Avoid puffer fish unless you know which are safe. Certain varieties are poisonous. Puffer Fish on Wikipedia

This is not about what I did today to prepare. Instead, this is about how my EDC was there for me when I needed it.

Three times in my life I experienced a severe case of heartburn. As part of my EDC, I have an 8OZ bottled water and a first aid kit in my bag. In my first aid kit, I have three packets of Alka-Seltzer. As mom and I were out, I felt the burning sensation again. My EDC was there when I needed it.

I had to skip dinner tonight. I'm still not feeling well. I tried just a bowl of yogurt thinking I could at least handle that. I am.

Mom says this is an experience I could learn from, figure out what I could have done differently. I EDC bottled water and Alka-Seltzer. I don't know what I could have done differently.
