Guess I won't use food poisoning as an excuse to miss work ever again (I used it a couple of times a couple years ago).

Currently trying to figure out WTF to eat (for IBS-C).

Started Cross Fit 20.12.12 ---- Can't wait to submit my success story on the 1st anniversary of starting primal.
I'm starting to feel like I get out of food-poisoning more easily than most.
I have a phobia of vomiting so strong that I can actually suppress most vomit-bouts and swallow anything that escapes the stomach. Suppressing it seems to work best as, once a bit has got out, it's near-impossible to stop (learned that when I got the flu at 10, don't think I've properly vomited since then).
When I get food-poisoning, I get a gurgly stomach first, then feel queasy, so I drink lots of water and lie down, to avoid vomiting. When the queasiness eases I don't eat for a while, just carry on drinking (don't want to push it). If I have anything escape it goes back down immediately. A few hours later there is severe belly pain and sweating. Once I'm a BIT more relaxed in the stomach, regardless of pain levels, I put something bland in (used to be bread, but it'd prolly be potatoes or almonds now; I fasted through that stage of the only poisoning I've had since going Primal).
By nightfall I'll have severe bowel problems and may stay up half the night running to the toilet. Bouts of cramps spacing-out general aches, too, so sleep is poor. Sweating may or may not have calmed down the next day, but I make sure to get lots of fluid in until every sign is gone.
But not vomiting means I'm mostly OK with it, to a point where I eat slimy, sour, gone-off meat, egg or dairy twice a month (heaven knows how much "gone" veg... as long as the mold is cut off, it'll prolly go in). Then again, I get food poisoning very rarely (only had it once since going Primal last August), so that probably helps. Maybe if I got it every time I'd reconsider my "no food-waste" policy...
Perfection is entirely individual. Any philosophy or pursuit that encourages individuality has merit in that it frees people. Any that encourages shackles only has merit in that it shows you how wrong and desperate the human mind can get in its pursuit of truth.
I get blunter and more narcissistic by the day.
I'd apologize, but...
