Wednesday, I had a double cheeseburger, fries, tea, and cappuccino. Thursday stomach never hurt so badly. I was nauseated all day. I could not hold down water. Bossman wouldn't stop calling, so I forced fluids in and I somehow forced myself into some clothes and in the car. I was finally able to hold down some cola syrup and I'm feeling better, but my stomach hurts a little.

After eating a sandwich last night stomach cramps followed within three hours of eating the sandwich. Vomiting occurred all night last night and has continued all day today. Cannot keep additional light meals down. (Attempted to eat watermelon and a banana, but vomiting reoccurred. The sandwich was an Italian BMT. So far no fever or diarrhea.

I went to a pizza place last night for dinner. I ate pizza and a few hours later I woke up vomiting with watery stools. I was so weak, I can't explain it. Of everyone who ate the pizza, I was the sickest because I ate the most.

Three days ago I flew home to Sweden from Paris. I felt fine, and went out drinking that night (excessively) with friends. I woke up the next morning with a fever, diarrhea, severe stomach cramps, and felt very weak. It got worse throughout the day and in the night I vomited, although this only occurred once while I was sick. I think it was either the drinking or the crap I ate at the airport (the sandwich was sitting there pre-made for God only knows how long). It took over 48 hours for the symptoms to begin to subside.

I have food poisoning and it is the worst feeling ever. Tuesday night I went to bed and was awaken by having bad gas and bloating feeling. Within no time I spend the rest of the evening throwing up every hour and have a loose stool at the same time. By Wednesday I still felt very weak and bad pains in my stomach I threw up one more time on Wednesday. I have stopped the vomiting and no loose stool and today Friday I feel better but still have pains in my stomach from throwing up so much and hard.
