Food poisoning…

February 25, 2006

Wow, I feel alot better today. It all started at about 0240 on the morning of the 24th. I woke up and ran to the bathroom with an unexplained case of diarrhea. After returning to bed, I woke up 20 minutes later proclaiming, “Oh God no!”, which woke my girlfriend up. After vomiting, and returning to bed, my girlfriend asked if I was ok. This trend continued until 0555 when my alarm for work went off.

After taking a warm shower, and a few Pepto-Bismol chewables, I decided I felt fine and headed to work. Well, about 30-40 minutes into Sergeants Time, I ran out of the classroom and barely made it to the bathroom without vomiting on myself.

At approximately lunch time, my Platoon Sergeant felt I was too sick to be their and sent me home. I sure am glad for that. I am usually the type of person to come to work sick and “tuff it out”. Immediately I began hydrating, popped some Alieve, some Imodium Advanced, and some Nyquil tablets. Next thing I knew, I was waking up at about 2245 that night. I took on another regiment of drugs, and woke up again at abou 0900 today. I feel much better today, a bit of a headache from being dehydrated, but even that is going away now.


Got something to say?
