Do you know for sure you gave him food poisoning? It sounds extremely unlikely given what you cooked and being hygienic and all, may I very gently say I think you are correct and that you're engaging in self sabotage and that you're misery will become a self fulfilling prophecy unless you can find a way out. I like you lots of other people here like you too, perhaps you should try liking yourself bud. Hug

I have a super sensitive stomach and for the longest time, I would get arbitrarily sick off some salmon, but not all. No one else ever got sick, it was only me. It took me a long while to figure it out that it was only farmed salmon from a certain country that was the culprit. All other salmon is fine.

Maybe your cooking and sanitation were perfectly fine and it was just some hidden ingredient that he doesn't even realize he's sensitive to that made him ill.

Tell him that you want to make it up to him by taking him to a restaurant of his choosing. If it was me, I'd want to play it all nonchalant. I'd probably buy a gift card to a restaurant that I know he likes and say that my relative sent me a gift and that I'd like to take him to a dinner that doesn't nearly kill him. Maybe if he sees it's all paid for he won't feel that he's putting you out.

Good luck, and don't throw in the towel on this just yet. It may well be worth the effort.

Norwegian farm salmon perhaps?
Proven to be the most toxic food you can eat. I refuse to eat it any longer and we get plenty of it at work.
As I understood it, anything labeled "Atlantic salmon" is farm salmon. Wild salmon would be very, very expensive.

The kind I've narrowed down is from Chile, but maybe Norway salmon is a problem too. I don't bother asking waiters where their salmon was farmed. I wouldn't trust them to know for sure anyway and I just sound pretentious when I ask, "uhm, excuse me, what country is your salmon from? Cause I don't eat anything from Chile". I started going straight for the wild caught. Raises my costs from $25 for dinner to $35, but I never get sick on wild caught. It's worth the money.

I'd be a pretty poor narcissist if I didn't like myself. The issue isn't self-esteem, my self-esteem is fine, the issue is motivation. And I mean I'd try and improve on that but I can't be bothered.

*^&%#$@@! (Breathe) $%#^&!

I just knocked my favorite glass off the kitchen counter, full of Pepsi, onto my toe, in my favorite pair of Keds, and it broke on one of the dog's favorite squeeky toys.

Where are we going and why am I in this hand basket?
