1st Time I suffered Heat Exhaustion

by Anonymous
(Las Vegas, NV, USA)

I've never been one of those people who love the heat. In fact I 'm just the opposite, with good reason.

My first experience with heat exhaustion came when I was working outdoors in the summertime heat of Las Vegas.

A few hours after lunch I began to get a headache, followed shortly thereafter by nausea, severe dizziness, and cold chills.

It was only after going inside, cooling down a good while and drinking what seemed like 5 gallons of Gator-aid that I began to recover.

The lesson here is if you are out in the heat drink plenty of fluids, and take cooling off breaks if susceptible to heat exhaustion.
