So tired of sickness

I got the stomach flu early December. DH got it this past week, then me, now our child.

How long is it lasting where you are?

Just a hint...no community towels-cups in bathroom. Toss the toothbrushes or sanitize in the dishwasher. If you have electric ones sanitize the base very carefully and often. Wash your hands t when you come in from elsewhere. Wipe the door knobs inside and out, TV control, fridge handle etc. Turn off the heat, open the windows and bring in fresh air. Hope your family gets to feeling better.

We’ve had it too. It never seems to last more than about 24 hours though. Really only about 12 hours of active intermittent vomiting and then another 12 hours or so of still feeling miserable.


Hope you feel better soon!

I had it at the beginning of December... it was horrible, but I never threw up. It took me about 5 days before I felt back to normal. However, my stomach really hasn't been normal ever since. It could be because I haven't been eating well, though.. Good luck and sanitize, sanitize, sanitize. Luckily, my husband didn't get it!

I got t last Saturday. Only threw up for one day but couldn’t really eat for 5 days. Horrible stomach pains for 3 days. I’m eating better but cannot eat as much as I usually do. Sanitize!!

Stomach viruses usually only last about 24-48 hours but they can return again and again every time you are exposed to one. I hope all of you feel better SOON!
