I felt like prisoner in my own home last night. As I went from room to room to find some kind of coolness, I looked at my thermostat and it was a balmy 85 degrees in the house, yes it was 18 degrees cooler than my thermostat outside but SHIT! I couldn't get comfortable, I felt dizzy, almost threw up a couple of times and my whole body hurt. Jay felt me and said I was burning up. Duh ! Yeah ! It's freaking hot! Every joint in my body hurt but I wasn't sweating and I just didn't feel right. So I took my temperature and it was 102.6. Well no wonder. I actually had a fever. So I took a Xanax, two 500 Mg. Tylenol and rubbed my body down with Biofreeze and ran cool water over my wrists for awhile. I started to feel better and the house dropped down to 83 degrees! Woohoo! My Mom is bringing over a portable air conditioner we bought her years ago because it wouldn't work with her well water, hopefully we can get it cleaned out and running because this is BULLSHIT! I am not usually picky but add hot flashes in the mix and it is not pretty. Not pretty at all.
Someone told me to put a bucket of ice water behind my fan and it helps, so I did. It is a bit cooler I think...or am I fantasizing? I hope it is working.......I don't want to be one of those elderly people who die in the heat. I'm not ready.
