When it rains, it pours. So as I wrote earlier in the week I have come down with a case of TMJ. My jaw has been very sore and it has been hard to eat anything that requires much chewing. On Saturday I was still away with my daughter at her tournament and we went into a Wegman's grocery store outside of Philadelphia and I bought a raw tuna roll for lunch. I couldn't figure out what else to get that wouldn't hurt my jaw. My eleven year old daughter told me three times I shouldn't buy it. She kept saying, "you know daddy always says don't eat Sushi from a grocery store". The woman behind the counter made it "fresh" for me so I felt some comfort that it hadn't been sitting there.
Well with each day that passed this week I got a little sicker and sicker. By yesterday I was very sick and experiencing pain like I had never felt before (except for maybe labor). After some emergency tests were performed I was diagnosed with Acute Infectious Colitis. Basically very bad bacteria got into my body via a food I ate...hence the raw sushi. Still waiting to hear exactly which bacteria is ravaging my body. I am on antibiotics now (that should kill the typical offenders) and the doctor said hopefully by tomorrow I will start to feel a little better. By doctor's orders no raw sushi for at least a year. If you ask me...I'm done with raw...period!!
Hopefully by next week everything will be back to normal.
