So I've been piddling on the interweb and just watching tv for the past couple days.

This whole thing started last Sunday--thought I was getting sick, but was in for much more...

Had the worst dull headache for 5 days, fever, chills and body aches. Zero energy. Finally called in sick to work Thurs and Fri. The lab results came in and I got a call from the Dr.'s office in regards to bloodwork-- tested positive for WNV (West Nile Virus) ! It is transmitted from infected Mosquitos to humans thru bites.

There is no cure, just been battling it with Advil, rest and lots of water.

I got to tell you, if you have never had it (lots of people contract it yet get no symptoms), it is like having the worst flu from hell.

If you are elderly or have previous health issues it can certainly spell death if you don't get medical help in time.

Just a tale of caution, practice good anti-mosquito personal safe guards.

Be careful! I contracted viral encephalitis which at the time was thought to be carried by a mosquito. At age 31 I was comatose for a week and when I came out my mind was a blank! I spent almost a year recovering my memory.
