You know when you rub your eyes really hard and you start to see flowing colors and swirls and shimmers? That is starting to happen to me except it's all the time. When i look around it's like everything is shimmering or vibrating and if i stare hard at something (for example, the whiteboard at school) colors start to swirl. A knew occurrence which happened to me this morning however, and that's what made me write this post. I woke up this morning and got out my phone and checked my email and Instagram. I was awake for like a half hour before i got up to use the bathroom. When i stood up little black dots came into my vision and as I kept walking the dots got bigger until i couldn't see and i felt like i was falling. I grabbed onto the dining room table to steady myself but my whole body kept tingling, I couldn't see, and I couldn't tell which way was up (if that makes sense). After a minute or two my vision came back and slowly my other senses did too and i continued to the bathroom. My memory of this occurrence feels like a dream and it freaks me out! This has never happened before!
