    it was 100 degrees and i was trying to take pictures of dancers at a festival.
    when i felt bad i tried to get some tea or lemonade but there were a lot of people and i could not get the women to recognize that i had a problem.
    after i fell the cops took me to the paramedics who gave me some water.

    WTH is wrong with you?



    Brother, please refrain from doing anything crazy like that again. You and I both know it was too hot for you to be anywhere but under the AC.:nono::nono: You could die from dehydration and heatstroke. then I would have to kill you.:haha: But I just thank the most high Afrikan that you are ok.:wave::wave:

    I was RECENTLY diagnosed with something called Athalocemia trait....(I STILL do not know exactly what it is, other than somewhat of a blood deficiency) I really do not know if that is ever relevant(smh) but when i was younger....elementary I passed out twice
    One time I think it was reletively hot....and I felt sick.....I tole the Principal and he said to get something to eat....when I went back to the line I toook the stopping step and almost laid out. The Principal cought me mid fall I believe....I was in the hospital for some time and it was never found why....I do not believe it was solely the heat.....
    Then a few years(if one year) later I when to the CBS building on a trip with mr Grandmothers Job
    I was Jumping all Around, Hopping Skipping, Acting all Crazy

    *Blank*

    Next thing I know I am In the Arms of a co-worker and he is telling me not to close my eyes(I did of course, I felt sleepy)

    And One other Time....Now this Time...I was either 12 going on 13 or I turned 13 already(Close in range)
    I went Rollerblading with my Cousin(I was visiting Florida)
    Now it was not hot....It was Fire.
    I was okay until the laaaasssssst 500 meters or so
    All of a sudden I could not go any further...
    My cousin left me, I felt like it was over right there....
    I managed to get to a tall bush,
    and I sat there for about 2 minutes and just breathed, I knew I had to get to the house so I got up( and If you can Limp on rollerblades then That's what i was doing!) and when I got to the house....I felt better....had some water.....felt better......I just rested and It was much better. I some other reservations about that particular one.....but I have a history of this fainting thing, I have not done it since but was it the blood disorder? Once it could have been the heat...
    A combination of the Two?
    IDK(I think this may have been a ramble)
    I hope you are well brother James:)
    I'm witcha!
