S3E4. 食中毒しょくちゅうどくでした


Hello. This is episode 4 of season 3 of my podcast. It is already March, but the weather is still cold. Speaking of which, I have written a new article for the first time in a while. The article is about conjugating adjectives. It is on my website. Please take a look at it if you want to review adjectives.


I have had a stomach ache lately. The pain lasted for days and I could not figure out the cause. I thought I might have an ikaiyou because I had been working every day recently. An ikaiyou (a stomach ulcer) is a stomach problem. I went to a local hospital right after I finished my lessons this week. It is hard to walk when your stomach hurts. It takes about 10 minutes to walk from my house to the neighborhood hospital, but it felt like 30 minutes. I don’t have a car, so at times like this I envy those who do.


I went to the hospital and was told that it might be food poisoning. Recently I bought a fish that I don’t usually buy. I cooked it by myself and ate it, so that might be the cause. I asked “I want to be tested for an ikaiyou”, but they refused, saying “Your stomach is very swollen and we cannot perform an examination using a gastroscope today”. That day, I was given an IV drip, some medicine, and left. So I still don’t know the cause. If it is food poisoning, it should go away in a couple of days. While I was taking the medicine, the pain got better.


I was told not to eat meat or fried foods until I am completely healed, which is hard. I hope it heals quickly. Well, I think that’s it for today. See you next time and thanks for listening!
