Crikey, norovirus is HORRIBLE, isn't it?

Saturday morning I was right as rain.
Saturday lunchtime I felt a bit queasy. Two minutes later I had to fight my way to the loo and (if you're not strong of stomach look away now)


… was projectile vomiting so hard it was coming out of not just my mouth, not just my nose, but my EYES.

The rest of Saturday and up to Sunday afternoon I couldn't even keep water down.
Sunday afternoon I managed a yogurt.
Sunday evening I managed a plain chicken breast, then got overconfident and tried to eat a funsize bag of skittles. Skittles caused puke-o-rama.
About 2am I managed a bagel. It stayed down but I felt awful.
About an hour ago a cheese spread sandwich. I still feel queasy.

On top of all that I am highly infectious so I can't have hugs, and won't be able to have hugs for two days after symptoms subside.

Guys, you all know how I love food and hugs.
This is the worst torture EVER.

Oh sweetheart.

I have done that TMI thing before. All the sympathy.

*virtual germ-free hugs*

All the sympathy. Maybe strategically hug Certain People before you stop being contagious? ;)

Oh that's horrible, hope you're better soon. I had it two weeks ago, fortunately not too bad but I then gave it to my father who had it much worse.

Aw, you silly girl, thinking you could go from bland chicken to a big ol' thing of sweets.

You're getting better, keep it up and it won't be long before you're back to nomming and hugging

"Skittles caused puke-o-rama."

Lends new meaning to the slogan "Taste the Rainbow"...

Less flippantly, {virtual hugs} and get well soon. x

That there oneexwidow again.

The captcha thing I had for the previous comment was "Edward's name is?"...

... I tried to say "Edward, unless it is actually Albert and he has just ascended the throne." but it didn't like that...

Oh god, your eyes, seriously? Yikes! I didn't even know that was possible. :-(

I had it myself about eight (I think?) years ago now, and it really was super-grim. I found it was a good week before I felt anything like normal again, because of how weak it leaves you. Nothing for it but to lie on the sofa watching Doctor Who in the meantime, I'm afraid! ;-)

All the sympathy. I had it New Year's Eve 2007/New Years 2008, and it was memorably horrible -- but the good thing is it passes very quickly. Get well soon.
(And if you do come to Holly and Eve's joint birthday party on Saturday, you'll get extra food and hugs to make up for the ones you didn't get).

Aarghk! I'm glad I've never had this. Yet. I hope it really is passing.

Yeek! I hope it fucks off smartly, and you can get back to eating and hugging.

Hugs. :-(
I had that pleasure a few years back. My body has never made sounds like that again. Fortunately.
