I spent a good part of today between my bed and bathroom, still not 100% since a bout with (apparent) food poisoning. Three days ago it was vomiting, profuse sweating, lightheadedness, weakness, etc. Today it is punishing my bowels. I remain lethargic but am eating, carefully, nothing spicy or with a lot of fibre.
I believe I contracted salmonella from some pre-packaged coleslaw from Belleisle Farms in New Brunswick. The timing fits, and the symptoms fit. I did some research and found that Canada issued a recall September 2018 for this exact same product from the same farm because of Listeria contamination. Seems someone isn't handling things cleanly enough. I reported my experience on-line, and the right Canadian authorities are looking into it and have asked me to save the remainder of the package contents for testing.
Food poisoning usually runs it's course in 5-7 days, so I should be back to normal soon.
I so hope you are feeling so much better ASAP. I really can't stand those tummy disturbances.
