Karmel Allison, who was present in the Rose Garden, at the White House, for President Obama’s speech on Obamacare, almost fainted during the long discourse.
Although some sources are naming Jessica Ulgade as the fainting woman, it has been confirmed that Karmel is the one Obama assisted.
Karmel, who is married to David Allison is a diabetic and she is also pregnant. Towards the end of the speech, she began to feel faint. Obama turned around and put his arm around Karmel to steady her. “I got you. You’re ok,” the president told her. She was then escorted away for medical assistance.”That’s what happens when I talk to long,” said Obama.
Karmel Allison is a contributor to the online magazine “A Sweet Life” which was created to raise awareness of diabetes and for diabetics. She lives in San Diego, California with her husband. She is bilingual, speaking fluent Spanish.
Karmel is doing fine now. She later tweeted to her friends “I’m ok world- just got a little lightheaded.Thanks, @BarackObama for catching me! And good thing this pregnant diabetic is pregnant.”
Well Karmel we really do hope you’re doing well, and that you and your husband have a beautiful healthy baby!
