All that stuff was dropped 8 days before the quake? He talking about 8 days before the big one? Or 8 days before the 6.5 ones (the little ones) that just happened not too long ago?

I’m getting the same vibe, this don’t smell right. First of all, that is a long message for a ‘text message’. Next, no one really refers to the military or OGA as “DOD”. Oh yea and ‘radios dropped in 8 days before’? If it were before, why would they need to be dropped in, it isn’t like Japan is a third world country with no technology base. Maybe it is just bad wording, but it sure does smell. Someone trying to drop some conspiracy rumors in what appears to be an innocuous text?

I’ll assume you must want info on the radios. Where he goes radios sometimes are the only communication. Satellite Cell Phones they have and the news guys bring their own. I know the radios use some military frequencies.

His employer has supplies staged all over the world. This Japan warehouse, one of 3, was set up 8 days before the big one, just a coincidence.

The part about the trash burn made me go WTF? It’s going to be a long messy cleanup no matter how you look at it, but one thing I do not see happening is them shoving all the trash in a pile and setting it on fire.

Besides, the DOD is not running anything with this. All the US Forces assigned to Operation Tomodachi are basically supporting the JGSDF. They’re not setting up shop and doing stuff on their own.

I got it in every single joint, makes my bursitis unbearable, feels like someone took a two by four to lower back, punched in between my shoulder blades.

My quads and calves feel like I had one heck of a workout and Hamstrings keep trying to cramp on me.

If that wasn’t enough, three times today it felt like someone had poured kerosene over me and lit it.

and Piesta Resistance’? A headache at the base of my skull, the top of my head and it feels like someone is poking my eyes with chopsticks from the inside.

Ugh!!!

Yup - same bug. I was flat on my back for the entire weekend. The missus poked her head in the door every couple of hours to make sure I hadn't choked on my own sputum. I just got my sense of taste and smell back for the first time in over two days. She had it before I did, for a change - she usually plays Typhoid Mary, and crop dusts it to everyone without showing a symptom. This time, she ended up on Biaxin, codeine cough syrup, and a bronchial inhalator for a lung infection. One helluva bug. My head still feels like it's in a cement mixer.

Wow. Another flu victim at the end of March? Both of my kids and I got it. Son had a very mild case. Daughter and I have been completely miserable. I’ve been out of bed for about 5 or 6 hours today compared to 1 or 2 for the past 2 days. Hubby has so far avoided it. I’m afraid it’s not quite done with me yet though. Still hurts to move my eyes and the chills/fever/bodyaches/weakness are still here, although to a lesser degree.

Sorry for double off topic posts. The text is odd to me too.

Drink lots of water and orange juice if you can. Otherwise clear fluids and electrolytes. You will get better. I think we may have had the same thing. It way sucks for about 10 days.

I almost started to say the worst thing was “...” but all of it has been awful. Going from burning hot to shaking, shivering, and freezing over and over and over. So much pain in my extremities hubby made me take a pain pill. I described it as pain bombs going off all over. Eye pain so bad it was easiest to keep them closed. Headache. Cough. Weak as a kitten. And complete loss of sense of taste and smell still.

The worst thing though was, as a Mom, not being able to care for my daughter. Hubby did good though.

Hope you’re all on the mend soon.
