Holy health issues batman

That's right robins, I have been backhanded by the cold ice queen that is health related issues. The last month has been a literal hell on earth. Allow me to bring you up to speed. This blog will in no way do it justice.

1. Dengue Fever- also known as bonecrusher disease for how it makes you feel. Cute. My experience this pleasant little jungle fever (grow up) was a 7 day suffer fest. I had about 17 episodes of 5-6 hour fevers in that time span. It got up to about 101-103 and my back felt like someone hit it with a hammer and my eye sockets felt like they were in a vice. I couldn't imagine being sicker.

2. Food poisoning- after eating at places that would give you tetanus just looking at them, I got horrific food poisoning from a yogurt stand in a mall in the richest part of town (imagine a baskin robins in the hamptons or something). I think the frozen coconut was rotten and it took a while for my body to register what was wrong. OH when it did. There were serious fireworks. 6-8 hours of puking. (dry heaving/ legit pukes). That coconut got so deep into my GI tract that by the time it was out, I had strained my lower abs so bad that I am feeling it 5 days after.

3. I am currently sitting here, desperately hoping that I can make it to the bathroom in time in case a certain ... ahem urgent, frequent, and unpleasant issue arises. Let's just say this problem is not conducive to being stuck in a third grade classroom without random bathroom breaks. Dios mio.

there are several others little problems that will be divulged once a battery of blood work comes back. Stay tuned as my body falls into disrepair.
