Arggghhh! I don’t know what it is, but our family keeps coming down with these stomach illnesses. I’m just getting over weeklong nausea/diarrhea, and ds had bout of vomiting the other day.
NO MORE OUTSIDE FOOD (I really mean it this time)!!! It’s not like we’re addicted to eating out. It’s really occasional, like when I’m too tired to cook. I usually cook 6-7 days out of the week. Anyway, if you do order out, avoid salads and sauces! They are some main culprits of food-borne illnesses. The salads don’t get washed enough, and the sauces sit out too long. Grilled, fried, or broiled meat is likely to be ok, just because it’s been cooked at high temps.
I’m also going to get more serious about washing fruits and veggies. I already do a thorough job, but now I’m going to wash the cukes BEFORE I cut them. I may even soak some of the stuff in vinegar to disinfect it.
I don’t want to go overboard, but it’s very frustrating, frightening even to have something making you ill, and you don’t know what it is. I don’t have any desire to go to the doctor, cause they don’t know either. LOL, I remember how one brother described a visit. Shorter than the time it takes to recite Surah Al-Kauthar.
It kind of makes you paranoid and you start looking at everything to see if it makes you sick. Like the bottled water. I swear it tastes weird lately. Sigh….
Dh and dd both agree the Nestle taste’s strange lately. I wonder what’s going on with that? Lately it’s also hard to find, most stores are out.
I spoke with a sister and she said that lot of other people here have complained of recurring stomach illness. She said she’s wondered about pesticides!?!
