I am having bad experiences recently in Ambon just right before I will be back to my hometown. About two days ago, when I was in a meeting room, leading discussion with my friend, slowly I felt cold sweat and nausea. It was happening just right after I had lunch. Avoiding some attention from the audiences, I went to toilet. Usually, I took a toilet at the 2nd floor, but since I thought I could not reach to the floor (I was in the 3rd floor), I just used a toilet at the 3rd floor which is not hygiene (yet). Just right I stepped in to the toilet, I thrown out my whole gastric contents.
It was relieving for my stomach, but the sweat was getting much and more. Fortunately, dr Etta had preserved some medicines, so I could get some. Thanks for you dr Etta. By taking that medicine and having a little nap, I felt better.
One day after, just right I stepped in to my room after completing my activities for the day, I had again felt the same signs and symptoms. Just by taking a little bit rest, I felt (a little bit) ok. However, when the house keeper told me for having dinner, suddenly, my stomach was in a problem again. I can say no and thanks for having dinner that night, but I felt uncomfortable, so I went down (my room is in the 2nd floor). When I was there, what I was afraid of I (again) thrown out my gastric contents was happening. My friend who worried about it asked me to had dinner even just for one or two spoons of rice. But I can’t. I went back to my room and tried to sleep. Thanks God, I could sleep well.
After two bad experiences I had, I conclude that many factors contribute to my health problem.
- Meal schedule. I should change my meal schedules. Breakfast at 7 am, lunch at 12 am and supper at 6 pm. In my hometown, I usually have breakfast at 8.30 am, lunch at 2 pm and dinner at 8 pm.
- Ambonesses like hot and chilly meals. Their salads, fishes and meats are always added with chilly. It does not matter in the morning, noon nor night.
- It is difficult to have meal outside the places I know since I am not sure whether it is halal or not, and
- Basically, I have had dyspepsia. It hence takes the biggest part of the problem.
