    Yes, I know there are probably other discussions under the same topic (or topic of that nature) but it would have taken a life time to scroll through 63 pages so…

    Last week exactly I accidentally ate turkey meat. It was sloppy joe night and I mistook the turkey meat for veggie imitation meat. I had never had turkey meat before becoming a vegetarian and even if so, I’ve not eaten meat in so long I’ve forgotten what it taste like. So about 2-3 bites into this burger the cook stops me. I felt HORRIBLE for the bird and I’m guessing thats where the nausea came in but luckily I never threw up because gagging gives me mean headaches. I also too felt bad that the cook felt so bad but its all good. It was only a accident plus thats happened to me a many times before (soup bases mostly!) Immediately when I get home I felt very sick. It has been a week now and I can not stop going to the toilet. My digestive system FEELS fucked and I just want this diarrhea to go away. If anyone knows, when will I stop feeling sick? I’ll call my doctor by Friday if no progress but I’ve been reading about cleansing which seems my best bet. I’m just not sure what to do and not do or eat while cleansing.

    Hey @uniken23!

    I hope that you are feeling better! I hate when things like that happen. Something similar happened to me with cheese at a restaurant, it made me feel so yucky. It was a totally mistake and the restaurant felt terrible about it and they were super apologetic.

    I think you will enjoy this blog, seeing as you had similar experiences:

    ūüôĀ Make sure you go see your doctor right away as it could be something much more serious.

    Feel better soon!

    I would definitely go to the doctor as accidentally eating meat shouldn’t have that effect on your body for more than just a couple of days so it could be due to a virus instead.

    Things like peppermint or ginger sweets and teas can help settle a stomach so give them a try, I hope you feel better soon.

    Oh, and don’t feel so guilty, everyone makes mistakes and if it helps to ease your conscience, why not do something nice for turkeys – like making a donation to a farm sanctuary, doing some activism promoting veg*nism etc.
