It began with a stomach ache after eating some bad sushi. I had no idea I was about to experience a bout of food poisoning. The nausea and vomiting came soon after, and I knew I would have to be patient. I drank plenty of fluids, tried to rest as much as possible, and put my trust in this disease to pass.
The days dragged on, taking their toll on my weakened body. I ended up in the ER one night when the pain became too intense to bear. Fortunately, I made it out with antibiotics and medication to help relieve my suffering.
Though I spent many days in sick agony, it taught me an important lesson: be careful what you eat and take precautions. I’ve since learned to order food with caution and cook it properly. Food poisoning is no joke, and I’ll never forget how difficult it was to fight off.
