I came very close to fainting last night. I don't know what's going on. Kate and I were at Benny's, watching our usual Battlestar Galactica/Big Bang Theory/How I Met Your Mother combo, and when it was time to leave we stood around talking for a little while, and suddenly I started to see spots in front of my eyes and I felt like I was going to pass out. I sat down for a while, and I felt a little better, but still shaky, and I went home and curled up on the couch with some tea.

I still feel weird this morning. It could be any number of things, I guess. The new medication, my usual tendency towards low blood pressure and iron deficiency, or even anxiety from all the homework I have to do. I've felt faint before, it's just never been that... random, I guess. Usually I feel faint when I'm exerting myself or changing levels a lot (like all the bending down and standing up I do at work) or when I haven't eaten in awhile, not just suddenly out of the blue like that.

I called my shrink and told her what happened, and she said she wasn't allowed to give me medical advice, but that I could call the emergency room. I didn't do that, because I thought they probably have better things to do. "You... almost fainted? Stop the presses!"

Anyway I took an iron pill this morning... we'll see how it goes.

P.S. Check out this amazing photo of the Antony and the Johnsons concert. Duncan and I are in the middle section, all the way to the right of the first full row from the bottom you can see. Hi, us! And here's a photo of Antony in action.
