Yakult Saves the Day

I was down with a mild food poisoning on Saturday. It is mild because it only consist of shitting fluid until I was dehydrated and lost lots of salt, no vomiting involves. I think the cause is the either the salmons or mussels from the company kick-off dinner in a 5-star hotel. Maybe my immune system was affected in late nights sleeping after 2 weeks of night shift, until the point I can eat uncooked seafood.

Went to see the doctor. The doc prescribed me some pills for stomach ache, diarrhea, gas, antibiotic and 3 packets of salt solution. I was not to eat anything for a day and only drink the salt solution mixed with warm water. When you loses water and salt from your body, you'll feel very tire even after 8 hours of sleep.

After a day of not eating anything but the pills and mixed-salt solution, I got better and started to take some food. After 2 days of recovering from the food poisoining, I found out what goes inside me didn't want to come out. I was having a case of constipation now. My stomach felt bloated.

In the afternoon, I went to Jusco Kepong and bought a packet of Yakult. I was thinking that during the food poisoning, all the good bacteria that help with digestion must have been killed thus resulting of in but not out. So, I have to replennish the good bacteria. Drank two Yakult and felt a bit better. The stomach don't feel bloated. A few hours after that, I litterally can shit again. Wow, Yakult really make my day.

P.S. Now I understand why Timothy has an addiction for this drink.
