slowly. My poor dogs are confused and deeply displeased that I keep moving us at snail’s pace on walks.

I have no fucking idea what happened, and I’m kind of freaked out. I didn’t eat most of the day yesterday, and I felt lousy, but that’s pretty much par for the course. Shortly before I showered I ate McDonald’s, which I usually avoid because it makes me feel shitty, but I didn’t have anything in the house I could make without doing dishes and McDonald’s is the closest, cheapest option. I also smoked a little pot, because I was feeling nauseous and getting stoned is sometimes the only way I can manage to get food down. But I’ve definitely eaten McDonald’s and smoked pot from this batch together before, and I never had a reaction anything like this.

Has anyone one had anything like this happen before? Or know how long sprained toes last? I was having enough trouble getting shit done when I was mobile!
