Well now I have had the “true African” experience
On Monday I was feeling kind of sick in the morning…
Then later that afternoon I had a fever, body aches and chills
My first thought was…man I am going to die in Africa.
Not really but I really did not want to go to the hospital here
So my house mother made me eat red red( fried plantains and some red sauce)
This by the way is not what you want when you are feeling sick
So of course I threw it up about an hour later
But hey that was okay because my fever broke after that!
And I felt good after that... for the most part
They still made me go to the hospital the next morning… and guess what they said?
You have malaria. (Hahaha its slightly funny)
That is the one thing I think all volunteers worry about getting the most
I am not too sure that I really have malaria
They seem to think anytime you are sick here it must be malaria
But they gave me antibiotics for it
And some for my bowel movements..
So now I will be taking 4 pills 3 times a day.
Whatever makes me better
