    Oh sweet Jesus.

    It is 2 am and I am up with the stomach flu.

    I popped some gravol-here to hoping it stays down.


    Here is a little e-mail i was sent a few months back. Seems to fit the situation well.

    I SHALL SEEK AND FIND YOU
    I SHALL TAKE YOU TO BED, AND CONTROL YOU
    I WILL MAKE YOU ACHE, SHAKE, AND SWEAT
    UNTIL YOU GRUNT AND GROAN...


    ALL MY LOVE

    THE FLU

    Hah, hang in there.

    I had a bout with something-unidentified-which-caused-me-gastric-distress, and I just had to ride it out on the toilet. Took an entire day and a night, and I went through several rolls of TP, but it all came out in the end.

    I suggest sipping something with electrolytes - Energade, maybe.

    Aw, poor kid.

    There's almost nothing I hate worse than throwing up.

    Except a sinus infection. F***. Feels like your face is falling off. And when I can't breathe through my nose, I feel like I'm drowning.

    I hope you feel better.

    Man that sucks.

    I give you my sympathy, I do.

    I'm booking an appointment with my Doctor to get my flu shot before winter arrives... I absolutely, cannot stand the flu, namely because when I get it, I always get an extremely blocked nose and well, that itself makes me want to reconsider living.

    Haha.

    I think I'm getting sick myself. Never fails. Every March/April.

    Ginger or mint tea with honey.
    chicken soup home made preferably
    lots of liquids.

    flu and colds are horrible.
    I have only had the flu once badly
    twice the normal type.

    Just to clarify, stomach flu is gastroenteritis, which is totally different from influenza. Vaccines against flu are good, but they won't stop you from getting gastro.
