I hope you like the hat in this photo. You may be seeing it on a regular basis.
Today is the 2 month anniversary for my attack of Dengue Fever. We were in Melbourne, Australia, and it’s an event I will never forget. I felt horrible, and there was nothing funny about it. However, now that I’m feeling better, it’s starting to get a bit funnier.
Side effects are showing up that are interesting … to say the least. My list of strange symptoms are: skin flaking off the soles of my feet, itching all over, prickly feelings that move around my body, a “chalky” feel to my skin, and a heightened sensitivity to insect bites. I’ve had warts since childhood, and if there’s a silver lining to this affliction, the warts have disappeared. Weird, weird!
I’ve researched these strange symptoms online, and if the comments are true, I have some serious hair loss to look forward to as well. But not to worry, I remember how badly I felt when the fever was burning through my system. Compared to that, this stuff is just an inconvenience. As to the hair loss, it’s just a faster trip down a road I was already traveling.
Thanks again to my family and friends who keep checking in to see how I’m doing. I may have no skin or hair left, but I’ll be fine.
