Remember that?? (NO!? Pay attention!! I shouldn't have to say this shit twice - although, technically I probably repeat myself four or five times because I forget who I told what because I don't even listen to me...)
ANYWAY, today the Embassy doc was briefing everyone on the multiple cases of cerebral malaria here in Khartoum after those damn rains! WTF!?!? Apparently, we were supposed to be taking the malaria medication more than once. SOMEONE REALLY NEEDS TO TELL US THIS SHIT (more than once).
So anyway, after my rounds of National Days (which still haven't ended, fyi) I noticed that I have approximately 72 mosquito bites on my ankles and feet (stupid sandals!) I can only assume I will be dead within the week. WHY? Because the stupid nurse handed us a hand out (WHY won't they learn that I cannot be given documentation about shit!?) that said that the symptoms of cerebral malaria are:
(1) impaired consciousness with non-specific fever; (2) generalized convulsions and neurological sequelae; and (3) coma that persists for 24-72 hours, initially rousable and then unrousable.
Seriously! I think I might have impaired consciousness with non-specific fever. I'm sleepy, I'm hot...and although I'm not sure exactly what it IS, but I'm almost positive I have a sequelae!!!
What the hell does that mean?!?!
Goodbye cruel world. But just for the record you should know that I'm going to be SERIOUSLY PISSED if I die in Khartoum and I'm all crabby and sleepy from these national days.
Make no mistake, the malaria may get me, but I'm gonna haunt your asses!!!
