I woke up pretty late today, around 11am. I really didn't feel like getting up at all because I was still really tired.
I was woken up by a ringing house phone that I ignored, then a cell phone with my husband on the other end. Then my mom coming downstairs to get the laundry and reminding me that we were going out today. (I live in my parents basement apartment.)
"Ok, Ok... I am getting up" I tell her.
I took in a big yawn and stretch of the arms. Then I actually got up out of my bed. I felt weird but I just thought it was because I got out of the bed too quickly. I tried to lick my lips together, but I had no saliva in my mouth - it was like the Mojave desert in there.
I went to the bathroom to wash up because now my mom was getting antsy and rushing me. Don't you just love getting up like that?
Anyway, I started to feel a bit nauseated after about 20 minutes. I know these symptoms all too well.
