For the past two weeks I have been saying, “I don’t feel 100%.” Well today revealed why. The revenge of the parasite. I woke up and had déjà by. Literally as before, threw everything up and my stools progressively turned to liquid. Yesterday, my stomach really hurt but after I had a bowel movement it felt a little better. Today it’s hurting in the exact same place. After throwing up again, I asked my host family to take me to the city, where the nearest laboratory paired with Peace Corps is. After waiting several hours in the sun, it was confirmed I have two parasites. One is the exact same as before. Apparently, the hospital only treated my symptoms and I was supposed to take a pill to kill my parasite when I left. Sigh… No one communicated that to me and now I’m sick and again pushing my work farther behind. Thankfully we caught this before I got dehydrated! No more hospitals for me. My mom made some kind of slime, sludge like jello stuff for me out of camomile and cinnamon. Surprisingly, it’s staying down. So that’s what I’ll be eating with Nica homemade soup… And sleeping. Darn you parasites.
