And you can get it again. Disinfect and quarantine from your family, if possible. Y'all can pass it back and forth. Even after you recover, you can get it again.

About 10 years ago we had an outbreak in the nursing home I worked at. Nurses had it. Patients had it. All staff had it. We had to close down admissions and all affected nurses had to manditorily stay off from work for 24 hours after symptoms abated. Then, we all had to pitch in, even the front office staff, including the facility administrator, to disinfect the whole building. It took about 2 weeks for a full recovery for all.

Ugh, bless your heart it's awful! Both ends all at once. I sat on the "throne" for an hour. Holding a bag over my mouth while, well, you know.

Take care. Drink pedialyte or watered down gatorade, even if it makes you get sick. Chicken broth and soda crackers when you can keep stuff down. If you have zofran or phenergan on hand, use them. And keep your hands washed.

I hope you're better soon. It usually takes 2 days to get better if your immune system is healthy.

Yikes! Hope everyone gets well and feels better soon Walleye Nov 2023 #1

My goal is to stay hydrated and ride it out. nolabear Nov 2023 #12
My memory is kind of vague at this point but I think Tomconroy Nov 2023 #13
Is this where you are spewing out of both ends at the same time? beaglelover Nov 2023 #15
That's the one. It's over now but I still feel like death. nolabear Nov 2023 #16
Yeah, I had that one time. It took a couple of days for it to stop and then a week until I felt normal again. beaglelover Nov 2023 #20
Yes. Sickest I've ever been. yardwork Nov 2023 #17

Thank you. I'm still on crackers and ginger ale. nolabear Nov 2023 #25
Was there a vaccine for it? I got 3 vaccines in September- Covid, Pneumonia, and I forget the other one. Thanks. debm55 Nov 2023 #24
No. This one has no vaccine. You probably got RSV. nolabear Nov 2023 #26
Darn, thank you. I hope you are feeling better soon. debm55 Nov 2023 #28
Thanks. It's finally almost gone. nolabear Nov 2023 #30
