I confess that both of us being in stress eating mode at the same time could be dangerous.

On the other hand, with her face filled back out a bit, she looks soooo cuuuuuuute! I know she's going to be frustrated about the weight regain eventually, but it is really hard to say anything right now!

In all seriousness, I hope the stress subsides job wise and you find a job that is a good fit. Keep us posted, beloved Master of Moderation and Dad to all of Dims.

Tonight I'm going to be on a podcast based around my hobby, and I confess I'm nervous as fuuuuuck. It's only small, barely anyone listens to it, it's just talking about nonsense... but it doesn't matter, I'm still crapping myself.

I've been super busy and every time I glance at Dims I really hope my fav authors and authoresses have written something tantalizing for me.

Totally a double standard, since I havn't written anything in six months, despite desperate drives to.

Write me sexay stuff, plzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz!

Although I am not seriously proposing myself as a model of sanity, this sounds like me in every project I've ever undertaken. So FWIW, at least you know there are two of us.

I confess that I learnt a lesson about not pushing myself on saturday.

Heatwave weather, physical labour at the farm, a poorly ventilated barn... you can all probably imagine what happened. I've never had heat stroke before and I had very little warning it was about to happen. Just suddenly throwing up everywhere, unable to see properly, unable to talk or think straight.... *shudders*

Take care of yourselves in the heat, friends.

Scary deal. Heat stroke can be very serious. I'm glad you're ok. Rest and get plenty of fluids as you recover and be cautious going forward as you will be more susceptible to them now that you've had one. Although a little on the pricey side, pedialyte is the best thing to drink when you need to stay hydrated plus water as well. Pro tip: You can do regular Gatorade as well, but put a pinch (or two depending on the size) of salt, preferably Himalayan or Kosher and not just plain table salt, in your Gatorade or even 2-3 times a day in your water. It will help your body absorb more of the liquid and give you better hydration.

Out of curiosity, how warm was the temperature there during the heatwave?

Yeah, the farm wanted me to come in the next morning and carry on working in even hotter weather but I told them to get lost, hah. The weather is actually hotter here than on the day I got heatstroke but I'm not doing physical labour or standing in a red-hot barn so I'm coping much better.

I wish I had something like that, I was just drinking water in the morning. And by the time I started throwing up there was no point the staff keep giving me stuff to drink (which was plain water anyway!) coz I just threw it all right back up again. That was probably the scariest thing to be honest, that I couldn't even get any fluids in because my stomach was just constantly heaving.

And this is going to sound extremely tame, but I think it was about 80-85 fahrenheit outside. But the barn has awful ventilation and was full of people and animals so it was much much hotter inside.

Glad you are safe, loops!

A trick we learned is that the blood vessels in your hands and feet are closer to rhe surface, meaning that if you stand in or soak your hands for 10 min in cold water it quickly and safely lowers your core temp.

Also icecubes in the boobs work, in a pinch lol

Tame for my standards for sure due to where I live, but to where you live and what you are acclimated to that is pretty doggone high!

Now that you know, just make sure to pack in the fluids well ahead of time like the night before and the morning of and take a few minutes every half hour or so to stop, cool off, and drink some water or other recovery fluids. Plus what Xy said is also a good idea. Either submerse your wrists in ice cold water or take an ice cube and run it along the inside of your wrists where the arteries are closest to the skin.

Pro tip: You can do regular Gatorade as well, but put a pinch (or two depending on the size) of salt, preferably Himalayan or Kosher and not just plain table salt, in your Gatorade or even 2-3 times a day in your water. It will help your body absorb more of the liquid and give you better hydration.

Out of curiosity, how warm was the temperature there during the heatwave?

Heat stroke can indeed be very serious - and as Loopy's ordeal shows, 'it's not the heat, it's the humidity' and lack of air movement.

Give me 100F and 25% humidity over 80F and 98% humidity any day!

And Texas Gatorade must have a lot less sugar in it than the Canadian edition, if it's effective against dehydration in hot weather. The recommended drink here for rehydration after mild heat stroke is orange juice cut half'n'half with water, with a pinch of salt - gets rid of the sugars that makes it harder to absorb the water, and adds the potassium (from the orange juice) and the sodium (from the salt) that help the absorption of water and the rebalancing of electrolytes in the body.

Gatorade back in the 1980s was like that here, but today Canadian market Gatorade is essentially flat orange soda pop. Far too sweet, no potassium, almost no sodium.

Agreed. That's why it's not ideal, but with a healthy pinch of salt it brings the fluid and electrolyte absorption back into a better range. Me personally, I prefer pedialyte or just good cold water with a pinch of salt in it. But in extreme cases pedialyte for sure.

Glad you're okay again Loopy!

Nevertheless - and not to sound nasty - I've been laughing my head off at UK newspaper reporting on the "killer heat-wave". We're talking about 85-90░F/30-32░C. By those standards, the most populated regions of the world would be oversized cemeteries. And it lets me wonder how the British ever survived being a colonial power ...

The trouble is though, when I actually had heat stroke I couldn't drink anything, and anything I managed to force down just got threw up again straight away. So at what point would the pedialyte etc be useful? Before that point, I guess?

Hey now, this is about 10 degrees hotter than usual all of the sudden, with very high humidity! I think most people would struggle if you suddenly changed things that dramatically! Not to mention, nowhere around here has air con or even good ventilation or anything; my house is like a greenhouse.

It's one thing to have high temperatures in a place designed to deal with them and another completely to have them in a place like this. When I had heat stroke? There were no fans, nowhere cold to put me, not even a place with good ventilation; the best they could do was an office with a single window open. I also took them half an hour to realise that I needed to be manually cooled down; nobody teaches us what to do when we/other people are in trouble from the heat. As much as I laugh about it, I got to a point where I was on my own and couldn't breathe properly and had palpiations and couldn't see and couldn't remember what day of the week it was or anything like that. And I was left like that for 30 mins. They then let me walk a mile on my own in the sun. The lack of first aid knowledge when it comes to heat stroke could very easily have killed me.
