My laptop died . . . a lovely Thinkpad , , , and now I have to use one of these little things witha little keypad . . . curses

(No imbibing, just getting over a nasty bout of dengue and a cold VB is far from my mind)

That dengue stuff is bad news. You remember what happened to kookie & neo a couple of years ago! Were you hospitalized? Didn't pick it up in Cambodia did you?
Life isn't about avoiding the bruises. It's about collecting the scars to prove we showed up for it!

Yes I do remember Kookie and Neo going through it . . . it really is nasty.

Fevers, headaches, body aches . . . sweating like mad, freezing like you're in the Arctic, your hands turn to claws, can't walk as every joint hurts.

We live in a three-story house and it took me close to 10 minutes to get from the third floor to the bottom . . . no point, really.

Fatigue . . . and you have to drink 8 litres of liquids a day . . . and are supposed to rest but you can't rest because you're constantly crawling to the toilet to urinate.

It is simply awful . . . when your red blood cells start exploding and you look like a pincushion.

Ah, the joys

Let your capable better half take care of you. Don't try to push it as you can actually make it worse. My BiL here also had it around 5 years ago and it hospitalized him for a little over a week. Take care.

Oh, if you are a little more caustic than usual around here, I'll understand. :wink:

Hang in there V, at least now your immune system will build up resistance to further attacks :wink:

My Dad had dengue a couple of years back, poor fella was hospitalised for 2+ weeks!!

Maybe I should abort visiting Palawan aka mozzie haven...I might end up returning with more than the odd bite or two :???:

Did someone call me a clueless prat?

That's not nice.

But I associate "prat" with the young. It is not bad at all then for a 40's guy being called that, instead of "uncle".
I work to live and not live to work.
