    Ten people. I’ve been working here for four months and I only know the names of ten people. Out of every person in the Hamill City Police Department I can only muster up enough brainpower to keep ten names in my head. I can’t blame myself though, I was only supposed to be here a month before I went back to my home in New York, where being a detective doesn’t mean doing crossword puzzles to look busy all day. I came down here four months ago to help with a case, everyone was out of ideas and the pressure was rising, so they asked for a new set of eyes and got me. When the other detectives saw me the disappointment was obvious, it was clear I wasn’t going to fit in here. At first the annoyance at the fact that I was a small, unintimidating woman didn’t bother me, I was only going to be here for one case, right? Wrong. After I help them solve the first case I received news that I was, “too valuable of an asset to be let go,” in other words, I’m stuck here and now the job I used to love is one I hate. “Wilson! Are you with me?” someone said, snapping their fingers. I picked up my head and looked at them man standing in front of my desk, it was um… Noah… something with an “F” “Huh… oh, I wasn’t sleeping, just- uh… Examining my shoes!” I said picking up my foot to show off my dirty sneakers. Crap! I forgot I was wearing those. I put my foot under the desk and tried to sit up a little. “Yeah, I’m sure you were. Anyway, we got a call about a body found in someone’s back yard, some…

    August tenth of 2013, is the last day I remember. For the next hundred or so days after the aforementioned one, I don’t have a clue as to how they happened. The hardest part was, perhaps, my crumbling again, anxiety like I’d never had before. But not on August tenth. The first day of a new team and the last day of supposed sanity, I distinctly remember being afraid to be left alone with the then strangers. That had become the norm for me. Eighth grade. At this time I was moving forward, slowly…

    Hello, Khalia. It sounds to me like the food poisoning caused severe and rapid fluid loss from vomiting and/or diarrhea, which led to the "neurocardiogenic syncope."

These are also called "pre-syncopal" symptoms. You mention the Holter Monitor had showed a abnormally fast heart beat (tachycardia). How fast was it? Did…
