I am so sick. TMI

I think I have the flu. I feel like im gonna throw up and i have had the runs all day. I can't keep anything down. When I even drink water i have to # 2 even more. I also my daughter and the little girl I watch to take care of when all I want to do is lay down and die.
How long till I have to worry about dehydration?

  • Try drinking something with electrolytes and water. Try drink some broth too. It takes about a day for the effects of dehydration but u can go a couple of days if u have to.

  • Coke helps on stomac problems (cola, that is...).

    I would also let the mom of the girl u watch know you are sick right away!

    Normally they say to seak dr. after a week, but since it is so severe I would not wait longer than till tomorrow if you don't get better.

    Feel Better, girl :-)

  • Take small sips, sips some liquids every 30mins. Just sips its easier to keep down then drinking alot. hope this helps

  • P.S. Maybe try some over the counter stuff like Kaopectate for the runs, and see how it goes tomorrow ...
