you ever fainted and if so, what were the circumstances?
No. Felt like it a couple of times in a very hot or crowded environment...but never did.
Never fainted. Blacked out from nerves and hair dryer heat while mom was doing my hair for something once, but I didn't go down. Been knocked out a couple times. Had a few concussions. But never fainted.
No, I haven't. I came close at a renaissance fair when it was really hot and I'd been standing too long, and I came close after the first time I gave blood. But I've never actually passed out.
No, never have.
When I was 13 years old, I went with my girlfriend's family on vacation. We were in Canada and went to Madame Tucson (?) Wax Museum. While waiting to get tickets, the smells bothered my and I fainted. everyone said I was too scared to go in and that's why I fainted. But I just remember feeling strange and the smells.
I have never fainted before!
I've swooned before, but the only time I've really fainted was while playing that choaking game. Terrible I know, but I was 14. And I really don't recomend it. It's way too scary and too dangerous.
Nope. Come close, but I never passed out.
Only once. I was being a bridesmaid, in a satin dress, in a small stuffy church on a very hot day, and the heat overcame me.
Yes I did once. It was from the extreme pain brought on by childbirth. After 15 hours I sort of snapped, couldn't handle it any more and sort of checked out for a minute or two. I scared the crap out of everyone involved apparently.
I think so, but I don't really remember it. Doesn't matter much to me.
Picture it: I was going to my brothers first wedding, from college, and I was trying to dodge 3 ice storms. I had to stay at a hotel one night, and only ate pretzels for 3 days. When it came time for the rehearsal, I felt really weird and, after I did my part, I had to sit down, because it felt like the world was spining around.
Yeah, a couple of times. I'm anemic (iron deficient) and it made me faint a few times before I got to the doctors. It's no fun. Once I was in a karate grading and I fainted... it was horrible. I still passed though (*phew*).
No, felt like I was going to a couple of times, but never actually have.

I havent, but I almost did once, after I gave blood and immidately rushed to my job.
When I was a child and a teen, I fainted quite a bit. They were always a result from my constant nose bleeds.
I fainted in a Laundromat when I was 22 years old. I was three months pregnant at the time.
I've never fainted, but I've come close when I've been really sick.
I have fainted 3 times. Once was when I was 15 and I had a new boyfriend from Atlanta. In my sadness about him leaving I failed to remember to eat. My dad took me to church that Sunday and I fainted in the middle of mass. The second time I had knee surgery and fainted the first time out of the hospital bed. The third time I was Christmas time and my now husband was leaving to go to Halifax for a semester of college. I was hanging out with his family for the day and only ate christmas cookies and a crappy watery salad from Wendy's. On my flight back to Kansas City from Maine I sat on the very back of the plane next to the toilets. A guy my age was talking at me and I couldn't hear a word he said. Before I knew it I was in the aisle with an oxygen mask on my face. All the passengers were staring at me and several were exclaiming that they were nurses or doctors.
I've passed out, does that count?
yeah..it had something to do w/ one too many shots of tequila...
Several times...usually having to do with already being ill. However, one summer I was working in a snack bar of a local public pool. It was hot out and even hotter in the kitchen and I just bit it. I hit my head on a table on the way down and was out cold. Luckily nothing was hurt too bad...just a few bruises and a bump on my head! I won't be trying that again any time soon!!
I was on a water slide in Mexico with a friend of mine. The water pressure there isn't on par with the U.S., so we ended coming to a complete stop right in the middle. My friend straddled the edge of the slide and yelled for help while I tried to coax our styrofoam mat back into motion. While I wasn't looking, some big Mexican boys came down and knocked me right off my feet. I landed on my head and passed out for a few moments. The big kicker was afterwards, when I went to the "infirmary." It was hard to speak in my second language in the condition I was in, but I remember her telling me that I would have to go BUY some ice from a nearby vender. G-d bless America.
Almost, a few times. . .the time I came closest was after marching in the St. Patrick's Day parade in high school. . .As if the stupid uniform wasn't embarassing enough. .
I have just once. My wife has fainted over 27 times though
