You don't have to

Run to the er everytime your child throws up or has a fever. It's so annoying!! Flu viruses can not be cured with antibiotics. Your body has to fight it off.

You do realize they see the extremely ill/injured first?


Quoting Anonymous:

My concern is that it clogs the ER and takes attention and time away from actual emergencies. In some cases their bills do not get paid at all, so the hospital foots the bill for my time, the doctors time, and any medical equipment used during your "emergency"




Quoting Dzyre1115:

 Unless you are paying the ER bill, I don't see how it is any concern of yours.

LOL, I BET I KNOW WHERE THIS CAME FROM!! Your right parents of sick children should always stay home & google the internet or post on CM looking for medical advice that way when they really are fucking sick & then it becomes too late all hell can break loose & ppl will scream about why they should have taken them to the doctor. If my DD is sick, she's being seen. PERIOD. (:

Yes a flu virus can cause vomiting and diarrhea. Different people respond differently to the virus.

Flu viruses don't make you vomit in the first place.

I do;) and although everyone is probably really nice to you in the back of their mind they are probably thinking you are annoying as hell

You are talking about a stomach virus that people often call the "flu". That is not the flu. Flu is influenza which is a respiratory illness. Influenza can be fatal, especially in the young, old, or otherwise immune compromised.

When people get the flu vaccine, do you actually think they are trying to ward off stomach bugs? Lol

I'm always amazed at some of the asinine things people run to the ER for.
