- Wedding: June 2014
I just wanted to talk about this somewhere, and here seemed like a good place. Just so you know, ultimately this is a happy story.
Last Tuesday I went to a concert in Tahoe, and I got dangerously dehydrated. I got woozy, but kept on telling myself I could wait until the end to relieve myself and get some water. And then I fell over. Oops, but it happens, right? Well the rest of the scary part is pretty much a blur, but as my fiancé and an angel who said he was a nurse helped me out of the crowd, I did my best to put one foot in front of the other. I fell a few more times. Once, realizing I was on the ground and had no recollection of falling, my eyes bulged in fear. My fiancé tells me that was great to see, because for a second I had blacked out, unresponsive, and that expression on my face meant I was here, and aware. After a couple of minutes that felt like an hour we were out of the dense crowd, and thanks in large part to my Future Brother-In-Law I was able to avoid going to the hospital, and get all I needed: fresh air, a chair, and lots and lots of water. Once I got those things out of the way I was able to star crying uncontrollably for ruining other peoples’ concert experience, though I was only really a major distraction for two songs. I was also worrying about my fiancé’s stuff, that he had left in the middle of everything, but it was all fine, all that was lost was a good but old hoodie.
The whole experience was probably more traumatizing for my fiancé than it was for me, because he was so scared of losing me. I was wearing the dragon ring he proposed with, and knowing I had that bit of him there was really helpful. He wished he had the same. So the next day, when we walked by a craft fair, he found a ring he really liked for $70 and bought it. So now he has an engagement ring of his own 🙂 It’s a little weird to explain to others since we don’t want to tell everyone what happened to me, but with our wedding over ten months away it helps us feel more committed to eachother than ever before, making it easier to wait for our piece of paper until the day of the giant party. 🙂
