Think I Ran Into the Dreaded 'Aussie' Norovirus

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.

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'd rather have the flu then that again.

Buddy made a make shift IV to get fluids back into me.
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.

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

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.

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.
