Stomach Flu:

Well, it was my turn, I guess. Everyone else seems to have had it. This was the single worst viral illness I have ever had in my life -which is saying a lot. I thought I would die. This now makes FOUR major viruses since Thanksgiving. I am losing my good humor to say the least. I can't even remember what it is like to feel good and strong. How did I do so much stuff and so much work last summer? Now I can barely face my basic responsibilities. I feel so helpless, and weak. I want the winter to be over. I want to take long walks with the sun on my back in the late afternoon. No more of this. It's too much.

Now here's a picture of my daughter in her snowpants with junk and boogies on her face. Cute, no?

Ohhhhh, I'd like to say something encouraging about spring being on the way and whatnot... but,well, we know that's not the case, right? Ugh. I am on the tail end of a terrible awful virus and WOW, I hear you on this. I can't imagine doing this four times in the last little bit. UGH. I hope you're all done with that. I hope the sun starts coming out more soon and starts to get warmer and warmer...

Oh man! I can't believe you're sick again! I think this winter has been especially hard and depressing on everyone...throw some physical illness into the mix and it's downright unbearable. Hope you're feeling better soon!

I wonder if it's something in the water supply. We have a water filter and none of us has had any problems. I can't remember the last time any of us has had a gastrointestinal "flu."

I hear you. I had something yesterday, and I am still feeling like a Mack Truck ran over my stomach. After the Salmonella poisoning scare, I had to make sure I hadn't eaten any of the products that were recalled. This is also the worse stomach virus I have ever had. I hope yours is better now.

I was scared of the Salmonella thing too for about a minute. Fortunately it all passed after a few agonizing days, and has not returned.
