Food poisoning...

Woke up at about 11:00 pm with a stomachache and nausea. Went digging around for the bottle of activated charcoal capsules, but couldn't find them. Guess I was out. (Activated charcoal absorbs toxins and bad stuphs, so I always take some when my stomach bothers me.)

Laid in bed feeling miserable for an hour, then decided I might as well go to the local 24 hour Rite Aid and pick up something.

Bought the pills ($13 for a bottle of 100, feh!), and took a handful in the car. I started to drive home, but I barely got halfway across the parking lot before I got hit with a wave of nausea. I quickly parked next to a planter and sat with the door open, in the rain, trying not to throw up the pills I just took. After a while, my nausea dropped off until I figured I wasn't in immediate danger of barfing all over the place, so I drove home.

I have to get up to go to work in about 5 hours. I can't take anything to help me sleep, as the activated charcoal would just absorb it. I can't call in sick tomorrow, because a programmer is going to be in to take a look at our database to see if he can make his web apps work with it.

I don't know what could have caused this. Breakfast was half a loaf of bread and some cream cheese. Lunch was the other half of the loaf of bread and a Cup Noodle. Dinner was rice made with a can of Progresso chicken soup. I'm wondering if it could have been the latter; maybe there was a reason they were 10 for $10. :(
