1. I was trying to trim some wires on our wreath and the scissors slipped
  2. I now have a little triangle shaped cut on my left pointer finger, right in the fleshy part below the first knuckle.
  3. I immediately had to sit down on the floor and raise my hand over my head
  4. I have Vasovagal Syncope
    Which really just means that, when I feel pain, my brain shuts off my heart and I faint. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vasovagal_response
  5. I have been able to manage it on my own since high school, with just a few instances of fainting since I was diagnosed.
  6. My family, after making sure I'm okay, always think it's hilarious when I seem like I'm overreacting to a minor cut or scrape.
  7. Aunt Karen thought it was pretty funny, until it started to really bleed.
  8. My dog thought I was getting down on the floor to cuddle with him.
  9. I don't know why I'm sharing this.
  10. I guess I just want people to know that it's a thing.
  11. I'm okay, nothing a band-aid and some Vetericyn (that's horsey medicine) can't fix.
