That Corona life - Running from Corona and caught a stomach flu (sob)

I've decided to get serious about losing weight.
My body is lumpy and feels horrible with the weight gain. So the universe is always listening to us, right?

So the week after I started to reduce my food intake, I picked up chicken from a food place near my apartment. I ate the chicken Sunday night then took my meds the next morning. The meds were taken twice, in error.

My body was racked with projectile vomiting and explosive diarrhea for four hours! From 6 to 9am.
There was something wrong with the chicken or the oil it was fried in. Mixed with the accidental double dosage of prescription created an internal tornado.

I was weak, light headed and fearful of passing out in an empty apartment, with no one looking for me!
There was no job to be late for and no one who would notice my absence.

Making a phone call to a Korean friend was necessary unless there was another clean way to get medical help.
It took me 30 minutes to get dressed between bathroom visits. After finally getting dressed, I called Mr Park and he drove me to his brother's medical office. After one hour on an IV, my stomach stopped cramping and I was able to breathe.

This was such a scary experience. Wow.
No more chicken from that place, man.

I have not felt that bad since my college's stomach flu situation. Once you've had the stomach flu you actually become afraid of eating again. LOL.
Damn you, chicken place!!!

The new coronavirus normal - visiting a hospital

The new normal during this corona virus situation is that you must be scanned for a fever before entering any hospital. If you have a fever you will not be able to enter a hospital. If you do NOT have a fever then you will be given a sticker and allowed to enter. This is the world we are living in right now. 
Fever - no entry into a hospital.
No fever - entry.
