I went to a friend gathering last eve. and had brisket BBQ. Then for desert I had crem brulia (a custurd). Well I had tooo much to eat and I guess my stomache could not handle it. I got home and was sick as a dog. I can't believe it was so violent, but it was. I almost wanted to call up and ask what was in the food, but I thought that would be a little rude. What would you do. WOuld you call and ask or just forget it

That sounds like food poisoning to me. I think I would either ask someone else that had gone to the gathering if the same had happened to them, or call the host/hostess and ask them if I couldn't reach anyone else. I don't think it would be rude to mention it to them. I know that if I were hosting a party, and someone got sick, I would like to be informed. But that's just me. I hope you're feeling better hon.

I might call the friend & see if they got sick. If I knew anyone else I'd call & say - 'great to see you, it was fun, hows about you?" type stuff & see if they mention getting sick.

hmmm I don't think I would call them and tell them I think I would just wear it but I guessyou could say that you were a little ill and just wanted to know if anyone else was sick so you could eliminate that particular food....maybe, some people would get upset...

If it is indeed a friend then communication would not be out of line. You are adjusting and on medications, maybe that made a difference. Still wouldn't hurt to ask and see if anyone else made any comments about how they may have been sick or not. Good luck with this and hope it was just your body adjusting.

I don't think I would let it go any further. If it was food poisoning, someone else, or several people will get sick. You might sort of ask around with others that were there before mentioning it to the host. If you appear to be the only one, then it may have just been an individual reaction. That is a very "rich" desert and can cause that response in people if it is something new to them..

If I was just a 'little' sick I'd probably just forget about it but if it was 'violent' I would have to call....maybe there was something you were allergic to or something that was bad in the food.....I think I'd think twice before eating there again....

if it were a friends I would just forget it , they probably went to a lot of bother and it might just have been you who ate too much , as long as you don't have any lasting effects pal xx

if it was only like a 12 to 24 hour bug thing then no i wouldn't call because it could just have been that something did not settle in your belly right, but if it hangs on for a couple days then it could be food poisoning and then yes i would call to find out if anyone else had gotten sick.

I don't think it would be rude to call. If you were that sick you should definitely call and let them know you were sick. You could find out if it was an isolated incident or if anyone else felt sick. If you feel bad asking about the food being the cause, you could say I wanted to tell you how sick I was and I hope I don't have anything contagious. Hope you are feeling better by now.
