Thursday Thirteen: Salmonella Edition

Thirteen Things about FOOD POISONING!

  1. Cook your bratwursts thoroughly, people. Trust me on this one.

  2. When blood shows up, just go ahead and go to the hospital. Don't wait it out hoping it will get better on it's own. All that does is prolong the agony.

  3. When I told my mom that I can't imagine childbirth being as painful as that experience, she laughed and said I'm in for a rude awakening. But then I was told that Jane Seymore said the same thing about her food poisoning last week, and she's given birth to TWINS, so I think she should know.

  4. Ambulances are roomier inside than I expected.

  5. Here's a fun piece of trivia I picked up at the ER: apparently redheaded women are, like, super-bleeders.

  6. I was treated in the same "resuscitation room" they put me in after my fainting spell, which means I once again had the pleasure of staring at the same Golden Plastic Jesus on the wall whilst I floated away into drug-induced bliss.

  7. Antibiotics are a blessing for which I shall ever be grateful.

  8. Ditto strong painkillers.

  9. A diet of Gatorade and soup gets old pretty fast.

  10. The sympathy of co-workers gets stretched pretty thin when you visit the ER twice within a month.

  11. With husbands it's less so, but I did have to give him a pass on accompanying me on the next non-life-threatening trip to the ER if it occurs when he has a test to study for and a ton of homework to get done.

  12. Of course I completely understand his frustration, because this whole thing seriously cut into my NaNo time.

  13. But I'm feeling much better now.
