Recovering from Food Poisoning

Seem to finally be recovering. May I say for the record, food poisoning sucketh. I felt worse than all but one or two times in my life (and one of those was when my kidney went out and I nearly died). I couldn't even keep down water for most of yesterday. Seriously. WATER. I actually decided that if I wasn't better today the hospital was a possibility. When someone without health insurance who loathes hospitals says that you know it's gotten bad.

But I'm not as weak as I was. I am actually upright. I'm hydrated (and it stayed down!). I was even adventurous enough to try TOAST. But I think I have now crossed Mexican food off of my list of edibles forever. Just typing the words made my stomach roll.

Boy, I know what you mean about even thinking about one type of food can make you ill. I have a hate affair with watermelon. I got sick for 2 days when I was 7 years old. I'm 53 and can't even stand the smell.

Take care of yourself.

I too know what you mean, my no no food believe it or not is brocholli (and boy is that spelled wrong).

Glad to hear you kept down the water and toast.

I certainly hope you are feeling better now, and that you haven't had any complications as a result of your illness. Did you ever find out what made you sick?
