I was the only one to pick at this dish of "chicken and noodles" sort of her take on chicken and dumplings. We were opening gifts and all of a sudden it hit me. I got hot and pale and clammy.

I excused myself. I ran to the bathroom. I stayed there for 15 minutes. :-(

It was awful. I still feel queasy today. And I have to work for 12 hours.

Thank goodness for Imodium.

I'm sorry :(

Everyone in my house has the flu, the baby got it and spread it around.  My doctor told me yesterday that I also have bronchitis.  Thankfully my boss is letting me go home once everyone gets in for the day.

Imodium is not the answer. Your body is trying to get rid of something it doesn't like. By taking Imodium, you are stopping the runs, but keeping the virus or whatever it is in your intestines even longer. Take ginger capsules to calm the tummy and keep drinking clear fluids until this passes.

Did anyone else get sick from the food?

I hope that you feel better soon.  Something like that happened to my son at the movies the other day and we were all eating the same food. He had some sort of 24  hour bug, they felt better a few days and they had a couple more bad days

Food poisoning takes 12-48 hours to show up. You probably just have a nasty 24 hour bug.

Taking immodium will make it last longer. Good luck.
