Mystery Illness

It seems I'm sick. Got a moderately high fever, which hovers around 102 or so. Nothing to rush to the hospital over, but uncomfortable. I ache everywhere, and I've got the chills and fatigue. No appetite, but the food stays down fine if I force it. No respiratory symptoms at all.

So I have nooooo idea what it could be. Weird.

Am thinking of reading some Lovecraft. Any other suggestions for ways to have fun with semi-delerious brain?

Dad told me once to keep busy while resting. Videos are a great way to keep yourself entertained. Work on some kind of project--maybe hand sewing or beading. Internet is good too, if you can stand it while being sick. Be sure to drink tons of water and juice. That is the way to break up a fever. Rest with a cool compress too. Sleep as much as you can-not so much that you end up staying up all night. Junk Food (no ice cream) always helps too.

Blaming the cats or ex boyfriends always helps too.
Also I heard that eating an onion sandwich shortens the length of the virus so if your stomach can stand it, Try it.

Email me if you have any other ?'s. Here is a hot lemonade recipe:

Hot Lemonade Recipe

Juice several lemons, then scrub the peel well, slice it thinly, and add to the juice. Cover all with plenty of boiling water, cover, and steep until cool. For added benefit, add several slices of ginger root before covering with water. Strain off the liquid, add honey and additional water to taste; drink hot. The lemon fights infection, cools the body, and cuts mucus, the honey provides nourishment and antibacterial action, and the ginger will settle your stomach and help you sweat out a fever.

Aw. Thanks for all the great suggestions, MG! I'm actually starting to feel better today. I used Dad's patented Goldsmith Sleeping Cure. I just stayed horizontal for almsot 36 hours, and now the fever's gone. Hurray. It was kinda interesting while it lasted (things which normally wouldn't be funny seemed very funny indeed) but I'm glad it's over.
