Diving and Food Poisoning an explosive mixture

After eating the food on a trip up Mount Sinai I came down with a nasty case of food poisoning. Let`s just say I lost around 10 pounds over a few days and leave it at that. But I just couldn`t pass up a chance at some bottom time. Now, I`m sure most of us have joked about some off gassing being louder than others as pressure changes wreaked havoc on our insides. So I`m betting you can imagine what it`s like when you aren`t well. I don`t recommend the experience to anyone, ever tried getting out of a wetsuit in a hurry?

Sorry for the sick topic, but after the no dive sited post on the buddy board, my mind is in a very sick place. Anyway, think long and hard before you put yourself in that situation. They say that a wise person learns from the mistakes of others.
