on sunday I was rather tired the whole day - from lack of sleep I assumed. good thing me and my friend just chilled in video rooms and other things. heading home and I start having shortness of breath, which I figure was some sort of allergic reaction to something. lie down and chill out most of the night, then go to bed which didn't work real well because I was dry coughing all night and couldn't breath right either. wake up today, have the chills, headache, drowsiness and all that other fun stuff in addition to the nonsense of yesterday that comes with unknown random sickness.

the logical conculsion is, of course, I caught it at BAAF since no one else in my family has it. if that is the case, then it's very possible other people on the site got sick as well. this a normal thing, getting sick right after or at the tail end of cons? anyone else not feeling too hot upon returning home? or did my body decide to be weird and knock me out of commission for a few days right after the con?

holy cow, you too? i've been sick as a horse since yesterday. dry heaves and everything ;_;

a lot of cons can have a sickness epidemic...most likely if someone goes to the con sick and spreads their germs everywhere >_<

the same thing happened to me at Otakon. I was Sick as a dog Saurday monring so I did the only thing I could think of. I threw up, didn't tell anyone about it, and went back to the con center after taking some cold and sinus medication. XD

I later found out that it was exhaustion sickness, so don't worry, I didn't add to the epidemic!
