eros457

That's not very helpful. Should I be sleeping all day? Can I go out and party till 6am? Should I eat or starve? What should I eat?

Aaaaalllll

Of course you can party, not just till 6am, in fact find a rave near by and pull an all-nighter. And don't eat any thing, skip water all together. You need to starve the virus, and kill the bacteria from thirst.
