I'm like Carol and feel better when I am in the air conditioning - it's the humidity and heat that makes my body hurt. I don't have a lot to add to what everyone said about
hand/mouth disease. I think it would be a good idea to touch base with your doctor though since you are feeling so sick. You might be going into a flare or you may have picked up a virus from the kids you watch. You just need to be careful.
Take care and I hope you get some rest this weekend and start feeling better.
