Your Turn

Has a food poisoning case completely turned you off to the food you got sick from or can you still eat it? I got sick from scallops when I was in the 6th grade and I still have a tough time eating them, and other things I have been sick from I am wary of. It is amazing how a night of puking will get you to rethink certain foods.

No I got food poisoning from a pot roast once and I continued to eat roasted beefs and other type of beefs.
I got alcohol poisoning once too never stopped.

Anandamide said...

Miracle Whip. Ugh.

SarahElizabeth said...

Popcorn from the movies :)oooooo

Sugar said...

I've puked up many a lung from too many beers but it never stopped me from drinking more.

I don't think it would deter me if it's a food I really like and have eaten lots of times before without incident.

Evil Kumquat said...

Olive Garden lasagna.

Puked it up in a friends car almost two decades ago.

I haven't been back since.

Dena said...

I barfed baked beans once as a child and it was terrifying. Never again.

MeanieRhysie said...

Wine, March 1981. I thought I was going to die. I haven't had red wine since, the smell alone makes me gag.

White Caste. ::barf:: I had it once, got soooo sick and never again. I would chew my own flesh first.

dishy said...

Sloe Gin in high school - never again and gross to begin with!

Pink Cashmere said...

Cotton candy and tequila. Sadly, they weren't consumed at the same time.

LowKey said...

Deviled eggs...
*shudder*

Bacon Ranch said...

Awww Rhysie, you know they call them Sliders for a reason <3

In case anyone was wondering, I know from experience that it's a bad idea to order mozzarella sticks at a bowling alley.

AndrewBW said...

When I was 20 I got sick on rum (like, half a bottle's worth!) and it was probably 25 years before I could even stand the smell of rum again.

Dennis Ailor said...

Me too. I do o.k. with rum
Thing's that hurt when refund your meal. Coconut hot peppers will have u feeling as if defiled your throat with razor

Leila Haikonen said...

Never again Pizza Hut. Never again.

Erin Kella said...

Vodka for many, many years. 16 year old me did not realize a little goes a long way. A few half vodka/half OJs later...

::barf:: I've only tried deviled eggs once, didn't get sick, but my gawd, those things are AWFUL!!!

Vera Christina said...

Orange Creamsicles.

When I was a kid I had a fever so my parents gave me orange creamsicles to help cool me. I projectile vomited them all over my room. Still can't eat those things.

MeanieRhysie said...

Bacon, that was my first (and last!) experience with WC. Blergh.

Bowling alley I used to hang out at in MI had wonderful mozzie sticks. That was the mid-80s though.

Sugar said...

YOU TAKE THAT BACK! DEVILED EGGS ARE THE BEST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

MeanieRhysie said...

Deviled eggs are evil, hence the name!!

::barf::

Bacon Ranch said...

Meanie I was 16 and had just taken a job working at a daycare center. Wanted to celebrate my first day of work with friends that night not realizing I wasn't surrounded all day with cute kids but evil little germ goblins in disguise. I'm sure the food was fine but holy hell..

Scarlett Drawl said...

Jack Daniels and Frosted Flakes.

In high school I got drunk one night drinking Jack Daniels on an empty stomach. The next day I woke up to vomit on the side of my bed that included the previous morning's breakfast. NEVER AGAIN.

clearly4you said...

I have gotten sick from various food/beverages over the years and would avoid the offending item for a while (sometimes years) but eventually got over it. My first memory was in grade school getting sick off a little carton of chocolate milk. I will not drink that type of chocolate milk to this day, but Nestles Quik is fine...

Wen said...

A veggie pizza from Trader Joe's. Have not been able to go back and shop there since.

califblondy said...

Just this past year I had one of my usual Lean Cuisine lunches and I noticed the stuffing had some black gel like substance. I took a little taste, who doesn't wanna try black gel, right? It was very bitter so I didn't eat anymore. That night I woke up and ran to the bathroom. It was not pretty.

