    Been feeling bummed lately. CT seemed to help car accident stuff but definitely DID get skin infection from it and now missing it but waiting for Derm appt to find out what it is. Sudden fever and chills, now mostly chills, which is weird since with CT had not felt cold in a long time but does make it easier to skip it while waiting to hear about skin infection.

    I'm sorry to hear you are unwell :( you've coped with such a lot already. Could you try a cool shower or maybe think about one of the fat buster vests as an alternative to the bath, when you're feeling more like it?

    I have been doing cool showers. Can't afford to buy a vest. Also put cold packs on but not enough of them.

    I think it would be easy to make a cooling vest oneself? Just use some old shirts.. and cut and sew so there are place for icepacks.. I think you get my idea? :)
    I have been thinking about it myself to make one but I have the river dips so I am not so sure I need but maybe one day I do make it

    I have used the cold packs but don't have enough, I think. I am so tired.

    Cold packs should work good. I just freeze large plastic baggies.

    Just freeze anything that will lie flattish on your torso, ziplock bags, ice bags, re-sealable sandwich bags, food containers that you put food film in then freeze, lift out, ice block into a carrier so it doesn't leak.
