Food Poisoning

  1. I am just now getting over a bad bout of food poisoning (won't go into all the details...) but after 1 SOLID day of vommiting every 20 minutes I can say is that for any of you that have ever had it I feel your pain literally.

    Didn't I hear something about Taco Bell and food poisoning a few months ago? It was quite a few people from memory. Feel your pain though, It's the only thing I know of that comes close to being pregnant

    Worst case of food poisoning I ever had...................

    Taco Bell ...Houston, Texas

    Bean Burrito !!

    It's enough to make you say, as I did,

    Adios Houston,

    Hello Big D !!


    It's not the food....it's the food preparers who crossed the Rio Grande YESTERDAY !! and they're cooking your food tonight.

    What's that running water for ?? "Splain it to me uno mas tiempo , .....senor...

    Yeah, I'm real racist when my tacos & beans have Salmonella..

    Dave, I've only had the mildest of mild cases of food poisoning 5 years or so ago, but I've had to care for patients who had much more severe cases like yours, and I felt so bad for them! Glad to hear you're on the mend.

    Dave - I hope you feel back to normal soon!

    My ex got a case of food poisoning from a very nice resturant when I was pregnant ... he offered me some of his food (since I had the appetite back then ) but thankfully I declined. There are so many ways for the food to be contaminated - I do go a little overboard when I cook...

    Anyways, did you all see this?

    :chuckle :chuckle Sorry you're not feeling well Dave. But I have to say, Taco Bell's bean burritos have been an obsession of mine since pregnancy. I just have to have them!

    Maybe a good case of food poisoning would cure that???

    I cannot handle the SMELL of the place, let alone eat the food. I hate Taco Bell w/a passion. Give me REAL mexican food or none at all.

    Mmmmm....but they gotta have the green sauce, and onions....

    Ewww... green sauce? I don't get that, but I do order extra onions. If whomever I'm sitting with can't hear the crunching, there aren't enough onions!

    30 years ago (omg that long ago??!!) Taco Bell was my favorite! I have been back and it has gone downhill over the years. Way downhill. The burrito supreme was my favorite, but now it just has no flavor at all :zzzzz

    I guess they just got too big over the years...

    SORRY ABOUT THE FOOD POISONING! I have been there... I was going to a funeral so was out of town and ended up in ER via ambulance for food poisoning. Poor EMT couldn't get an iv in me (I think I was kinda dehydrated), and finally once in ER they were able to get some fluids in me. I was trying to get the hotel to get me a thermometer, but the only thing they would do was call an ambulance! At first I refused, but several hours later let them call. I was so embarassed, but when alone what else could you do in a hotel with no room service and too sick to get anything but tap water??? I was also on interferon at the time, so my underlying illness plus the sides from the meds didn't make it any better... I have never before, and never since, been so sick in my life!

    I feel for ya!
