RIP my friend.....rp life....Hope you get better soon or see you on the other side.I got de bug mon.................
I can finally contribute some factual information concerning the Chink-A-Dung Floo as I am 99.99% certain that I am now infected.
First clue was last Sunday afternoon after a fruitless search for fresh citrus over on the California side of the river. All of the home based vendors were closed and locked up like there was some kind of deadly pandemic plague in effect. On the way home I had some particularly bad lung weezieness. I always carry one of those Salbutaol inhalers to clear my lungs due to the agricultural chemical dust, pollen, off-roading dust and polvo from my bead blaster. Usually two blasts clear my lungs completely.
By bedtime around midnight I was still hocking up a clear thin snotty liquid. At about four AM I woke in a death fit with no air in my lungs quite similar to a no air scuba incident. After two hours of comode hugging hacking and choking and nine blasts from the inhaler I finally gained a little lung space and made it thru the morning.
Monday night ended in the exact same scenario but I was a little more prepared and sat it out propped up in a sitting position and inhaler in hand.
Tuesday I sat it out upright then fell asleep only to wake up in a pool of hot sweat and freezing chills. First thing i thought was that I was having a malaria febrile episode.
Wednesday night an exact replay of the night before. Some other effects are pain in every joint, my whole rib cage is in pain and wracked by the coughing and hacking and incredible painful eye popping cramps.
Last night an instant replay of the night before.
When I'm upright and walking around I feel just fine.
Just my opinion here but just because you think you might have it there is no reason to surrender you body to the certain death of the cure at the hospital.
