10. I don't know about "humor"

3 years ago I fainted and bumped my head on my garage floor........
This put me in the hospital for 2 weeks (10 days in ICU). Then there was the PCS (post concussion syndrome) that lasted for months.
All & all it was a BIG BUMMER!

I wouldn't be surprised if she's suffering from exhaustion. She really looks tired and drawn in her latest pictures.

Mrs. Clinton is not looking well. I think the stress of the job she has is taking a huge toll on her.

Get well soon!!

34. She always has

She collapsed once while she was Senator at a meeting with constituents in Buffalo. She really throws herself into her work.

35. It certainly is...

I've answered to it for almost 10 years, here on DU, but it was actually the name of my beloved cat. I also had a wonderful dog named Sara, another Stevie Nicks song.

Welcome to DU, Bob Sacamano! It's great to have you with us!

She is like a cat in the dark
And then she is the darkness
She rules her life like a fine skylark
And when the sky is starless



Rhiannon

25. I hope the concussion isn't serious

I had a similar experience 2 years ago and was on restricted duty for a year due to post-concussion symptoms (dizziness, headaches, etc). It can take a long time to recover.

26. for what it is worth

I know many are unhappy with the whole secstate crap (though I will admit I hated Rice because of her hawkishness), but this does drive home that we need to give Hill a rest, even if, and especially if, she runs 2016.

32. I fully expect a 150% recovery and her being inugurated in Jan. 2017 and Jan. 2021.

 

the other candidates should not even bother.

BTW-the flu this year is bad, real bad...so everyone should always get their flu shots and pnemonia shots.

Age has nothing to do with this, a 20 year old can get dehydrated too.

Many tennis players and football players do.

Drink plenty of fluids and always have a little snack ready (even if just some crackers or some apples and oranges handy.

36. In all likelihood she has had a stroke

Announcing an illness and accident also likely puts her political future at grave risk. I can't imagine why she would fabricate it.

29. I hope that she's alright.

When I hear of head injuries I'm always reminded of Natasha Richardson. If she fainted and had a concussion, why wasn't she taken to a hospital for a CAT scan? The doctors may be monitoring her, but can they see through her skull? I hope that she's going to be OK.

Best wishes for a full recovery, Hillary.
