139. I had to be hospitalized for morning sickness.

 

My platoon sgt sent me in after sick call booted me out several times. The final straw was having an inspection called. Iwas prepared for it, but after a week or two of not eating I was too weak to stand for any length of time. So I did what in my mind made sense. We were all in formation and everyone else was standing upright at attention. I did the best I could to be in the at-attention pose, except I was flat on my back. The guy asked what was going on and I told him to go ahead and inspect me, I was ready, I just didn't have it in me to stand up for it. It's hilarious to me now, but at the time I didn't see why this would be a problem; he could still see me fine.

He had two people cart me off to ER, my lower number in my blood pressure was 53. I had lost a little over 20 pounds in about 2 weeks at that point, my face had gone numb, I was passing out more and more frequently - including once when I was halfway across an intersection. I was in the army hospital for a few weeks on an IV til they could get me functioning.

Anyway. Long story short - women's health problems are health problems.
