I was in the hospital once for 36 hours because of food poisoning. They had to administer 7 pints of fluids to me because i was critically dehydrated. No fun. I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy...
okay, maybe i would wish it on my worst enemy, but nobody nicer than that.
I'm sorry it does suck.I missed you at tea. But thanks for giving up your nursemaid so she could come.
What's the likely culprit? Feel better.
I know you're like a macho macho man but don't hesitate to call a doctor. They can give you some wunnerful pills to ease the stomach pains.
Its also a good idea to go to a Dr. because sometimes, just sometimes, food poisoning is really herpes... Or.. so I've heard.
and I was just thinking of getting some, just for kicks
If you know you're going to be puking, chug as much ice water as possible. Vomiting is much less unpleasent when what's coming up hasn't had time to warm up to body temp.
I guess you have to be a frequent puker to find this kind of thing out ...
Actually, no. I discovered it quite by accident one night at a party which involved multiple beer bongs. The worst part about puking at a party is all the fuss people make bout you.
my wife said she'd leave me if i don't quit ham radio, over.
There's a restaraunt on the Plaza in Kansas City called Austin's. Don't eat their ribs. I mean they're really good. Really, really good. So good, that they were still tasty as I was hurling them up all night and the next day on the airplane.
Worst weekend in recent memory.
Can you say where you went so we won't be subjected to it? Or what you ate when you went there? Or was it home cooking? And if it was home cooking... WHEN WILL YOU LEARN? :)
Ouch. Drink plenty of fluids, and best wishes toward a speedy recovery.
Have you been puking too? What did you eat? Diarrhea?
What did you eat? Diarrhea?
I certainly hope he's got enough sense not to eat diarrhea. Else he deserves what he gets.
Mega ambiguous phrasing baby! To rephrase:
Have you been puking too? What had you been eating?Was the puking (if it occurred) accompanied by diarrhea?
It was Tao Yin, the combo Chinese/Japanese take-out place. Either the shrimp fried rice or the spring rolls did me in. I won't be ordering from there again...
it's probably the stomach flu that everyone has been getting over the past few weeks and blaming on food poisoning.
I inspect the kitchen of any place that serves any Chinese food before I'll eat there. They're acceptably clean less than half the time. One of the worst offenders is right across the street from us-- a Chinese and Korean place with a fish tank in the waiting area. The tank is usually so filthy and slimy you can barely make out what's inside it.
I'm not as rigorous about checking out Korean, Thai, or Japanese places' kitchens-- they're almost always spotless.
You must be a lot of fun at parties.
