I will probably never eat fries or chocolate again. Picked up some stuff from the store last night because my kids have been dealing with it. I stop and treat myself to some large fries at mcdonalds, followed by some nestle crunch bars.

About 4:30, I knew what time it was. Got the bubble guts, the dizzy feeling, slight headache, almost numbness in my hands and feet. I blew about 5 lbs of vomit out and now I'm writhing in pain on my couch. Feet keep crampin up. Feel weak and haven't slept but about 30 minutes the whole night. Can't stand listening to anyone talk, TV included...

Man, my younger kids made it look so easy.

I consider myself a tough guy physically, but this is my first stomach bug in about 7 years and they turn me into a f'ing baby everytime.

And to top it off, my oldest one that is in school, she's out for spring break this week. AWESOME. We didn't even do anything for Easter yesterday b/c they were still dealing with it.

You are welcome.

My nieces had it and they were real cool about it. Then my mom got it from them and she was acting like she was about to die. That thing is highly contagious. You aren't supposed to prepare food for anyone for like 4 days after you feel better and you gotta sterilize everything.

Yeah man, the whole family went for my youngest's well-baby checkup... It's horrible. I don't know if it was that, or my wife got sick a week or so ago, and she works in healthcare... She also usually prepares the meals. It's horrible.

A couple hours ago, I wasn't even able to hold my hands up to type on my phone or cpu.

It sucks. And kids definitely do take it better than adults. My son blew chunks and was like "what are we doing next? I want a milkshake!" LOL. I on the other hand, felt like it would've been easier to go lock myself in my garage with the car running than that feeling right before you upchuck.

I got that over the Giants-Pats round 1 Super Bowll. A friend of my brothers came over to hang out after getting over what he said was a stomach virus, and the SB was the next day, made it through the game and was sick as a dog after that. I still to this day cannot look at buffalo wings without feeling sick.

I'd rather have the flu then that again.

Dude.... I had it about 3-4 years ago, my first time experiencing it. I was shitting my guts out while leaning over puking in the tub. My kids were crying hysterically not knowing what the fug was going on with me. Was so dehydrated my vision began to blur. Buddy made a make shift IV to get fluids back into me. Hope you get over it soon. poo is brutal.

My friend had something like that a couple months ago. I got a free pack of oreos out of it cause he couldnt look at them without getting queasy.

So I have nothing but good experiences personally

This needs further explaination.

Sorry, not as crazy as it sounds. Already had lines, needle and saline. Our first aid kit consisted of mass IV supplies and tampons.

Years ago I got one after eating those honey mustard pretzel nuggets and 3 salami and mustard sandwiches

I've eaten salami and or mustard since, but never alone together and I'm probably never going to touch those fuging pretzel nuggets again

Yeah, I will have a hard time eating any chocolate or fries for awhile, but that's good for me... I needed to start eating better, now I have an immediate reason.

Last time I'll never forget, it was even worse... I had thought I went long enough without getting whatever my wife and daughter had, so I thought I was safe. I decided to have a nice appetizer of salsa and chips... A LOT OF THEM. It was too late... I ended up doing like CoW... My wife woke up to me in the fetal position, in just my boxers, rolling back and forth on the floor in front of the bathroom.

I finally made it to the bathroom after she fell back asleep, only to wake her up to me rolling off the toilet to throw up in my tub once I smelled myself splattering the bowl, lol. One of the most humbling experiences of my life. Now that was love.

Wow, I had the same stuff right before I went to the Dominican.

I was at BDubs and was trying to choke down a beer, normally not an issue with me at all....

Couldn't get it down, had to get up from the table twice to go blow up the toilet. Paid my tab quickly, and didn't get to my car before I threw up all over the parking lot.

Made it home and threw up and had the runs all night long. Seriously like every 3-4 minutes, all night.

Couldn't drink water or eat for three days. Didn't have enough energy to get off the couch or listen to the TV. Literally laid on the couch with my eyes shut praying to not have to throw up or poo everywhere.

It was by far the worst I have ever felt in my entire life.

I didn't go to a doctor but I swear I had it the Sunday we played the Seahawks. let's just put it this way, I was so sick a sip of water would induce vomiting AND more importantly I didn't care at all about the Panthers game. Terrifying stuff.
