I can’t tell if my stomach hurts now from actual virus/parasite problems or from hunger. I can’t eat oatmeal all day. I guess ima head to Safeway and buy some clean stuff.

This is pretty badass eh. It looks almost shady, but hey, you can get lab tests done without any insurance.

Well….what did she say is wrong with you? And how will you get better?
What she said was this:
Clearly a GI tract problem. Likely not meningitis because I wouldn’t be here right now, but it’s probably viral, though it could also be a parasite. It’d be best for me to do a lab test to check for ova/parasites, and she even sent me a place where I can get lab tests done without meddling with insurance. Since I have insurance, I could also go to the emergency room and have everything be taken care of in one place.
There is OTC anti-diahrreal stuff but I should use as little of it as possible because my body is trying to get rid of stuff and using anti-diahrreal will lengthen the time it takes to get better.
I have to eat BART – bananas, apples, rice, toast. So I’m going to suffer for a while longer. Because otherwise I was planning to have a feast today since I haven’t eaten well in days.

Feel much better now that I’ve talked to a doctor. All this work didn’t go to waste.

This actually works, and it feels like the future.
I couldn’t just ignore my symptoms. So. I paid $30 (non-introductory $40) to talk with a doctor face-to-face on my phone.
You pay for a 15-minute session (either on-demand or you can schedule a time in advance) and enter your symptoms. There’s a 15-minute countdown clock while you have the “visit” with the doctor. It might not sound like a lot of time but it’s actually enough. And it was well worth it. The doctor I had was nice and helpful. I small talked with her and she said she owns a private practice and does this when she has extra time. I believe I read somewhere that this company takes a 25% cut, so at a normal price, $30 of the $40 goes to the doctor (I believe at the introductory price the company is just taking a 0% cut).
