I was born blown minded with an eye on oblivion

Around 2:00am I woke up nauseous and unable to keep any food or liquid down or in. By 5:00am I fell when trying to get to the bathroom. By 5:30 my boss was at my door and telling me he’d drive me to the hospital. My boss stayed with me the entire time I was in the hospital, which was around five hours. After some tests and several hours on an IV, I was released. Since then my boss has brought me food, explained my medication, and generally been supportive and present. I just slept for about 8 hours, and found another message asking if I needed anything.
Considering how terrible this day was, it was made infinitely better by having someone around who acted as a proxy parent. The Korean medical system also get a big thumbs up, because even though there is apparently a doctor’s strike going on, my care was efficient and courteous.
Also, I know I will not be eating clams again for a long time.
