We strut about, thinking the universe revolves around us and our loved ones need us…..all it takes in a bout of acute gastroenteritis to realise that we have no control of our body and health….
What does one do??
Ask for help!!!! one can pass out in the washroom if the condition is severe….
Lots of oral rehydration solution
Antibiotics and antacids/ antispasmodics as and when required
Monitor BP, blood sugar, electrolytes…..
Make sure a loved one is with you
Eat, replenish fluids……and hope for the best
One episode of any sudden illness can force us to face our frailty, our expiry date and our priorities…..stay well, stay safe…..
