Amoebas

So, after losing 12lbs in the last two weeks and not being able to even drink water, finally figured out that I have Aembiasis entamoeba histolytica. Nope, I canít pronounce it either. Iím now flying out of Afghanistan to get this taken care of. Anyone ever deal with this before? Iím told itís pretty common outside the US.

No. But next time around go crazy with hand hygiene, no hand to mouth, etc. Follow your providers plan and you should be fine.

And leave the sheep alone.

I jest.
