My Hotel Enigma

Okay, I have a serious question. Sort of.

Every time I stay in a hotel or motel -- I mean, like, every time -- right before I go to bed, I get stricken with what feels like the middle stages of a serious case of the flu: my stomach goes all fluttery, and I invariably get the chills and have to pull all the covers up around myself even if it's a hundred degrees outside. I get cold sweats, and I generally feel like hell until I fall asleep.

The thing is, this never happens at home, or when I'm staying at a friend's house. It ONLY happens in hotel rooms, but it's been happening for years. What the fuck, I ask you, my LJ pals, is going on here?

Poll #1561579 What the fuck
