Riding In Ambulances

This week has been crazy.  I had my first trip in an Ambulance, I went to work on Wednesday morning and all was fine. By about 10am I was dizzy, sweating, my hands were shaking and I pretty much felt like I was drunk. I was stumbling around and making a complete ass out of myself. A Ambulance was called and I found out that I had very low blood sugar levels which is something I have never had before. It scared the living day lights out of me and I am still waiting for my test results to see if there is anything else going on with me. I had the rest of the week off and I had a bit of a movie marathon, here are my reviews.
 The Dallas Buyers Club 9/10
The acting, the story, everything about this movie is brilliant. It's about a HIV diagnosed man who goes to great lengths to survive and help others when the hospitals, governments and pharmaceutical companies can't.
 Maleficent 7/10
Maleficent is the other side of the story of Sleeping Beauty. If your a fairy tale lover like myself, you will love this. The movie is about what happens when your Prince Charming ends up being a total pig. It's Maleficent's journey from getting over  hatred and physical trauma to finding ones self and  falling in love in the most unexpected way.

 Philomena 9/10
Judi Dench's character Philomena is a woman who falls pregnant out of wedlock and is put in a Catholic home for girls. Her son is adopted out to rich Americans and the movie is about her trying to find him 50 years later. Judi Dench is amazing and I loved her character Philomena. Philomena is a lot stronger than I would be. At the end of the movie she forgives the Nun's that have betrayed her, not something I think I would have been able to do for quite some time.
