Last two fainters I had ended up in the ER for stitches. Hospital floors are hard AF.

Baby #2, I recommend staying seated....

I was seated, I didn’t eat last night or this morning and that kinda screwed me I think. I’ve never fainted before, and boy it was a crazy experience.

I’ve been choked out a couple times but that wasn’t the same feeling.

But yea it was a rolly chair and I just fell out of it I guess 😂

Damn bro. Yeah, fainting really is an experience. I remember one time when I fainted two steps away from the couch I was laying on because I got up too fast. It's like, all my senses died out but my brain was still functioning for a moment after my sense of sight was consumed by flashy lights and it all went black, and in that moment my thoughts basically became reality because they were the only things I could experience while fainting. I stayed in that dream-like state for a bit and then woke up about 5 seconds later on the floor.

Apparently getting high today involves me going around and commenting paragraphs all over reddit

Edit: I forgot to mention waking up. I remember when I woke up, I saw my mother and brothers looking at me, but I had no idea who they were. Or who I was. Or where I was. I spent like 10 seconds just trying to sort out what was what before finally getting up and assuring them I was okay.

Edit 2: I’ve been informed that this might just be “blacking out” and not actually fainting. Also, thanks for the concern, but it hasn’t happened again in years. I’m a tall dude, that’s probably part of the reason why. I’ve had it happen quite a few times, and usually I’m able to prevent myself from passing out, but this one happened way quicker than I expected lol

That's how I usually comment. When high I get to around the second sentence and realize I don't have the attention span to type out the paragraph in my head.

I do that all the time and just end up deleting the comment

Closest I ever came was watching a buddy fight in a cage match.

I designed his intro song.

Everyone is cheering, we’re so goddamn pumped, and we proceed to watch him get the SHIT BEAT outta him.

I nearly passed out. The sudden disappointment actually rocked my brain. A strange experience.

Oof. Yeah, our visitors aren't allowed on rolly things. All our chairs are stable, and the wheely stool is for staff only.

You dads can't be trusted lol :D

I am terrified of doctors and hospitals. When my wife gave birth I very quickly sat down. It was hard to hold her hand (the rails and how low chair vs how high bed was) but I was barely holding on sitting down. My wife still teases me about it.

Before the birth we had to go to ER for dehydration (wife, not me, she had awful morning sickness). They started doing her up with IV, taking blood sMples.... I had a dim realization that I needed to sit, but by the time it came my "Brain to Body" communication had shut off already. I was slowly walking towards a chair where the doctor was standing (bedside, blocking chair). My wife looked at me, eyes narrowed, and said "Somebody needs to sit him down" and I remember going lights out. The doctor (bless her ) immediately turned and caught me.

Room full of women all thought it was hilarious.... My fear of hospitals hasn't diminished b
