Period-ing on a Liquid Diet

So, the MenstroMonster™ (term courtesy of paraxeni) has decided to grace me with copious and extended vomiting upon its arrival this cycle. Since this has happened before and since the vomiting happens when the pain gets past a certain threshold, I do think it's my period causing it and not any bacteria or viruses. I've not kept down solid food since Tuesday night, and I don't see this changing for at least another day when my flow will probably get heavier. (Yay?)

I've been subsisting on the meal replacement drinks (Boost/Ensure/generic equivalents) mostly because the vanilla flavor is pretty bland -- important because even the liquid food is not guaranteed to stay put. Also small amounts of water frequently throughout the day. Just wondering, though, if anyone has additional tips for maintaining proper hydration, which at this point is my biggest concern, as well as nutrition, which is getting to be a secondary issue.

In the meantime, I will be writing my uterus a strongly worded letter. It already owns my pelvic cavity, low back, hips, lower GI tract, and sometimes head (thank you, menstrual migraines). It needs to know that it is NOT allowed to take over other organs and systems as well. :/
