- Entertain me. I’ve got gastro :o(
Since last Friday. Signed off from work. Dropped kids to school this morning and was phoned by them advising my 5 year old had chucked up in class. Feeling metaphorically and literally sick and tired.
She’s asleep now so I need something to stare at while I lie on the sofa and burp/fart and ache.
Netflix and ill.Posted 6 days ago
Me too fella. Started Saturday evening, managed half day at work on Sunday, been off since and it’s not showing any signs of easing up. Gonna try to drop a sample at the lab today, not a euphemism!
Been watching fear the walking dead on amazon and a bits of the tour.Posted 6 days ago
Daughter’s been watching kids TV on the sofa, broken up by walks around the garden and picking flowers for when Mom comes home from work. Hate being ill, but REALLY hate when my kids are ill. Sunday night (early Monday morning) she was sick 5 times in 45 mins. Twice while she was sat on the loo which was a fun scenario. Belly gurgles, cramps and “dare I fart” moments. Eww….
Annoyingly the sun is shining her and we had the hottest September day since 94. We got to 32c and it’s perfect riding weather if you can avoid the spring magpies swooping. Oh well. One plus is that my blood sugars have been spot on and I’m ticking over on very little food. I think I’ve lost a kilo or two since Friday as I needed to go in a hole on my belt haha!Posted 6 days agonbtMember
Having had campylobacter a couple of years ago, it’s not fun, the stench i created was phenomenal, no vomiting for me though, just a water cannon of gush.
I recall being poorly on a ski trip to Val d’Isere a few years ago. As though it wasn’t bad enough to be sitting there with my head between my knees while half the weight of my body was pouring out of my backside and down the toilet, when I sat up and smelt the stench it was a desperate grab for the bin as I did a fairly good impression of Linda Blair in The Exorcist. Not a fun 24 hours, but it ripped through sto quickly I was skiing again after just one day in bed (plenth of fresh poweder snow was somewhat too tempting to waste)Posted 6 days ago

That’s interesting, I’ve had no vomiting. I reckon I’ve most likely got camp. I’m actually still hungry and eating a bit, not really lost my appetite.
Just had a pretty dicey trip to Tesco for some supplies. 😳Posted 6 days ago
Yeah the smells aren’t good at all. I left the bedroom after a number of hours trying to sleep. Went back in and was horrified by the stink I seemingly hadn’t noticed while I was in there.
Oh, and yesterday I had deep eggy gassy burps. Not eaten eggs. Just the putrefying smell if my innards.
Fun. For all the family……. (just waiting for the boy and the missus to catch up.Posted 6 days ago
Make sure you increase your hand hygiene by using soap & water often & before eating, i was quarantined to our downstairs loo only, don’t share plates / utensils / food etc.
If four of you get it…. how many toilets do you have?
I’m rather OCD with raw chicken prep when cooking now!Posted 6 days ago
Just the one loo :/
Hand hygiene is as good as it can be with a 5 year old girl and 8 year old boy in the house. (I’m a nurse so I’m OK with it all, just the kids can be a bit “Did I wipe? Did I flush? Did I wash hands?
I’ve done heaps of laundry, I’ve got alcohol gel in my pocket. Steralising anti-bac wipes. Doing the best I can. It’s quite possible wifey poisoned me as she’s veggie and has no concept (other than me banging on about it for close to 20 years that no, you can cook sausages, out the spares in the fridge, and then “blast them in the microwave” or use different chopping boards for pork / chicken that was once raw, then cooked and cut up on the SAME BLOODY CHOPPING board….ffs… fml…..
Today I’ve managed a piece of sourdough toast with sardines on. My appetite is usually voracious. Seriously sick (sic) of it now.Posted 6 days ago
So you’re job’s “sh!t” then?
Feeling a bit perkier this morning. Daughter is off school. Sun is shining, and I’m picking up a new insulin pump and CGM at 5pm so I’m looking forward to that (perhaps a little sad but it’s a new system which is almost a digital pancreas as it reacts to rising BSL and gives me bolus insulin accordingly to get me back into range).
Banana and black coffee for breakie. Yum. (not in the same cup though) 😀
Will see if I can prize my daughter away from My Little Pony on netflix and go for a walk on the beach with her. Fresh air and exercise.Posted 5 days agonedrapierSubscriber
you all better yet?
If not, I had a chuckle through this article and the film:Posted 2 days ago
