I am suffering from Foodborne Trematode infection since a few weeks. It is a parasitic infection caused by trematodes. It is also called foodborne
Waking up in the morning
Waking up in the morning is just a ritual that I have to follow because I hardly get any sound sleep at night. I experience sudden attacks of severe cramps in my abdomen during the day as well as night because of which I cannot get proper rest. I also get nausea and vomiting at night and sometimes, after getting up. I have not slept well since the day the symptoms of this infection started troubling me.
Starting the day
Weakness is another major complaint that has been bothering me a lot. This infection has affected my liver, gallbladder, and even lungs. I have a lot of difficulty in getting up from my bed due to the weakness. Additionally, I also experience chest
Breakfast, lunch, and dinner
My diet is restricted to eating high-protein foods and fresh fruits. I avoid eating fatty foods as my digestion has become very weak. It also makes me feel nauseated. I eat my dinner early in the evening. This allows sufficient time for my weakened digestive system to digest the food properly. I am also taking a few vitamin supplements as the diet is not sufficient for me to fight weakness. I have already lost a lot of weight. My appetite has also reduced. So, I have to rely on these supplements to ensure I do not suffer from any deficiency. Unfortunately, the foodborne illnesses are diseases that affect people in a very tough way.

I try to manage some of my professional commitments by attending meetings through voice, and video calls. However, this has reduced my productivity and also affected my performance to a great extent. I am being treated with antiparasitic drugs. The doctor has also advised me and my family to undergo preventive chemotherapy. It is a population-based approach in which all the people in an area are given medications to prevent the spread of the parasites. This treatment should protect my family members from contracting the infection from me.
