You Can Be Deeply Passionate Sometimes
You tend to be a very social person. You live for your friends and family. You can get social burnout occasionally though. You aren't a total extrovert.

You fall in love with ease and confidence. Even if you've had bad experiences in the past, each new love is a reason to start completely over.

You are deeply passionate about several things in your life. You're not passionate about much... and the few passions you have are truly obsessions.

Your sense of humor is sarcastic, snarky, and realistic. You're not exactly happy-go-lucky.

the last part sounds like me. (a note: the HTML don't have the title, but the BB code does. if you do HTML you have to put the title of the result in yourself)

PSA: heat exaustion vs. heat stroke

(originally posted on 7-21-16)

since it will get hotter before it gets cooler, especially in the south & southwest, this is info people need.

feeling faint or dizzy
excessive sweating
cool, pale, clammy skin
nausea or vomiting
rapid, weak pulse
muscle cramps
treatment: get to a cool, air conditioned place. drink water if fully conscious. take a cool shower or use cool compresses. (i suggest using them around your neck or on the inside of your wrists, where the blood vessels or arteries are close to the surface.)

throbbing headache
no sweating
body temperature above 103 F (39.4 C)
red, hot, dry skin
nausea or vomiting
rapid, strong pulse
may lose consciousness
treatment: CALL 911 (or whatever equivalent is in your country) take immediate action to cool the person until help arrives. (i suggest providing shade, maybe getting them inside if they're on hot cement & use cool compresses on them)
