Delirious and Stir Crazy

Delirious and Stir Crazy
May 15, 7:05 am Thursday May 12, 2005

It has been a terrible night; I am in a more or less good Hotel in the city of Santa Rosa, Ecuador. Every part of my body hurts, lying on my bed hurts my back; there is no way to be comfortable. I strangely have an air conditioner that is for a short while too cold and then I am too hot, there is no balance.

This is not the way I wish to feel, and only time will make it go away. I have no idea what is wrong with me; I have a fever, chills, and cannot concentrate. I think I am delirious; the stir-crazies are driving me crazy, the itchy, shaky, nerve wracking feelings. I want them to stop.

I have been thinking all night too much, I am sick enough I know that I should be careful and not do too much. I am going to stay here until this passes; I think the fever is breaking. Now I need some exercise to gets the blood flowing.

A good walk will flush out the body of all the impurities and oxygenate the blood.

I am so human, nice to know I am fallible and can have multiple problems at the same time. It would be terrible to be perfect.
The Independent Traveler or maybe the Solitary Traveler is a fantasy for people to wander the planet, seeking adventure, life, and whatever the world may give. I do not have this fantasy, I know that sharing a trip, friendship and not being alone in this room is the goal, Not to be solitary or independent, I do not thrive on independence, I thrive on my never ending Traveler Curiosity.

Not a good day, however life is good.
I know I am alone today.

:o( that sucks. at least you have us internet-y people with you in thought...
hope you feel better soon.

Oh no! The hobo is sick! This is not good. Make sure you get enough water and asprin if that fever comes back. I hope you get better soon. I leave the USA for Europe in 12 days. I am doing a 2 week stint in Europe as an after college graduation vacation. I will be posting to my blog as much as I can during that time. I am now working full time to become a hobo just like you!
