Screwed UP Today
« on: Jul 30, 2020, 05:08 PM »
Did a whole bunch of yard work today. Mowing, hand mowing, trimming, gardening. I was dripping with sweat when I came in. Trouble was, I didnít take in enough water while I was out there. I got very dehydrated.

I was dizzy, disoriented, nauseous and had chills. Took me 3 hours of pretty steady intake to turn the corner.

I know better......I really screwed up.

Don't do that again. Less continuous yardwork and more fishing plus H2O. I split my mowing up, front day 1, back day 2.

Need to be grilling  some fresh vegetables while doing  all the yard work. Nuts are a good protein as well in the heat

Two years ago this week, I wound up in the ER for 17 hours for heat prostration.  Worked hard digging a drain under my foundation then rode a salmon charter with a friend and his wife the next morning in 90+.  Don't remember much of the charter nor the ride home.  Wife took one look at me and off to the hospital we went.  Four bags of IV fluids and atavan.  Zero fun was had.  Can't do the heat anymore.  Glad you saw the signs and did what was was needed.  Bad stuff, symptoms sneak up on you before you know it.

Yeah, i was pretty stupid for a guy whoís worked out in the hot weather most of his life. Slept from 7;30 last night till 5;00 this morning. Took a shortened walk and donated half a pint of blood to the mosquito population.

Anyway. I feel much better this morning. Light day for me today.

Glad you're ok and a good reminder for us.  I tend to push it to hard sometimes, as well.

  , heat exhaustion is no joke  , glad you didnít push on any longer , glad your feeling better , take it easy for a couple days
 http:// Living with heat exhaustion and heatstroke

 After you've had heat exhaustion or heatstroke, you will be sensitive to heat. This can last for about a week. It's important to rest and let your body recover. Avoid hot weather and exercise.Mar 27, 2019

Thatís good your feeling better, Heat stroke and heat exhaustion are nothing to take lightly. When I was working on the Ambulance use to do a lot of those calls in the summer.

Glad your ok Bob. fished 4 hours and rested. I always drink 80 oz. of water a day and more if I'm working but I do pace myself since I'm getting up there. Took me  weeks to spread 5 cubic yards of mulch.
