Bug #3

Whatever the bug, it hits me hard.

This is actually my third bug since the beginning of the year. I got one in New York City, one in London and another one in Pisa, I gather.

This one had given me headache, muscular pain, upset my stomach, diarrhea, cramps, sore throat. It must be an Adenovirus.

I'll go to my physician to see if I can get some IV. I still can't eat (in 24 hours I had 6 spoons of steamed rice, 2 3oz can of applesauce, 1 small leaf of carasau bread) but I did start drinking, thank God, because I was afraid to have kidney stones again, given the dehydratation.

I'm in pain, can't eat, and I see no quick solution.
