Once I landed in BKK, I didn't have much time but I was STRUGGLING to not pass out while walking in the airport...My vision was a blur, my body felt like it was melting and my head was spinning so bad, so I went straight to the nearest restroom and collapsed in the cubicle before continuing to throw up what was left of my guts."
Thankfully, she was able to catch another flight and eventually made it to the ball!
