Sunday I ate a salad out (don't want to say where) and got wicked, WICKED food poisoning. Today is Thursday and I am just starting to feel a tiny bit better. I am starting to get an appetite, but I don't want to eat-- I am afraid of food. When I see commercials for restaurants-- it makes me queasy, I am terrified if I ate there I might get sick. I am even suspicious of the stuff in my garden. I know it's stupid-- I wonder how long this will last?

Did you see your doctor to make sure you aren't harboring a parasite and are really recovering? Would your doctor report the issue to the board of health to make sure the restaurant was inspected for sanitation? All it takes is for one food handler to have contaminated hands to get a whole bunch of people sick. Or for one delivery of salad greens to do the same.

Yes, I did see my doctor. and she ran tests, and is treating me. Also I did report the restaurant and it is being investigated. Just wondering for how long will I be traumatized about food

I got pretty wicked food poisoning on scallops a few years ago. I still cannot eat scallops.

My thoughts exactly! Suspected food poisoning should be reported.

Became ill sophomore year in college, along with 90% of four dormitories. Still cannot eat those foods. 55years.

This is so interesting. I haven't had food poisoning but I feel exactly the same as you do about food. I've never been a germaphobe but restaurants are starting to make me nauseated. I can't stand to use the salt and pepper shakers...so many hands have caressed those things, especially the ones you have to twist. Ugh. And so many recalls on various food items makes one afraid to go to the grocery store. Unfortunately I find myself throwing food out...a practice I hate to admit to.
People are so nasty … licking ice cream, peeing on potatoes for the unsuspecting customer. I don't have an answer to this dilemma. But IMO you're NOT being stupid.

I hope you are feeling better now. Might have been a good idea to get some tests to identify what caused the problem. Might save you from more after effects or save someone else.

You & me both about restaurants.....in fact it's kinda why I don't like to eat out much....and not only the s&p shakers but the condiments that sit out all day & are just refilled....yuck....

I got food poisoning from lemon chicken at a Chinese restaurant once and it was years before I could even look at any chinese food. I can eat it now but I still don't enjoy it.

I can think of two restaurants in this area in which I got food poisoning. I have never gone back to either one. Another place where friends asked me to join them for lunch had a filthy carpet. I didn't get food poisoning but I thought if the place where people eat is dirty, what is the kitchen like? And where are the health inspectors? I know I am picky about these things but I was brought up by a super clean mother. And I don't like to catch a glimpse of a chef wearing a dirty apron. Luckily, there are lots of places to eat here so don't have to go back to any that put me off.

What about the menu. I’ve read it is one of the dirtiest things on the table. I always carry GermX sanitizing wipes and wipe my hands after touching the menu or anything else. I always check the utensils for dried food- - you’d be surprised! Like others, I don’t enjoy going out so much anymore.

Over 15 years later I still do not want to eat at restaurants. I do, very reluctantly. You will just learn to live with it, sadly.

And hubby works in food service, so he totally understands where I am coming from.

They have been saying on tv that one should be wary of prepared salads because of what you've just experienced..Hygiene is very important in handling foods. Wash all fruits and vegetables before consuming. Even the pet dog treats have been the cause of contamination and can even spread to humans..So you have to very careful as a lot of the food products, vegetables and fruit are imported...Hope you're on the mend and be wary...
