Help with this please

Hello,

Please help me with this text, let me know if I have any mistakes so I can correct them


Ayer me dolió el estómago durante todo el día y no pude comer nada. No sé cuál era la razón del dolor. Quizás haya comido algo malo. Intenté tomar una medicina pero no me ayudó. Quizás haya sido un virus, pero afortunadamente los virus desaparecen por lo general al cabo de un día y hoy ya me siento mucho mejor. Intentaré acordarme de lavarme las manos inmediatamente cada vez que llego a casa, tomarme las vitaminas y comer ajo regularmente.

Change some verb tenses and some vocabulary, all in all is quite well, a bit stilted.

Thanks. Would this be better? :

Quizás fue un virus, pero afortunadamente los virus desaparecen por lo general al cabo de un día, y hoy ya me siento mucho mejor. Intentaré recordar lavarme las manos inmediatamente cada vez que llego a casa, tomarme las vitaminas y comer - whats wrong with this word? ajo regularmente.


I understood that after quizás the use of subjunctive mood is necessary. Why isnt it correct in this case?

I would say tomar ajo, instead of Eating, garlic is usually taken with other foods, it´s not eaten like if it was an apple or pear. It doesn´t sound right to me, that´s all.

Youre right, thanks! What about the rest I have corrected, is it good like that?
