This IS NOT A GOOD TIME FOR A FEVER. ARRRRGH.
ETA: The worst part is, besides an apparently high fever, all I have is a tiny bit of throat scratch and a little bit of tiredness (not even THAT tired), both of which are completely expected after I spent the day getting out large dusty objects, beneath which resided dust bunnies from the dawn of time. I would have gone on with my day had Q not been shocked by the temperature of my skin and redness of my face.
I wonder if this started yesterday -- I felt extremely warm all day, not feverish, just hot. I know that I like things a little cooler than most, but usually people respond to my being uncomfortably hot by agreeing it's maybe a little warm, but not unpleasant, while yesterday the response was universally complete disagreement.
ETFA: I have no idea what this was. Within 2.5 hours, I was feeling noticeably better, I was less red, and my fever was down. Half an hour after that, I suddenly broke into a sweat, and have felt fine since then. What the FUCK causes a six-to-eight-hour fever?
