Grand Rapids Comic-Con 2015 (also known as the time I almost fell off a TaunTaun as Daenerys and flashed everyone), served an important purpose as the third con I've been to, and first I've cosplayed at.
When I was laying in that hospital bed, in those absolutely flattering hospital gowns, I was starving and frequently wondered how I was going to get the glue off.
On Monday, July 27 I went to emergency room for what I hoped was a case of me finally getting superpowers. They hooked me up to an EKG, and monitored my heart using pads with really sticky glue. I didn’t get all glue off my skin until a few days after.
The reason for my trip is an extremely wimpy one. I was having heart palpitations, chest pain, and dizziness for five days in a row. (The palpitations aren’t wimpy, but the dizziness is.)
Heart palpitations are when it feels like your heart is beating too fast, too slow, like it’s skipping a beat, or it’s fluttering. Basically, they feel like your heart is starting to beat in your throat, it feels weird to breathe, and you can hear it in your ears. I think mine skips a beat.
