  • I have, twice. Once from a Chinese restaurant that I went to. The second was after I bought some meat "on special" and it was bad, but I didn't realize it until after we all got sick in the house :/ The second was really bad; I had to go to the ER and get treated for dehydration.

  • I got it bad from eating a burger from this place called Ethel's. That whole experience was worse than childbirth for me.

  • Yes, from Subway. I ate it on the way home from visiting my parents. It was a LONG drive...what normally took us five hours, took eight agonizing hours. We had to make a pit stop at every other town. UGH!

  • Once. Sadly enough, it was neither restaurant nor home cooked. It was a salad. The greens had gone bad, but when I threw the salad together that morning, I didn't notice the slimy texture, and I had a cold, so I couldn't smell anything. Tossed it all in a bowl, added dressing, ate lunch at lunch time and spent the rest of the afternoon and all evening in the bathroom. The drive home, with two pitstops to pick up kids, was soooo much fun.

  • I had salmonella once. I was in the hospital for 4 days. I prefer to never do that again.

  • Yep. Me and my mom got food poisoning from eating at Burger King when I was a teen. It sucked and I hope to never have to go through that again.

  • My husband did on Valentine's Day 2008. He took me to our local Red Lobster for the first time for a dinner date and we enjoyed a very nice meal. Within hours he was on his hands and knees in the bathroom vomiting into the toilet and sitting on it with the runs. He was so sick all night long! We never ate there again.
