Food Poisoning and Hospital

I really hate the stench of hospital. I can't remember how many times I have been here and how many times I have sat on this wheelchair in a semi-conscious in the middle of the night.

A whole night of rushing to the toilet and puking into the bowl of all the food I took the evening earlier, I woke up finding myself dozing off on the toilet floor. Feeling upside down and everything inside out, I dreaded this feeling. And once I puked all I could out, and there's nothing left more to come out, I still lay before the bowl trying to dig more out.

Many times I found myself dozing off pretty fast into unconsciousness and woke up to the oblivious hour of the day, and then, the night.

My phone rang few times at some point, I couldn't remember, too far to be reached. And as I laid there on my bed, I asked myself when would this be over. The last time it took a night, the last two times it took two days. But oh I could never forget the awfulness, the smell of vomit at my throat and in my nose, the fatigues in all my joints and the pain in my stomach caused by gastric. There's no point taking in any food, all would just come out in the end, in a more horrible way and feel; even water makes me feel queezy. I was facing dehydration fast, and I knew it.

The pain when they try to insert needles for drip woke me up for a while, and I teared to be here, the uncomfortable bed and the unkind words of the doctor who treats non-fatal sickness as nuisance.

I woke up three hours ago, in my bed in Melaka few hundred kilometres away from Sunway hospital. Three holes on the back of my hand, two of which seemed to be pointless poking. Chewing slowly and cautiously on a piece of bread, my first proper meal in two days.

    You need to take MORE fruit juice.

    Invest on a good fruit juicer. Have at least 2 glasses of the fresh juices every daily. Do that for 60 days, and see the difference.

    Take 1 glass first thing in the morning. The second one preferably in the evening before dinner.

    Take more pineapple juice also.

  15. hope u're feeling better. u must have lots of advice. so not to be left out, here's mine - drink lots of of fluids, take plenty of rest, both which u must have done already. take soft drink cos it has sugar, hence give u some energy. ease into a bland diet e.g. cereal, chicken soup. take care

  20. Well, this should be a blessing in disguise. Many young gals likes to "Anorexia Nervosa".

    Anorexia nervosa is a psychiatric diagnosis that describes an eating disorder characterized by low body weight and body image distortion with an obsessive fear of gaining weight. Individuals with anorexia are known to commonly control body weight through the means of voluntary starvation, purging, vomiting, excessive exercise, or other weight control measures, such as diet pills or diuretic drugs. It primarily affects adolescent females, however approximately 10% of people with the diagnosis are male. Anorexia nervosa is a complex condition, involving psychological, neurobiological, and sociological components.

    Lucky for you it's natural.

    I believe you must have lost at least 3 to 5kg easily in 1 week.

    Anyway, get well soon. You should feel a little lighter!! Haha.

    It sucks to be sick.

    P.S/ Take lots of Vitamin C!

  36. Food poisoning is the worst. You lie like this also cannot, you try to sleep also cannot. But somehow, the toilet floor becomes a great place to snooze.
