A few weeks ago, I went to a doctor for a routine check-up.
The doctor had just finished a 10-minute exam that included my blood pressure, pulse and heart rate.
He had also run my blood through a machine to make sure I didn’t have any allergies.
My doctor was also a regular at my gym and I was wearing a sweat mask.
The only thing that would have stopped him from noticing were my sweat glands, which were very sensitive to any stress or heat.
My body was in shock.
I was sweating, my body was cold, I was dehydrated and my muscles were tense.
I had a lot of issues, I thought.
I thought, Oh, I have a virus.
My doctors and I were in shock because we had just had a routine blood test.
I hadn’t felt like that in months.
I’m not a huge fan of the idea of wearing a mask, especially when it’s cold.
My parents always warned me about the dangers of wearing the mask during cold weather, but I didn`t want to give up my personal comfort zone.
So I wore a mask the entire time I went for my routine test.
And, of course, I kept my sweat on.
I even put on a pair of gloves.
It wasn’t until I went home that I realized how much I missed the sense of safety and security that masks provide.
I could not imagine living my life without a mask.
And then I noticed that the mask did not feel like I was getting any more comfortable.
It felt like I had to keep moving.
When I went back to work the next day, my sweat was still on my face.
I started thinking, Oh my god, my whole body is sweaty.
I feel so tired.
I`ve been on a diet for two weeks, and I feel like my body is getting cold, like I`m sweating.
My sweat glands are very sensitive.
And the first thing that I did was go to the gym to work out.
I have to keep my sweat off my face, because I`ll get dizzy if I don`t.
So I took a couple of days off work and went to the doctor.
I needed to get tested.
I felt like my skin was just going to freeze.
The tests showed my sweat level had dropped from 103 degrees to 93 degrees.
The next day I went again.
My test showed that I had not had any of the symptoms mentioned above.
I went in for the next test and it showed I had actually had a virus that was passed along to me by the doctor I was seeing.
I got the flu.
There was one problem with that test.
The results were inconclusive.
That doctor who did the test said, We can tell from the results that you`ve had a mild case.
We don`ve seen any other signs of the virus.
I said, I guess I should have been tested already.
But the doctor said, Well, we will do it now.
I told him, I`d rather wait until I get my test results.
He said, Oh yeah, I know.
And so, two days later, I got my results.
I called my wife.
She said, You know, I just wish you had tested earlier because I don’t think you were contagious.
I just hope you get better soon.
Well, I think it`s fair to say that my family and I have had a very hard time coping with this illness.
It`s been a tough time.
And I feel that we`re going to have to cope with it for a while, but hopefully we`ll find some solace in the fact that we can just relax a little bit.
I think that it`ll help to know that this illness is not going to keep you down.
