the thing is... you have to be careful with dehydration especially with diarrhea - there's a fine line between just feeling bad - then boom you're in really bad shape with your organs really suffering and needing emergency care - especially in this heat (through the weekend).
take it easy its been almost 5 days right? thats a red flag and needs a medical consult.
i spoke my doc earlier this week. he says it might me chagella (sp?) in which case i should let it run its course, unless i see blood or am totally miserable. i havent had the runs since tuesday though. im just queasy, with an achy belly, and whatever i eat comes through only semi solid, but tbh im not eating much. only going to the can once a day.
i am drinking liek a camel. lots of water, and some gatorade (which is so fucking disgusting, i dont know why any one drinks this stuff willingly).
if im still not 100% by monday, ill make an appointent. thanks for all your help, doc!
