Breaking News

My stomach hates me and in angry protest has denied food. I currently have the Pepto Police standing by to keep the protesting in order. However, earlier this morning a fiery rampage let loose but it is now somewhat under control once the Bismol division of the Pepto Police stepped in. The protest rages on but it should subside within the next few days.

I haven't been sick with a stomach flu like this since one incident 14 years ago. I generally use sheer will power not to vom (as when Kieu and I had minor food poisoning from unhappy sushi) but this was too much. My stomach is still really irritated so I;m not eating any solids right now, just sticking with the water and peptmo.

ginger and peppermint teas are great for stomach upset...if you can't keep down tea, hard candies work as well.
No pun intended, but I simply can't stomach pepto...it tends to encourage my nausea as opposed to suppressing it.

I hope you feel better soon.

We only had pepto and probiotics on hand I generally prefer teas but I was all out =( and sending my hubby out to get some is a whole hassle that I didn't want to deal with. But I'm feeling much better now and I got some ginger loaded goodness today. Thank you for your concern I appreciate it and your wisdom about the hard candy alternative too.
