    Keep my shots card up to date - been lots of places and haven't picked up anything worse than a bit of food poisoning

    Food poisoning when travelling in SEAsia (Cambodia mostly) and while living in China.

    Pneumonia/Asthma in China. Probably induced by pollution and teaching in a school that had severe mold in the basement.
    Torn miniscus in the knee where I couldn't walk for a few weeks.

    When I first came to Thailand I flew into Phuket.

    Got bitten by mossies/sand flies/something.

    Must have scratched them a lot because they blew up. Absolutely gross. The local doc popped them and they were ok. Never happened again.

    My first three trips to Cambo I picked up unbelievable cases of the runs runs. Not too debilitating but just kept me in my hotel room for three days each time. After the first bout, I made sure to eat in "respectable" places and avoided lukewarm recycled street food like the plague, but to no avail.

    I must have got the "good" bacteria by now, because I haven't had it since and I don't take any particular precautions.

    ^Oddly enough, I lived in Cambodia for a year and never had any problems with the food there, even when pissed up and eating from some dodgy cart at 1.30 in a morning. Thailand though is still the same: within 2 days of landing I'm rushing back and forth to the bog. It eases after the 3rd day, but it's always the same for the first few.

    Worst I had in 13 years was tropical infection- had two on my right foot/ leg that took months to get rid of. One from a simple graze the other a scratched mozzie bite.
    Otherwise, well lucky. No malaria/ dengue, nor gastro stuff to speak of, not even a moto accident. Heck, even avoided VD in Pattaya all those years.

    You cannot 'catch' a torn miniscus.

    When I retired to Thailand in 2007 I’d had issues for years with some sort of left ear infection. When I left in 2010 to go back to Japan I remembered it and realized the heat must have killed it. Have never had the problem again.