I still can't eat a Lean Cuisine meal and I've got a bunch in the freezer.

Diane B said...

Boboli pizza crust(if they still make that shit) &
Stuffed green peppers, I'm a violent puker, had ground beef & rice coming out through my nose

RowdyRodimus said...

@Sugar, do you remember how around Easter I told everyone how I have a huge egg hunt for all the kids in the area and basically whoever wants to come and smoke some hams and sides, basically giving everyone a Easter picnic? One of the things I make is about 6 dozen deviled eggs (6 dozen whole eggs, so 144 deviled eggs)using my Grandma's old recipe, the only difference is some finely diced jalapeno's and Worcestershire and a bit of hot sauce. Every year, there's never a single one left.

OT: Never any food but I found out I can't take Cephalexan. I had just had a knee surgery and the doctor gave it to me to avoid an infection. He actually told me to take 2 at a time, 4 times a day. I took the first two and I felt like I was going to die. Everything was coming out both ends for over a week, a high fever and chills. Had it been recent i would've sworn I had Ebola. When I called and asked them to prescribe a new antibiotic, they told me just to take it with yogurt. Needless to say I just used triple antibiotic ointment and hand sanitizer on it and it was fine. But never again with that stuff. Another doctor tried to give me some about six months ago and I said "No" quicker than his words after the name came out.

Yaaay let's share stories about when we destroyed a toilet lol

Anna said...

First time poster, very long time lurker, love the site!

Freshman year in high school, after eating approx 6-8 chicken nuggets with nacho cheese as a side dip I ended up in the hospital for 5 day, turns out I was allergic to chicken, yes, chicken. I haven't had chicken since then :(

Sugar said...

Rowdy, do you make them with mayo or vinegar? Maybe that's everyone's problem is that they've only had ones made with vinegar. The mayo ones are where it's at, yo! Jalapeno and Worcestershire and hot sauce sound amazing too. Can I come to your Easter party next year?

nurysp said...

1. Wine I thought i was going to DIEEEEEE i still cannot stomach the smell

2.oysters
i thought i was going to DIE the remix

Bacon Ranch said...

Ouch Anna (and welcome, btw!) What a think to be allergic to. So you're poultry intolerant? Does that include eggs?

Victoria said...

Chicken from a restaurant. I'm now so paranoid about cooking chicken in any form that I dry it out.

Bacon Ranch said...

I was 17 at the time. I am 45 now. I was going home on a friday night and stopped to fill up my car. This gas station had a small restaurant attached to it. They sold BBQ sandwiches. The guy working thought I was cute and gave me a sandwich for free. It was no more than an hour later that I had projectile vomiting. I threw up 15 times in a row. My mom ran in to see what was wrong and witnessed it. I, like a fool, decided to rinse out my mouth a get a drink of water to get rid of the taste. My mom was shouting at me to stop but it was too late. I then threw up 15 more times. She said I should never drink water after something like that. That was around 30 years ago, and I have not had a bbq sandwich since. I am scared to eat them.

rolotomassi said...

Welcome Anna-cute as hell avi too!! ;)

I'm just signing in after being m.i.a. so, hi everyone-I'mma gonna go back & catch up like a week's worth b4 I say anything redundant..

Anna said...

@Bacon Ranch - Thanx! I can eat eggs with no problem, doctors think it's the hormones/steroids/anti-biotics given to the chicken that causes me to have this reaction. It just sucks... I have to be very careful where I eat at, especially at people's home if they're cooking.

rolotomassi said...

oh, & Raw Oysters 27 years ago...baaaaad scene,long needles & no one spoke English,enough said. No raw shellfish again...EVA. lol

Anna said...

@Victoria - I feel your pain! At least you still eat it :( *pouty face*

rolotomassi said...

@Anna, I didn't think they used chicken in chicken nuggets!?! heheheh

Anna said...

@Rolotomassi - thank you :)

Prunella Buggerweeds said...

