My girlfriend has been sick all week and I wanted to do something to help her feel better. She has the flu and has been stuck in bed for five days no, and she still does not feel any better. At first, she told me not to stop by her place because she didn’t want to get me sick. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t want the flu, but I still want to take care of her. I went over to her place with some soup and the apartment was practically freezing! She was sweating in her bed from a fever, so she had turned the air conditioner on full blast. I thought this was crazy given that it was the middle of the winter, but she needed to do what she had to do to feel better. I told her to forget the soup, and left to grab her a milkshake to help cool her down. By the time I got back, she was wrapped up in blankets with the heat running! I was shocked at how quickly she had switched things up. She was eating the soup and shivering with the chills. Apparently this entire week has consisted of her switching the air conditioning and the heat on and off to compensate with her hot flashes and chills. Luckily for her, she has a smart thermostat that allows her to change the temperature right from her phone. If she had to keep getting up and walking over to the thermostat, I think she would have let me come over a lot sooner. I felt really bad that she was feeling so poorly, but I sat with her as she switched the temperature every twenty minutes and alternated between the soup and the milkshake. It would have been funny if she wasn’t feeling so sick, but I am glad she has a nice heating and cooling system to help her feel better.
