A word to the wise

Post by carrie »

Lived here many years and today pottering about in my garden decided I would buy some more plants, so off I went. Walked from Gezira to have a look at the collosii then to the garden centre. When I got there felt awful and must have looked it because the man was most concerned and asked me to lie down in his little shack under the fan, no I wanted to go home. He got me a tuk tik and off I went. Came home terrible headache, sweating profusly suffering from mild sun stroke. That's what you get for walking about in the middle of the day no head covering and insufficient water. I thought I was immune obviously not, please all take care.

Hope you are feeling better now.

I then a lot of people just don't realise how much fluid they lose when out in the sun. Many seem to rely on feeling sweaty to tell them they are losing fluids but its usually when you don't feel the sweat that you should heed the warning sign. Another good reason for wearing long sleeves and other cover ups as the help keep the body moisture and temperature more balanced.

As for me, I don't go further than the dustbin without a bottle of water.

You just don't realize how the sun is affecting you. I've lived here long enough to know better but twice in the last ten days or so I've suffered the same while doing a job in the garden of a friend. :stp My head is like a smilie raspberry at the mo.
