I married my college sweetheart in 2003, and we agreed we would wait five years before trying to get pregnant. I had always dreamed of being a mom and was so excited to see our family grow.
In 2005 I started developing dizzy spells and brief moments of darkness. I would be in the middle of a normal conversation when all of a sudden things would go dark. I could still hear the person talking and could carry on the conversation, but I would lose my vision and feel my body going limp. I quickly learned if I placed my hand on a nearby desk, counter or wall, I could hold myself up until the moment passed and I regained my vision.
