Stomach Ache - The Life and Thoughts of Zach

Previous Entry Share Next Entry

So last night I had a really upset stomach. While I was unable to sleep, hanging out in the bathroom, hoping something would happen to make it go away...I realized that I haven't actually thrown up since before high school. I don't have any real memory of what it is like right before you throw up. I sat in front of the toilet thinking it might "just happen" but it didn't. I think I've forgotten how to throw up. Luckily I feel better now, even having not thrown up.

I don't know if it was the alcoholic milk shake, the shot of whiskey, the muffins, the pizza, the singing, the water drank from a glass I later discovered was a little dirty, or what. It really sucked though.

Alcoholic milk shake? That just sounds horrible.

I'd had the exact same drink the night before and was totally fine. Maybe it was the two nights in a row double whammy. Plus the first night it was on a full stomach and the second night I put the food on top of the boozey shake which was initially on an empty stomach.

Oh well. I survived, didn't puke, and feel fine now.

I can continue to pride myself on never having puked from alcohol. :)

By all accounts it was delicious! I loved it and everyone I made them for loved them. Baileys, Kahlua, and Knob Creek with milk and bryers natural vanilla ice cream.

You can barely taste the alcohol but one glass has like 3 shots worth of booze in it.

I've had food poisoning twice. Both times resulted in that horrible putrescent feeling of wanting to throw up but it just not happening.

In those cases, I try to wait for it to happen naturally for as long as I can take it.

Then it's the ol' finger down the throat.

See I have very little gag reflex (or at least sticking the tooth brush way back to reach my incoming wisdom teeth doesn't cause any problems as others have told me it causes them) as it is so I'd probably have to stick that finger way back there and I just couldn't do that any more than I could stick a needle in myself. I mean I knew puking would help if it happened naturally but I knew that if I didn't puke naturally it'd probably work itself out if I just took it easy and tried to sleep. Which is what happened.

Oh, it's not easy - by any means. I gotta stick my finger down my throat and THEN waggle it around a buncha times.

It's gross and horrific and the twice I've done it I've only done so after trying to deal with the agony for as long as I can.

Hmm, the two times I've had food poisoning it manifested itself with a very definite and urgent message from my body that "YOU HAVE TO THROW UP RIGHT NOW!!" I totally hate throwing up too, and refuse to do it even though I'm sure it'd make me feel better. But I wasn't given any choice those times.

Also, the times that I've been woozy and nauseated, but unable to throw up, have been after drinking on a relatively empty stomach. Don't know if that's a good data point for Zach or not.

other than the shot and the "dirty" glass, i ate everything you did and i didn't get sick, so you can narrow it down to those.

I used to throw up a lot as a kid. I internalized stress. (still do, now it just manifests itself as IBS and other fun stuff.

I'll remind you, just in case. The very last sensation you have before you yak is one of pure water-wetness in your mouth. That's pretty much when it just blows.

All I have to do to puke is think of my worst nightmare. **gulp**
here goes:

picture a 2-year old, full diapers... **hold breath** doing that mock-walk thing that 2-year olds do... raising it's little stubby arms with the shiny green, sticky fingers... **gulp** saying, "Kith me! Kith me!" with a huge snot bubble growing from it's nose...brb.

Thank god for towels and toothbrushes. I'm going to bed now.
