No one fainted the first time I read the short story, 'Guts'. This was on a Tuesday night, in the writers workshop where my friends and I have shared our work since Each week, I would read another of the short stories I planned to include in a novel to be called Haunted.
Have you noticed your gums bleeding when you brush your teeth? It could be pregnancy gingivitis. Hormones can make your teeth more vulnerable to plaque, leaving you with swollen, bleeding gums.
U p to one in 10 people will experience vertigo, dizziness or unsteadiness in any given year. In the vast majority of cases, the symptoms are unpleasant but harmless, and get better without treatment. It can be a lightheaded feeling, like you are going to faint, which is more likely to be a cardiovascular or breathing pattern problem. Or you may feel unsteady on your feet.
When my son was two-and-a-half, he passed out for about five full minutes while taking a bath and yes, this is another reason to always, always supervise your kids while they bathe. A few seconds after, I added some cold water to the bath, at which time my son proceeded to turn ghost-white, lose all color in his lips, and fall limp into my arms. I did exactly what you are not supposed to do in situations like this: I freaked the fuck out.
It is with some trepidation that we offer a few tentative observations concerning the association between sexual activity and vertigo. To our knowledge, the world literature has remained completely mute on this question. For students -- a good topic for research?

It's not just for sappy songs - love can make you crazy, yes really. A new study by Syracuse University found it only takes a fifth of a second to fall in love and it's science that secures it, thanks to a release of chemicals in the brain that produces a euphoric high. And not just that, research by the British Psychological Society who examined numerous brain scans, found that the brain 'in a state of love' and the brain in 'a state of mental illness' show a 'considerable overlap'. Beware of the green-eyed monster, we all know his curse!
We respect your privacy. Fainting, also called passing out, can be frightening. An estimated one in three people will faint at some point in their lives.
Isabella Rotman drew a comic for The Nib about her life as a hemophobe someone who faints at the sight of blood. Had the oven been on, I would have suffered some pretty drastic burns. After fainting a couple of times in high school, a doctor chalked it up to low blood pressure — I am the chillest mofo you know, blood pressure-wise — and urged me not to stand up too quickly after lying down.
