  • There's some kind of stomach virus going around. When I was getting my hair done on Friday there were two ladies (not together) who came in. Both commented that they were sick and said it was a stomach bug. I thought at the time that they really shouldn't be there and spreading the bug around.

  • We had/have a stomach bug going around too. For me it started with a migraine, then feeling nausious (which I though was from the migraine) going to bed and then waking up out of nowhere at midnight to puke. I spent the whole next day laying on the couch with NO energy and an achy body.

    My SO got it the day after I did, but he puked like 10 times. It was over in the same amount of time though (between 24-48 hours).

    However, when my MIL got it, she got diarrhea with it and it lasted 3 days.

    Oh, and I live in Northern California.
