Things to Remember—Calm Your Food Poisoning!
I’ve gotten food poisoning a few times now over my 20 years (I don’t have it right now, don’t worry!) and boy, does it suck like hell. You literally feel like you’re dying and you’ll be dry heaving within a few hours. It’s thoroughly unpleasant, and is one of those things you just have to wait out. There’s not much of a ‘cure’ for food poisoning. It’s like a cold, you just have to sit it out.
But there’s a tip to lessening the pain!
Basically, what you’ll want to do is grab a Sprite or any clear soda (colas don’t work as well) and drink it. You’d be surprised the wonders it works. Any time when your poor poisoned stomach is feeling max shitty and threatening upchuck, just take a swing, and it will calm your stomach immediately. It isn’t a permanent fix, but the carbonation in Sprite and clear sodas help it be a little more tolerable.
I’m recalling this because all my instances of food poisoning have happened on road trips, and I’m about to trek to San Francisco. So it came to mind!
