Thought i would share this with you guys becasue im feeling sorry for myself lol

I have had a tummy bug since early hours of tues morning - caught from my neice who was in hospital with viral gastroenteritis, they discharged her 11 at night without giving her any meds because she was under 1, then rang my sis in law up 2 days later saying what she has is incredibly infectious and contagious - by then the whole famiyl had seen her, and now pretty much the whiole family has in turn come down with it. Hopefully i will be the last though! Hoping my partner doesnt get it :cry: bless im!! Bloody nhs eh - what is wrong with them :!:

So i havent eaten barely anything for nearly 2 1/2 days accept 3 dry potato waffles yesterday eve and a couple pots of muller stars jelly - on the upside do you think it would of help me loose a few pound :wink: i have my next weigh in a week monday lol

Im on the mend now, still feel like my tummy is swollen, may try more food later also, missed out on a week of work tho, and the weather im told has been amazing sad i also stopped the tabs because i wasnt eating anything, still havent really eaten anything, think i may leave them until i start eating properly, my tummy cant take anymore of a battering than it already has!

Thanks for listening

    Sian, I'm so sorry you have been ill. Hope you are feeling much better now. Make sure you keep the fluid intake up. If you get dehydrated you'll feel so much worse. Sending you lots of hugs. :hug: :hug: :hug:

    my husband had a really bad stomach a month or so back and he lost 9lbs over 3 days. You do really need to stick to plain food and small portions when you're feeling up to trying to eat again as your stomach will need to get used to digesting again.

    poor you and hope everyone else affected is feeling much better now and no one else gets it.

    glad you're on the mend, its horrible isnt it. i had a stomach bug a few years ago, lost 11lbs in 3 days and all i could manage was little bits of dry toast, water and i had to force down some dioralyte to keep the electrolights up as i was being sick so much
