I made some raw granola like 2 weeks ago I guess, and have been nibbling at it off and on since. Today I didn’t have my normal breakfast of a green smoothie, cuz my gums have been horrifically irritated, raw itchy and bleeding. I thought it might be the acid from all the fruit I eat. My gums feel better tonight. But I had a sizeable bowl of the grawnola for breakfast and then nibbled more in the afternoon. The AM bowl I had with conventional cow’s milk, b/c the nut milk I had left at work had expired and gone bad. I’ve had a few little bits of dairy here and there, but that’s the first time I’ve really had any straight up milk in probably at least a month. (I was amazed at how unappetizing it tastes to me now, I used to be a dairy junkie). I also was coming off a night of 4 hours sleep and MASSIVE emotional upheaval so I was exhausted and barely functioning to start with. :(
By afternoon my tummy was feeling funky and I was a little nauseous here and there. I’ve also been getting that weird flu like feeling where your skin feels ubersensitive and any touch seens to both hurt and make your skin itself feel nauseous, and all you want to do is curl up in a blanket and not move. Know what I’m talking about? I don’t know how else to describe it. I was burping alot at the end of the workday too.
By the time around 630pm rolled around I was seriously sick to my stomach and having all manner of gurgles and pain and gross feelings and felt like I was about to throw up. I’ve been in the bathroom like every half hour if not less since then and passing massive amounts of liquid and bits. 2 hours ago I threw up what felt like everything I’ve ever eaten. Working in an animal hospital taught me to always examine what’s coming out of you as a clue to what’s going on inside, gross as that seems, but…it appeared I was vomitting and passing the granola almost whole. I could see complete grains and whole goji berries among other more unidentifiable matter, it seemed to have sat in my stomach and intestines for hours almost completely undigested.
Could the granola have gone bad and developed some sort of harmful bacteria that fast? I didn’t refrigerate it. I want to blame it on that since while I did have milk for the first time in a while, I hadn’t reacted to other bits of dairy, and honestly it was like 1/4 cup at most. And then the granola coming out whole?
I feel like totaly crap right now and am in sweats curled up under 2 blankets, which I NEVER do, I get hot really easily. But I don’t appear to have a fever or the sweats or anything.
Any ideas? I’m thinking I might just not really eat tomorrow and just drink water and try to flush my system. I got a papaya to eat to help digestion, but the idea of eating anything now is not appetizing in the least.
