Re: Health Alert: Heatstroke

I've had heat stroke alot! it took me approximately 10 years to readjust and get over it. I still have to watch it very, very carefully as I am much more prone to it than before I got it.

Acclimating, fluids, and physical conditioning and understanding your body and how it feels and what it can take is key to preventing it.

I've seen one guy die, another suffer permanent brain damage, and have carried many off on litters to recieve emergency care!

It is nothing to play around with for sure! Thanks for the reminder Janet!