I've never had food poisoning and I haven't vomited in 20 years. In my entire life the only times I have vomited were after I ate ice cream. But I eat ice cream all the time and don't vomit so - go figure.

I have a phobia about guacamole. I never eat it. If they accidentally put guac on my burrito after I say no guac and then they scrape it off, they get the look. As in, not good enough. There can't even be a TRACE of it on my burrito.

Guac on Mexican food doesn't make me vomit but it does make my stomach seize up. It's like my digestion just stops. And I sit there groaning for hours.

So, no guac, ever.

Not that fond of avocados as a result.

Sincerely,Your Friend said...

All this talk of puking is making me hungry.

As for deviled eggs. Love them. - never heard of Hot sauce in then but it sounds interesting in addition to the Worchestshire / jalapeƱo. BUT MAYO ALL THE WAY BB! (Never vinegar. Just like potato sakad. NEVAH Vinegar...or pickle)

This might make people puke. I love mayo! (Like my Dad) and we put mayo on our home made (ground beef) tacos. I know. I know. But it's sooooo good. But the tacos have to be home made and ground beef. Or Del Tacos soft chicken tacos.
I wouldn't put a deviled egg on my taco though.
My Dad used to get a bowl of mayo and out a few little pieces if left over roast in it and eat it. When we'd make him a sand which we'd laugh and pile the mayo on both slices if bread as thick as it would stand. Then we'd watch him bite into it. He'd always say, "yummmmmmmm".
Anyone puking now?

Jessi said...

Chicken kiev. I didn't have food poisoning but a nasty bout of the flu kicked in. I thought I would die within those 48 hours. Most horrific illness I have had to this day. Just thinking about it is making me gag.

Lovelyloie said...

I had a party in high school, we drank all my parents wine and liquor and in the morning there was pink vomit all over the yard. Fun cleanup in the hot sun while hungover!

bellaluna said...

When I was pregnant with my daughter, I had that severe morning sickness, and had the misfortune of working above a Burger King at the mall.

I haven't eaten at a Burger King in over 21 years, nor will I EVAH. It took me 7 years just to be able to drive past one. (The SMELL.)

Bee Haven said...

It's called taste aversion. I had chicken flavoured twisties in the back if the car in a windy mountain road, age 2. I still cannot abide even the smell. Gives me the heaves
(On a nicer note) Hi Anna!

Sandyjade V said...

I had a patty melt at a dive cafe. It made me sick. Now off the beaten path diners make me weary. Are there food quality standards up to par?

Sandyjade V said...

I also had alcohol poisoning. I threw up more than 40x's.

shopgirl said...

My worst was carne Adovada. Every hour, on the hour all night long and at the hospital. Not just gross but, ouch! All that spicy hot coming back up. Never again

Tina Mallette said...

Shrimp, after having no issue with shrimp, threw up after eating it two times in a row so I avoid it.

Egg and pasta aversion acquired in childhood. It's the texture makes me gag.

I have progressed a little on the pasta aversion - I can handle lasagna, gnoccis and ravoli but they have to be hot hot hot, lots of filling or meat and cheese. Once it gets lukewarm the gag response starts. I don't go out of my way to have it but you know you go to weddings and events or someone's house and this is what they serve I give it a try now.

Gayeld said...

I was just about to say no, then I saw this. Tequilla and I are no longer friends, haven't been for about 20 years. Two-faced bitch.

I got pretty sick from eating pepperoni pizza when I was little, like 6 or 7 years old. I was afraid to eat it again for a few years, but I got over it.

kit said...

@rowdyrodimus Me too on all cephalosporin-class antibiotics. Had a shot for some infection, and less than an hour later, I was giving a talk and folks came and grabbed me. I was no longer breathing - just gasping between sentences.

Food-wise: Din Ho. Austin Texas. Ate there weekly and then one night (peking duck with buns) it was over. Woke up to SO heaving at the toilet, I went in to see about him, and as I tried to get him a towel, I started in the sink. We were curled up for 3 days on the sofa together. Our bathroom(s) survived. Sadly, 1x outta 100 was enough. No more Din Ho.

