    I don't know WHAT kind of stomach/intestinal.....bug isn't a big enough word......creature that's going around but wow.

    I NEVER get that kind of bug for more than 24 hours.



    I've had it since Friday and today is what??? Wednesday? ugh. I went to work yesterday....physically anyway. Today....I tried, I really did. I got up, showered, got dressed, got gas, water and lunch, got back in my car and drove home. I was done.

    I got in at the doctor who told me that I seemed to have a particularly nasty strain. (You think?) He rx'd some sort of anti diarhea medicine AND requested samples to make sure it wasn't bacterial.

    If anyone sees that, that....thing headed their way? RUN.

    I hear ya. I had the bronchial version for almost three weeks, and am grateful that it didn't morph into intestinal. We only have one bathroom.

    Hope you feel better soon. Hugs.

    Take it easy until it is gone. If it is related to what I had, you have all my sympathy!

    Sounds like norovirus, a particularly nasty viral gastroenteritis that often runs through cruise ships and the like. It's been going around for a while this year. While it usually lasts no more than 48 hours, in some cases it can last 5-7 days.

    The most important things to do are to stay obsessive about handwashing so as not to spread it, and to stay hydrated. If you can't keep liquids down at all, you may need to go to ER/Urgent care for a bag of fluids IV.

    Stang soooo sorry. I had a bug like that when Nichole was 2 yrs old.............we both had it, not a fun time for either of us.

    I did a nasty resp bug a while back. Connor just gave me a new one.........well, I've had it for about a week. I may have to take up wearing masks around my grandkids. lol

    Sending very gentle hugs. I'm also saying a quick silent prayer that it doesn't head my way. It's been decades since I had something similar I don't want to go there again! DDD

    Ohhhhhhh, I'm so sorry!

    Sounds like the one I had 3 yrs ago. Laid me flat for 15 days. And I lost 15 lbs and put on a swimsuit I'd saved from b4 easy child was born! Of course, I could only wear it for a day, and then started to gain the wt back.
    And it looks awful when you're that sick and you lose wt that fast.
    Feel better NOW!!!! Quickly!

    I rang in the New Year with a nasty instestinal/stomach bug. It lasted for about 3 days and I was so miserable (and our house has only one bathroom). Luckily no one else in the household caught it.

    You have my sympathy, hugs, and good thoughts for fast healing.
