Maybe I need an icon of someone being sick

Yes, I'm sick again. I still say food-related, but the big tell there will be if Curt's sick too. I've stopped throwing up for the moment, but I'm pretty sure there's more to come... the flavor of my burps is a bad indicator. If Curt's miraculously okay after eating most of the same foods I had, I may try to make my way to the clinic either today or later this week (which would mean taking a few sick days and probably hunting for a family doctor who can fit me in) to get checked out for anything that might have started since the last time I was scanned for every medical problem in existence.

I'm also drinking water that was filtered quite some time ago. If that runs out, I'm in trouble, but I've had enough of stomach acid coming up empty. That, and I think the valve that prevents stuff from running up my throat may be defective - I was feeling stuff come up my throat long before I threw up, and the amount of liquid pouring freely from my mouth when I leaned forward didn't seem in proportion to normal salivation. Then again, I salivate way too much when I'm sick and have to keep spitting it out, because I'm afraid to swallow it. My flatulence also smells much worse than normal, but that's been going on for a few days, and I wasn't throwing up then. I've been feeling for a long time that the body is just something to give the mind a burdensome physical presence and is only holding me back, but that feeling is about a thousand times stronger when I feel like this. And the worst part is that I FEEL just fine. Aside from the lingering knowledge that, before too long, I WILL be throwing up again, and it's not going to be much more than water and stomach acid. I could almost go to work today, and I still might, if I'm feeling up to it by then. But I didn't get enough sleep, so being on the road that long, that early won't be very safe. I'd be more productively employed cleaning up my room a bit and trying to eliminate some allergens.
