Shrimp Question: How do you know if it's bad?

I bought cooked, frozen shrimp on Saturday from the fish counter at a reputable grocery store in my neighborhood. It has been in the fridge since then. I just cooked it up tonight. I've already eaten some, so it may be too late, but how long does cooked shrimp stay OK to eat in the fridge? My web research found everything from 2 to 7 days, with the average being around 3-4 days. Will I be puking my guts out in a few hours?? The shrimp did not smell bad, nor was it overly slimey. Should I throw the rest away or do you think it's ok for lunch tomorrow? As a cubicle drone who brings her lunch everyday, this is a very important question!Thanks!!
