Anyone else have the 'flu?
Day three for me...if it is the 'flu, and I do not know what it is, might have been some food poisoning...had a couple 'iffy' restaurant meals over the week-end.
Extrordinary 'chills' and shaking and all round general global aches and pains...no fever though.
Spent a few hours today sleeping in my 'Arctic' Sleeping bag, fully clothed, wrapped like a 'Mummy' in a thermal-blanket, with the whole thing sealed snug around my neck, cinched up with the draw string, with an Ear-covering 'thick' Wool Knit Cap on, and a Towell rumpled around my neck, and ROASTED in there for four or five hours I guess, slept like-a-Baby in fact, but when I woke up I thought immediately "Jeeeeeeze, I bet I am pushing 106 or more in here, and might just be a good idea to give this ROASTING deal a breather...and I was "HOT" too, Hotter than the parted underfeathers of a Pigeon anyway ( and it felt SO goot to be WARM!!! ) ...and what's wierd, no perspiraiton, or none like there should have been! My layerd clothes, had next to no humidity at all. Just a little condensation on the underside of the sleeping Bag down by my Feet, and I checked, too.
I have done the same thing last three nights too...so, if it a Virus, maybe it is effecting my Hypothalmus, or, I dunno, but it is wierd.
I'll be okay-enough for a little while, then, if I have stood or sat still a moment, soon as I move an-inch, the shakes and super chills and MAJOR Big-Time aches start in, almost impossible to even walk when it gets like that.
Anyway, of the few people I know here, most of them have been sick with Lung-infection-problems, and Bronchial problems, or other wierd illness-problems, and not with whatever I have.
How 'bout you?
I hope everyone IS Healthy and keeping Warm..!
Rare for me to get a 'bug', but, can happen.
I keep thinking it was a Hamburger I had...and I doubt I have had four Hanburgers in the last seven or eight years, but I had a craving for one, went to an old time all night little Greasy Spoon dive around the corner, and have kept suspecting it did this to me!
Serves me right I guess...if it did...
