Wow… So…. It was hot. Sunday sucked but Monday (yesterday) was even worse. It was over 80 degrees by 8am and by 10am we were already over 100; we actually held steady at 113 for most the day! I had my portable A/C running, the house A/C and my giant fan but still it was about 80 degrees in my room! The rest of the house was horrible so forget trying to go downstairs and cook! I did bust out my cooling vest for the first time in years and I will say it helped the “keep Matt cool” effort.
I ended up building (basically) a blanket fort (like kids do) around my portable A/C and then just lying there on the floor for a few hours because it was just so bad! But at least the power did not go out which I was really expecting since everyone usually blasts their A/C on the first heat wave and then… rolling brown outs.
So I would say I survived but what was the cost to my health? Well I definitely “feel it”. I woke up today and I felt like I had noodles for limbs; everything felt weak and ataxic. I feel really dizzy and my oscillopsia is acting up worse than usual which was already bad. I feel like I really need to get up and walk around because I have just been sitting here at my desk but it’s too hot to leave my room so I feel like my body is just shriveling up! The fatigue was horrible yesterday, I would actually say I felt lethargic, and that is nowhere near as bad today but I still feel really “hung over”. I feel slow… physically and mentally.
I don’t remember it being like this last year, such a struggle, so what the heck? Either it’s hotter (no) or my body is just more sensitive… my money is on that one.
