I am a big snacker during work and mainly eat Cliff bars and granola bars saving the real meal until I got home. The same was true on Wed., but I tried a new peanut based granola bar. It was all that I ate during my 12 hour shift delivering mail. By the end of the shift, I started feeling a little cramped up and bought groceries on the way home. I was starting to cook dinner when I felt the need to vomit....and I did. In fact, I hurled 53 times over the next 8 hours before falling asleep on the bathroom floor. All of Thursday was spent with terrible diarrhea every 15-20 minutes untl about 10 pm last night. Thankfully, the chills ended and I was able to crawl into bed and get some sleep with just a couple of interruptions. I managed to leave the house this morning to see the doctor who told me that he has seen 2 cases this month involving food poisioning with peanut butter as the suspect. I don't recall the brand of the bar that I ate, but it was peanuts, peanut butter, and granola mixed. All that I know is that it damn near killed me! Still far from good, but at least I can get out of the bathroom again. Sure, it might have just been something that I touched as I do touch over 300 mail box lids throughout the day, but I am pretty OCD about handling food without clean hands. All that I know is that I felt fine at the start of the day and the worst I have ever felt by the end of it.
