It has been over 100 degrees in California for the past couple of weeks. I'm not sure how long it has been since our ac has worked but, when it got hot it didn't. On June 30th the temperature was to over 120 degrees in our kitchen and I worked 4 hours straight in it. As a result I ended up going into heat stroke. I did not go to the hospital but I had all the symptoms. I had dilated pupils, my body wouldn't stop sweating, I had to hold on to things to keep from falling over, I couldn't focus, etc. I felt awful and just wanted to go home, so I did. I worked again on Monday in the heat. Now, a week later, I still can't focus for more than 30 seconds before I start doing something else and I keep making stupid mistakes that I wouldn't have before. People have noticed. What are my options?
