Circle 9

May 23, 2009

I seemingly felt better this morning. I had to skip out on the Yuntai Mountain Park which sucked because I was really looking forward to it. Later in the day was a literal hell for me. The worst hunger pains I've ever felt attacked me all day. It doubly sucked because I could barely eat anything. Whenever something is wrong with my stomach, I automatically lose the will to eat, no matter how hungry I am. I was so entirely miserable. All I could bare to eat was water and bananas. To take the antibiotics I had to have something solid in my stomach like bread, but the bread felt so repulsive in my mouth. I took forever to chew it and I had to drink water to help me swallow. The repulsive smell of sewage from the bathroom almost made me throw up once. Christa didn't feel well herself but was made to go and help out the program director. She also wanted to stay behind and look after me (which was very sweet on her part). I think four other people stayed back because they were sick as well. I think it was poor forethought (or no forethought) to leave so many sick people by ourselves. At the clinic they speak no English and I don't know enough Chinese to communicate anything ailing me. He said we could look after each other. Yes, like a bunch of sick-as-dogs people are going to have enough strength to look after one another. I was alone and miserable and for that, I came away a tad bit angry at that....
