What the crud?

All week, and actually for the last month, I have had some sort of increasing bleaghy thing which has kept me without energy to leave the house, for longer and longer after I wake up. It doesn't stop me from working if I have the PC at home (which I don't today because I just had a 'refresh' and it wasn't working right).

So today, after yelling at myself for about two hours, I managed to get outside and into the car. The sun is shining very very brightly and it physically hurt. I mean, not vampire-blistering, but after a minute or two the brightness made me nauseous, and quite dizzy.

I called in and apologized that I had to return home, and that I would try to return tonight when the blindingly bright thing was gone.

This is really really weird. When I got in the door, out of the brightness, it was like a cold compress to the forehead.

that can be a sign of all sorts of unpleasant things (the first to come to mind, from personal experience, is diabetes, but there's others.)

regardless, it's Not Good. please see if you can get to a doctor?

Oh, I know I'm diabetic, and my blood sugars aren't doing more or less badly lately. I'm also narcoleptic, so I don't necessarily recognize fatigue as a result of illness.

There's some sort of flu bug going around, but I haven't been having the symptoms the other guys at work have had, except for feeling crummy and being a lot more sore than usual.

So if this isn't better tomorrow, yeah, doctor.

Get thee to a doctor, and get checked for Eppstein-Barr.
