Sick and HVAC reliant

I know that there is never a good time to be sick, but this has to be the worst moment.

Not only are all of my friends and family members hundreds of miles away but we couldn’t spend time together even if we wanted to.

With me falling under the weather, there is no way for us to logically meet up or potentially transmit illnesses to each other. This is why I am stuck isolated in my house trying to get by without any assistance as my body revolts against me in every way. I’m doing everything I can to take care of myself, but honestly the only thing that makes me feel any better is modifying the indoor air temperature to match my current state. Unfortunately, my body temperature seems to be fluctuating at an extremely rapid speed. Every few hours I feel like I am burning hot or freezing cold. I keep changing the indoor air temperature control settings to try to neutralize my unfortunate body condition. However, I’m also worried about how much money I’m spending on my energy bill right now. Beyond that, it’s not easy to get up and navigate to the central heating and cooling system thermostat when I am tethered to the toilet and couch. It seems like I can’t win as far as temperature control or indoor air quality control right now. I honestly wish that I had a smart thermostat so I could easily change my indoor air temperature control settings… Or just a loved one who could take care of me and perform the HVAC modifications as needed.
