Yes, not long ago. Chicken salad from Chick Filet. I went back to work for about an hour and my whole system.... emptied. I left and started for home and had to pull over. I thought I was going to have to call an ambulance to come get me off the freeway. The only time it hurt that bad was when I drank the water in the Philippines.

Let me just say...I never ordered another McDonald's Filet-o-Fish sandwich since those horrible 36 hours in the '70's...

Yes, twice. Once from a local pizzeria (rice ball with meat) and another time from Applebees, I had chicken with pasta. Both AWFUL experiences and I never ate at either place again.

Yes, twice. Once from beef and once from shrimp. The post-shrimp experience was about the worst illness I've ever had of any type - I couldn't keep water down and was so weak I couldn't make it up stairs; I even had a very difficult time simply getting out of bed. It was at a major chain restaurant about 10 years ago and I have yet to eat at any of their locations again.

I do still eat both shrimp and beef.

That sucks. I can eat onions but only in moderation. I can't eat onion rings. I also think I digest green onions better but I also have to eat them in moderation. I like onions but I don't mind cooking without them.

I got food poisoning after drinking some milkshakes at a local bakery. The bakery probably didn't store the milk properly.

When I was fifteen, my mom, my sister, and I went to an amusement park about 40 miles away. For lunch, we bought pieces of pizza from a stand there. The next morning, all three of us were intensely sick and weak. All we could eat or drink for the next two or three days was the occasional piece of crushed ice. It was awful.

Later, in my late twenties, my sister and I went to a new Chinese buffet and thought it was very good, but a few hours later, we both got violently ill. Silly us; we eventually dismissed the experience as a stomach bug we both caught at the same time and returned to the buffet for a second try. After all, the food certainly did seem fresh and hot! But the same thing happened. We never went back after that.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, both the amusement park and buffet place have since closed down.

I got E-Coli poisoning from a Golden Corral in Waco Texas a decade ago that has forever altered my ability to enjoy food. I got extremely ill with a temperature of 106 and was in and out of consciousness for several days. I almost died due to extreme dehydration. I am hesitant to even eat buffet food thanks to this experience. I also got a case of food poisoning a few years ago but I wasn't sure of the restaurant it came from as I had ate out for 3 previous meals in a row and any could have been responsible.

Yes, and so did several of my colleagues (one of whom chose to blog about his experience). The Health Department came out eventually and gave them a "B" rating for several months.

I also got sick every time I ate guacamole at Taste of Chicago - I wanted to think it was a coincidence, but after 3 times, I got the message.

I also got sick from eating fish tacos from Rubios Coastal Grill, immediately ill and nauseous!

More than a few times. The worst was when I got caught up in the salmonella outbreak of 1989 in England. I had two eggs at the Happy Eater (the UK version of Denny's) and then drove to a town 200 miles away to interview a suspect.

Shortest interview in history. Two minutes into his denial I told him I was deathly ill and the interview was ending in 60 seconds. He could either man up and admit he committed the fraud I'd proven or continue to lie and I'd arrest him for that, too.

He 'fessed up, I reported to his (military commander) boss what he'd done and I went back to my hotel room to resume my close protection assignment on the commode. Spent five more days there before I was well enough to drive back home.

Nothing will give you "monkey butt" like salmonellosis. I had salmonellosis that kept me in porcelain worship for an entire week.
