Spicy lemonade is a refreshing drink popularly known as jaljeera in Northern parts of India. Sour and spicy taste makes it a great drink when served during summers and winters.
On 28 December 2017, the day went really well. As it was getting dark in the evening, I started developing a feeling of discomfort. Neither could I rest in my bed nor could i relax in my sofa. I kept wandering here and there with uneasiness. My hands were getting cold. I did not feel like taking my dinner. I sent my son to get a a glucose pack just in case i throw out the whole night. As soon as he came back from the pharmacy with a pack of glucose, he went straight and settled down in his chair in the balcony. His face was dull and he was sweating. It is December and is cold outside. I was thinking “why is he sweating and looking dull?”.
Within seconds, he ran to the outdoor toilet and started vomiting. Not giving a moment to think, I turned on the outdoor lights and i also started throwing out. We both went on 2-3 rounds of throwing out sessions and then we settled down tired in our beds. I knew i wont be able to sleep with my stomach upset. My son slept off at around 10pm. I couldnt sleep. I had a rumbling stomach that night. Luckily, we both did not have a disturbed night. We did not take any medications except for glucose. I made this Jaljeera at least 3 to 4 times within the next 24 hours and kept having it frequently. Everything got settled by the next evening.
at home to cope up with such unexpected heath setbacks.
