Drained

This is what it feels like a lot of times for me, especially when I stand up from sitting…all of my energy drains out of me and for a moment the world seems off balance and I am dizzy and shaken.  Color fades and it feels as if my heart and my brain are imploding, being sucked down into pressure and pain.
It only lasts a few seconds but it feels like minutes and even though the drs say it is nothing to worry about, that it is related to my body/brain having to relearn how to distribute my blood pressure to my smaller body it is terrifying because of the very real risk of falling and possibly damaging my new knees and because 1 time out of 10 it has the lasting effect of wiping me out and leaving me with a headache
