By about 3:30, I pass out a few times in my chair. After a few episodes of this, I decide to take an emergency nap. Standing at this point becomes hard, but I lock my office door, and take a 10-minute nap. I wake up, feeling not refreshed, but certainly less dizzy. I walk around for a bit.
About 4:00pm, I start to break out in a cold sweat, and my legs turn to rubber. I have a coworker drive me home, and I go right to bed. I would have slept soundly, but the phone kept ringing, and Christine has some serious work crisis going on. Dogs are barking a lot. I drift in and out of consciousness, and don't remember a lot of last night at all.
I did get up, very sick with a throbbing headache, at around 2:00am, but that was for an hour. I vaguely remember going through e-mail. When I got up to go to work at 6:00am, I felt very tired again. Christine is in Baltimore, so I decided not to risk passing out at work again, like say when I was standing.
All I know is I am exhausted, get cold chills, and can't eat anything without feeling a lot of discomfort. I haven't the slightest idea what's wrong with me. I have no fever, but I do have sinus pressure. Maybe I just need a day of rest or something, but now I worry a lot: Why before Katsucon? Why can't this happen next week? Dammit...!
Slow down, you move too fast...
You've got to make the morning last...
Just falling down on the cobblestones,
Looking for sleep and feeling woozy....
Ba da da da da da da, feeling woozy.... [thud]
