    Indigo, I was the only one without a small child at home. I wanted to "borrow" one of my cousins...*grin*

    Yeah I've had this twice. Once in 2007 and again in 2009. Horrid, horrid disease. Spent about 16 hours sleeping next to the toilet both times.

    The 2nd time it came on at work. I felt a little odd when I went in at 7pm and by 1 was running to the bathroom every few minutes. Had a friend come pick me up at 2am.

    It's amazing how quickly it sets in and, once I was finally done vomiting and having diarrhea, how famished I felt.

    I got this a year ago at work. I thought at first I had ate something funny cause after emptying my stomach, I felt fine and I had overate. Until I got to work and started to walk. Vomit-city. It was only a mandatoried cna and myself plus the nurses. Every few rooms, I'd vomit. By morning, a house charge heard me hurling again and sent me home. It was snowing and I almost wrecked on the way home. I had the runs but it was what I called "controlled" ie it'd be liquid when I would go but I wasn't needing to go all the time like everyone else who got it.