Lastly - no Borden's Whole Milk, or anyone's whole milk at this point. Eternal vomit and cramping. no whole milk evahs.

DixieTheNoble82 said...

I'm always so late to the party. :^(

...Boiled peanuts. For the love of.....help me geezus. Vom.

Hi & welcome Anna!

skippy said...

No food poisoning but I can't look at a coco pop slice without feeling ill. I'm a bit that way with lamingtons too. Maybe it's the coconut thing.

skippy said...

Also our school used to get milk delivered in individual glass bottles left outside every classroom.
It was in Sydney. Very hot. Very gross in the sun.
I just can't
Thinking about it makes me retch!!
Bloody disgusting :(

Bee Haven said...

Skippy: my mum told me they used to give each child a bottle of milk when she went to school. Was it to build calcium?

Ms B'have said...

Bowling Alley pizza. Yuck!

LowKey said...

NEVER!!!!

Jennmcn said...

Southern Comfort when I was a teenager, just thinking about it turns my stomach. Blerg.

Cee Kay said...

Not a thing! Why blame delicious food for my sad-sack stomach?

Lady Heisenberg said...

Welcome @Anna! Hopefully your CDaN experience will be more positive than that time you ate chicken in high school! :)

Sherry said...

Teri is that you? Same here Dishy? Also gin. Cannot stand it. Got a lower intestinal from oysters for months but I will eat them to this day. I love them still.

Sherry said...

Anna, welcome and if that's yer picture you sho is cute.

I have a friend who is severely allergic to anything with feathers, the juice included. But ovo is fine. Any other foul that makes you sick? Curious about that.

Robin the Mad Photographer said...

Kashi Heart to Heart cereal (or whatever the Cheerios knockoff w/little hearts is called), and half a PBJ sandwich. I was going through a period of being inexplicably nauseated, was going out to a club, and thought I could handle this much...only time in 25+ years of clubbing that I've ever puked in a venue bathroom. *shudder* (Someone took a crowd shot photo w/me in it and used in on the headliner's website for several months; you can see me hanging onto one of the stage monitors and looking somewhat green at the gills.) The only restaurants I've ever gotten sick in were, oddly enough, Indian ones, and in both cases it wasn't the food that made me sick, and I still snarf Indian food quite happily.

Liquor I can no longer face: tequila. Tequila is NOT my friend, nosiree...July 1, 1989: my sister is visiting me for several weeks down in Athens, GA; it's her birthday, and she wants to go out and have frozen margaritas somewhere. First, though, we hit The Grill for some seriously greasy retro-dineresque chicken breast sandwiches and fries; then it was off to hit all the bars in downtown Athens, only to find that NONE of them had frozen margaritas (it HAD to be frozen, you see). Finally, we ended up at Gus Garcia's, a downtown Mexican restaurant that an acquaintance who washed dishes there called "Gus Gonorrhea's", so that's how I've always thought of it since. Yes, they had frozen margaritas, and served them in a wine carafe; you could get half a carafe or a full one, and my sister decided she wanted the full one, so OK. Get the carafe, try to pour it out, margarita is too frozen to pour; take it back up to the bar, whereupon the bartender grabs the nearest bottle of tequila, slugs a whole bunch in, chunks it up w/a bar spoon, and hands it back to me. My sister had most of the carafe, and I had one teeny half-glass...guess who was sick as a dog when we got home? I didn't actually throw up, but I probably should have; as it was, I was curled up on my bed in a fetal position while my sister yammered away on the phone in the next room with a friend of hers, all the while thinking "Please, Lord, just take me now!" So no, tequila is not my friend, and never ever will be, thankyouverymuch.

Sherry said...

SYF.. We are soul sistahs. I adore mayo and being southern it goes in everything my choco cake is to die for!

Sherry said...

I just want to say that this post has been the best ever to get a peak into all our loyal posters past vulnerable moments. Good GOD I love you guys!!!!

