Sleepless in Seattle revisited

30 03 2009

Was it something I ate? I haven’t slept more than a few minutes at a time all night. I’ve felt nauseous to the point of putting the trash can by the bed — just in case. Last night a group of us went to dinner at a seafood restaurant, so perhaps any of the crab cakes, potato and halibut soup, grilled halibut, or the assortment of desserts was to blame. Perhaps not too. Who knows? All I know is that I haven’t had much/any sleep and I have to do my presentation later today!

If I feel sleepy during the sessions today, do I consume more caffeine (Diet Coke) or come up to the room to grab an hour or so’s sleep?

In the meantime, I’ve taken two Tums to try to settle my stomach. BTW, it’s not nerves. I know how my body deals with ‘stage fright’ nerves — and it’s not like this.

Update: At least two other people at the table also were sick last night, and the organiser has called the restaurant to let them know. we think the common element was the crab cakes or the sauce that went with it, but there were some who ate the crab cakes and didn’t get sick. But there’s no other common element that we can figure out.

You poor thing. It’s horrible feeling sick anytime, but it seems so much worse when you’re away from home, doesn’t it? I hope your presentation goes swimmingly and you get a wonderful night’s sleep tonight.

Gosh Rhonda, today will probably be VERY long for you. I’m sure despite it all your session will go really well and boy will you sleep well tonight.
Enjoy the rest of your trip.
