Not a great 24 hours Aug. 17th, 2005 07:45 pm
Heatstroke yesterday, shivering fit last night, disturbed sleep followed by throwing up this morning, headache, exhaustion and lack of appetite today. Going to work may have been overdoing it.

And yesterday morning was so promising...

You had heatstroke? And you kept on doing -anything-? Dude, that's like, potentialy fatal and shit. When soldiers get heat stroke we give them IV fluids and 24 hours bed rest. You need to rest and drink lots of fluids and you probably should have gone to the doctor yesterday.

Wish I'd known all this beforehand. "Do not give paracetamol" would have been particularly useful...

My god, you did really get heatstroke. I can't believe it! Please drink lots of rehydrating stuff and take special care of yourself.
