come on, this is normal. right?

Yesterday was a slow, foggy, and all-around gray day for me. P.I.D, no doubt.

I know that much isn't normal.

I had been sitting on the couch, feet up on the coffee table, laptop...on my lap, when it was time to get up for some reason that I still can't remember. I stood up while holding on to my computer. I made a motion to turn to the end table, in order to sit put my laptop on it.

Something didn't feel right.

I remember it feeling like I was in a slow-motion video: me trying to set the computer down, so that it didn't fall off the table, or knock over the glass of water that was also on the table. I didn't utter a sound.

Something didn't feel right.

I was WAY out of sorts. My left leg was crumpling below me. And just like that, I was lying on the floor.

Analyze away. I did. I got up slowly, and walked away. Not a tingle. Not a prickly. My leg felt hollow.

Ten minutes later, I did what all people do...I performed neurological tests on myself. Don't YOU do that ? It's normal. Right?

Walk heel to toe. Heel to toe. Heel to toe. Heel to toe.

Walk on tiptoes. Tiptoe. Tiptoe. Tiptoe.

Arms outstretched, like a bird, eyes closed, and touch your right index finger to your nose.

All clear.
