    'You've got puke on your face, big disgrace, chucking your burgers all over the place!' I'd had this burger from a food van and threw it away after a couple of mouthfuls because it didn't taste right. That was the song my step brother had made up when I'd been sick several times...

    I feel absolutely terrible.

    I ate a piece of basically raw hamburger today on accident. And I feel like my body is trying to turn inside out. I honestly don't feel like seeming my guts today. Any ideas for help?