Sherry said...

BTW Enty I suggest a worst/best sexual experience ever. Now that would be awesome especially the worst. I'm sure there'd be lots of laughter AND tears.

Lady Heisenberg said...

Oh Sherry. I wasn't gunna share this because it is still too fresh and humiliating. But you know much I love entertaining you.

When I was around 16 I got food poisoning from a Big Mac in Prague and was really sick. I totally gave up meat for over 10 years. I only started to eat meat again a couple years ago when I was traveling and I am still kind of sensitive to red meat.

Several weeks ago, I was at a work function. I got super sick immediately after eating the catered fajitas. That's a San Diegan for you- we do NOT fuck around with the Mexican food and this stuff was grade D animal shite garbage. (I was starving, don't judge). I've never eaten anything that just immediately needed out. I tried to sneak out an emergency exit and sprint for the bathroom but this security asshole told me I had to go out the other way. I totally didn't make it and puked all over a bush in front of about 50 grad students and postdocs. Fucking mortifying. The worst part was that I'm sure people thought I was drunk but I had NOTHING to drink yet. At least beer would've helped it come up smoother and made me less horrified. I was so sick.

Prunella Buggerweeds said...

Since we're being gross I'm remembering my last vomit session 20 years ago. I forget what caused it. But I remember waking up in the middle of the night thinking "Oh, I'm going to throw up." Then I didn't. An hour later, "Oh, I'm REALLY going to throw up now." Then I didn't.

Third time was the charm.

I was wearing a nice flannel nightgown, I knelt in front of the porcelain throne and heaved so violently that I peed all over myself, the floor and my nightgown. So I put it in the sink to wash it and then got in the bathtub to clean myself off, then went back to bed.

Initially I felt great. Then over the next 45 minutes I realized I had another round of vomiting to go.

Same thing, peed all over myself.

Fortunately I had several clean nightgowns!

The feeling right after emptying myself out and getting into bed all clean in a fresh warm nightgown was indescribably lovely.

But I had a couple more rounds to go. Then I slept all the next day, I was so weak. A friend brought me juice and chicken soup.

That was the last time I threw up.

I have to say, the moment before I threw up was worse than the actual vomiting - THAT was a relief, albeit temporary the first three times.

Trashaddict said...

OK, this was actually the result of a viral illness when I was a kid but the food itself was so gross that I wonder I ever ate it and it tops anything here. My best friend's mom made us a meal, part of which was a SALAD (wait for it-) made with about 1 inch cubes of balogna, ice-berg lettuce, and vinaigrette dressing. Add to that the peanut butter cookies afterward and you can imagine what came up that night. That was over 40 years ago, made quite an impression!

Ansley Henderson said...

I got food poisoning from canned corn and couldn't eat it for years! I lost my sense of smell and taste from a head injury now my husband has to smell and taste all of my food for me before I will eat it. I hate it so much!

Erik said...

Sunchips. They weren't why I got sick but ever since that time even the sight of them make me wanna puke.

Dena said...

I have to say, you are missing out.

teresa crane said...

I got salmonella from chicken once - probably the sickest I've ever been

I'm a veggie now so yeah no chicken for me

Tequila is also the worst. I cannot even smell it without feeling ill

J-Mo said...

Mock chicken loaf sandwich twice when I was a kid. Coincidence? I don't think so! I don't miss it. It prob wasn't even food poisoning but a natural response to mock chicken loaf.

PotPourri said...

Can't eat Swedish Meatballs ever again. Nor can I eat Fried Oysters. I've given up seafood, except for Tuna Fish Sandwiches and Fried Catfish. Been sick too many times!

Count Jerkula said...

I no longer get tap beer in hole in the wall bars. 1.5 pitchers of skinked/dirty lines Yuengling had be hallucinating, puking and pooping for about 8hours. On the bright side, I should be able to make it through a peyote trip if I ever stumble across the stuff.
