It sounds like you have food poisoning...if it lasts for much longer (like an HR) you need to go to the hospital! You will become severly dehydrated! Have a friend for family member take you. I had it a few years was horrid! And I went to the hospitsl. They hooked me up to IV to rehydrate 3 or 4 bags worth and gave me medication to stop the vomiting and diahrea. They also gave me demerol to relax my stomach muscles mecause they were cramping so badly and it also helped me sleep...I alept for aboup 8 hrs in the ER. Demerol was great! It took me a while to recover...I was eating crackers and Gatoraid for 4-5 was all I could manage...and I lost almost 20lbs in about 3 weeks...Food poisoning is REALLY hard on the body! PLEASE!!!!! Go get it checked!!!!!!!

Go, I'm so sorry you feel horribly during a time that seems so special to you....

Not to be crass...but, hey maybe this is some bizarre Karmatic way of cleansing yourself???

SORRY, that was horrible I know, but I was hoping it might just elicit a small chuckle????


Feel better, drink lots of nourishing liquids!


Fill with mingled cream and amber,
I will drain that glass again.
Such hilarious vis
