I don't think as an adult i've ever been sick like this. I woke up this morning and felt a little strange. I came out and felt nauseous and then it hit. For a split second I thought I was throwing up a bucket full of blood. then I realized I drank a lot of shasta strawberry soda. It was also mixed with food of course.

I proceeded to throw up 4 more time in the next 5 hours. My stomach wasn't really in pain, but whenever I was about to vomit I felt discomfort.
Towards the end I started vomiting yellow bile. If I drank water I threw it up too.
So feeling a little weakened I laid on my hallway floor right by the bathroom for the next 5 or so hours. I knew it wasn't completely over because when I sat up my stomach felt weird again.
However I at 4 crackers and drand some ginger ale. I thought it was over, but just about 10:00pm I threw up again. Bile and I guess the ale. I feel a bit better, but my stomach stills feels a bit out of wack.

I've been looking up things and came across gi infection or food poisening. I have no idea. All I know is I ate at McD's saturday and Friday I ate a piece of fish without warming it up first.

I certainly hope it's just a 24 hour bug or something.
I didn't want to run to the hospital because I am unemployed with no insurance. Matter of fact that's what I was supposed to do all this week, I have job leads.
However, feeling like this I never know when it's going to come out. Any thoughts on what this sounds like?
