Ten years ago in Sydney, and a week away from a trip to Japan, I took the day off work as I had been having dizzy spells and difficulty standing up. Concerned, I went to see the doctor and quietly explained that I was about to travel and given the symptoms, I wanted a check up beforehand just to be sure.
He told me that the dizzy spells were probably just related to being over excited and overwhelmed about the trip and then sent me on my way. I had to hold on to furniture to support me on my way out the door. Perhaps he had watched Gone with the Wind too many times or perhaps it was just #MFIF
