I have only ever had it once while holidays in Europe - in the country in Austria - I touch wood as I say it.
I was going to book to take my family on a cruise and had picked the ship, time, etc, when I turned on the news and there was an article on Norovirus and the dreadful things that happened on the ship I was going to book on!
So, home I stay.
Not to my knowledge. Himself got a dose a few years ago and I will never forget it. I thought he would die. Doctor in the middle of the night, lost nearly 5 kilos . . . it was horrifying - the flow just would not stop. He was off work for nearly a week. This makes me think I have never had it. Amen.
oh yes !! I have had it many times ! You just feel so terrible, and wish the world would end. If I knew what the kitchens looked like where my food is prepared, I would probably never eat out again !! You just have to hope for the best when dining out, and usually you will be fine.
Yes, I've had it twice. The first time I was around 16 and I was in London - it was fried rice that must not have been heated properly. The second time was in New York from a restaurant in Little Italy.
I feel I may of had it once, buying a chicken a few years ago from woolies, both me and my husband suffered, when I went back to tell them, the lady behind the desk didn't want to accept it, and at the same time she had a real nasty cold, I will never forget that.
No I have never had food poisoning. By the looks of the comments I hope never to have it. Must admit I do have a iron stomach and I will try and eat anything once, of course if it is food suitable for humans
Yes. The first time I gave blood I had a dodgy meal from a shopping centre food court afterwards and was very sick. I was as upset about them having to dump my blood donation (they have to if you get sick within 24 hours I think, in case there's something in your blood) as I was about all the vomiting. It's not pleasant. I try to be careful about food hygiene at home but there are no guarantees when you eat out.
My mum & I were having a weeks holiday in Mexico City on our way to NYC then to Boston for a friends wedding, in '68. For 1/2 a night, & 1 whole day I was throwing up! I can't remember what I'd eaten to cause it, but I thought I'd never be well again!
