Flu season has been taking our are of the country by force. It seems like almost everyone I know has had it once if not twice in just a short period of time. I’ve really tried my best to stay away from any type of social settings that are likely to carry a ton of germs. But, honestly, it’s genuinely difficult to do so, when you still have to go to the basic errands of everyday life like the grocery store once a week as well as the gym every day for ironically, my health. I was taking all the necessary precautions that was suggested on the news to avoid getting sick. However, just a few weeks ago it genuinely hit me hard when I least expect it. I was hauled up in bed for a week straight not able to much of anything but sleep! My partner even had to take off work to take care of me for a few nights, it got so bad. I woke up one day as well as felt so overheated and raw, but then in the same hour was also freezing at the same time. My partner turned our temperature control to heat up our room, then switched it way up as well as piled the blankets on top of me to keep me comfortable. She even found some small oil gas furnaces that she had in storage and placed throughout our room. I felt fairly hot and uncomfortable, although I needed to sweat out whatever was going on inside of me. I went through so many phases of the illness, from boiling as well as cold that we really wreaked havoc on our Heating, Ventilation, as well as A/C equipment with a run for its money! I was increasing from heat to air conditioning every couple of hours it seemed for a couple of days. Luckily, all of us had just had our Heating, Ventilation, as well as A/C equipment diagnosed and stripped. So, we really knew it was in perfect working order to be used well like this. Once I was feeling better, my partner was running around the home sanitizing everything he could possibly reach, especially the temperature control, since that is the one thing I was touching the most over the past week! He wanted to stay well!
