Cabin Fever is a term for a claustrophobic reaction that takes place when a person or group is isolated and/or shut in, in a small space with nothing to do, for an extended period. (as in a simple country vacation cottage during a long rain or snow). Symptoms include restlessness, irritability, irrational frustration with everyday objects, forgetfulness, laughter, excessive sleeping, distrust of anyone they are with, and an urge to go outside even in the rain, snow or dark.
For those who want to be alone or those who are in a group holding up for long periods of time in a closed location please take this into consideration. Men and Women do strange things when they feel trapped or restricted to move about. In extreme cases people will probably just run out like a maniac and try to kill every zombie alive just to get to â€œFreedomâ€. This could severely jeopardize your group and your lives.
If by yourself you will probably become like my friend Jack, you will start hallucinating like you were on a LSD trip in Woodstock 1969. Symptoms include drinking fake liquor and talking to your favorite bartender, talking to strange caretakers that want to convince you to kill your loved ones and the occasional one night stand with beautiful girls that turn into putrid dead old ladies. WOW! I just realized, this doesnâ€™t really sound that bad after all. â€œHoney, Iâ€™m Home.â€
