I am sick as hell. Bad timing... but is there really a good time to be sick? I got sick Monday at 4 am... body aches, nausea, headache. I called in sick. 18 hours later I thought my insides were coming apart. Vomiting, diarrea every 2 hours for the next 10 hours. I haven't been this sick in I don't know how long. I called my son, James and he took me too a Minute Clinic at CVS. The nurse could not help me... she suspected stomach flu and dehydration. We called around some clinics but no one was taking new patients. I looked up stomach flu and the symptoms are the same but the prognosis is not hopeful. Some people who wrote about their illness said it lasted up to 2 weeks and even came back. This is day 3 and I did not go to work... my official last day... but there is nothing I can do I am too weak and I look like hell. I am supposed to start my new job Friday and I hope I can make it.
Hope you are well and don't forget to laugh out loud (although right now I don't feel like laughing too much)
xoxo Inge

Try homeopathic Arsenicum, it is the empirical remedy for stomach flu. Stay hydrated with electrolytes from Pediolyte or the like (a baby formula for dehydration).
