Food Poisoning?

Hey everyone!  I think I've had food poisoning!  The Man and I went out to dinner Wednesday, shared a prime rib, but had separate salads.  I started getting sick a couple of hours later -- really bad stomach ache that totally went "south," and then things started happening in the "northern" direction.   I almost passed out in an unsightly position on the "thrown" with my head in a bucket from sheer exhaustion.   I have never been that sick in my entire life.  I was still sick most of Thursday, but kept trying to force fluids, but even water was making me sick.  The Man has not gotten sick, thank goodness.  He has been my "Knight," trying to find things that I might be able to eat.  Finally on Friday I was able to eat a piece of toast and drink a little gingerale.  I have just felt drained, no pun intended, but was having so much trouble eating anything that might give me some energy.  I added plain rice to my diet today, and I hope that I'm passed the worst of it.  Have any of you ever had food poisoning before?  I never have, but I'm quite sure it wasn't a stomach bug or sweet hubby would be sick by now, too.  

Anyway, I just wanted to let you know why I haven't been around much.  I've been slowing making my rounds trying to visit, but not always leaving comments.  I couldn't even look at my computer for a few days, so I have a bit of catching up to do.  First I have to catch up on my strength.  Being older and sick is definitely not for sissies!


  1. So sorry about your unfortunate "salad" experience! I hope you are feeling better! Life to the full! Melissa @ DaisyMaeBelle

  2. Am so sorry to hear this. Yes, I got sick once with tuna fish & to this day I cannot eat tuna fish. Here's hoping things will be going better for you as the days progress. I'm headed to Las Vegas for a couple of days. Hugs.

  3. Oh no! That's awful! I hope you're feeling like yourself again soon.

  4. Feel better dear.. good news about it is that, most of the types of food poisoning resolve quickly and without aftermaths (except for the weakness of course).

    1. Thank you, Vel. Starting to feel better, finally!

  5. Oh, Carol! This happened to me a couple of years ago on Thanksgiving. I thought I was going to die. Worst feeling ever! I hope you get to feeling better soon.

  6. Hi sweet lady, I am so sorry for your awful experience. I have had food poisoning before, was in the bed for five days without food, and actually wanted to die I was sooo sick. I ended up having to have IV fluids because I couldn't even handle an ice cube in my mouth! Hubby says food poisoning generally doesn't start immediately after eating something. Notice, I said generally. Think back 2-3 days about what you ate?? I sure hope your better soon.

  7. Oh Carol! I'm so sorry you were sick. I've never had food poisoning, but have heard it is just terrible. I've heard lettuce is often the common denominator when several people have had food poisoning or E.coli (that's why I still re-wash the pre-washed lettuce in those bags...maybe I'm a little paranoid) :)Make sure you get lots and lots of rest and relaxation. Glad the gingerale is helping. Just take things slow in the food department. :) Maybe try some Gatorade too.


I truly love to hear from you and try to respond to each and everyone. If you have "no reply blogger," I will respond in my comments section and then visit your blog as soon as I can.

Make this a great day!
