    Anyone else get this sorry fucker? My parents gave it to me just before they took off for Florida. They were both done puking in 12 hours and back to feeling normal after 24 hours. I haven't puked since around the 12 hour mark, but the way my guts feel I sure wish I had. During those first 12 hours, it was about every 20-40 minutes. Haven't slept in 48 hours now, because the bug kept me up all last night too. I'm going to take a Tylenol PM and hope the sleep cures what ails me.

    Sounds like the dreaded 24 hour stomach bug...

    Keep drinking fluids and stay hydrated...

    if you can keep anything down, it may be soup or soup like soft foods...

    Oh, good. Now we'll know who the blame the outbreak on. [​IMG] Our current disease du jour is a nasty upper-respiratory/sinus thing that never seems to entirely go away. I have had it, on and off, since mid-December and it is now back to its "active" phase. Half my office is (and has been) in the same boat. With all the coughing and hacking around here, it sounds like a TB ward. I'm waiting for my doctor's office to take the phones off the answering service at 9 AM so I can try to get an appointment. Maybe we can trade with your parents. [​IMG]

    Regards,

    Joe

    I had it too. Messed up my plans to eat chili and junk food during the superbowl. Plain rice instead.

    Well, the Tylenol PM allowed me to get 12 hours of badly needed sleep. Now it's moved its way down from the stomach to the intestinal tract, which I consider a sort of victory.If so, I'm really glad they're down there for a while!

    Sounds like the norovirus. Has been going around up here for the last 2 months. The wife and two daughters and my self got it Dec 24, 25, 26 and 27. Was great fun, but at least it was done for each of us in 48 hours.

    Somehow our son escaped the 2 days of death.

    Lucky son of a gun. I got hit late Monday night and I still don't feel 100 percent. Last night was the first time I got to sleep unmedicated, and I didn't fall asleep until 6:30 am. The only other time in my life I came close to feel that awful was when I had an allergic reaction to the painkillers they gave me after I got my wisdom teeth out. And at least then I was able to just lay off the pill and grin and bear my way through the pain.

    Man, Adam, you've got one Energizer bunny of a bug there. The last time I even remember throwing up was 5 years ago.
