I didn’t plan to fall asleep in the hot sun yesterday, but that is exactly what occurred when I went to the beach.
I didn’t sleep well the previous night and I was a little tired.
I laid my head down for a couple of minutes and I fell asleep in the sand. I woke up 3 hours later when I was red and sunburned. I felt the weight of my arms and legs as I trudged through the sand to my truck. I turned on the air conditioner as soon as I got in the car, but I was very cold as soon as it came on. It was extremely hot outside, but I was feeling chilled. I knew I had too much sun. I went home and drank a lot of water. I had a light dinner and then I laid down by the air conditioner. I woke up about three or four hours later and I was in a lot of pain. I took another cold shower and I put some aloe on my arms and legs. I had to stay home from work today, because I still feel the effects from the sun yesterday. I’m going to spend the day in bed with the air conditioner blowing on my hot and puffy skin. I hope that a couple of tylenol will take away the pain. I can’t afford to miss a bunch of work days, and I have a meeting with two potential clients tomorrow afternoon. I have to take it easy today, so I can feel better tomorrow.
