When I fainted

I have fainted just once, and even today I'm still surprised and disturbed by it.

I was living in Sweden with Jonas, probably 1998ish, and I had just finished taking a shower. I wrapped a towel around me, and the next thing I remember was hitting my head on the floor. Jonas had heard a thump and had come immediately into the bathroom to investigate, and I resumed consciousness pretty quickly. Looking back, I don't remember that the water had been unusually warm or anything, so I'm still not totally certain why I fainted.

The most unsettling aspect of the experience was remembering when I hit my head. I think it was the impact that brought me back to consciousness, but I had this eerie "memory" that I had been banging my head on the floor multiple times. Jonas assured me that there was just the one impact, but even to this day I have a hard time shaking the feeling that I was intentionally, although unconsciously, hitting my head on the floor of the shower.

Have you fainted?

Tunnel vision a few times, knocked out once (long story), but no fainting. Yours could have been a combination of blood pressure, water temp, and sudden movement. Especially if you did that thing women do where they bend over, wrap a towel around their hair, and then stand back up.
