To those who have dealt with NoroVirus this year...

Posted by   + Show Post

How does it work?  Last year it seemed like very frequent vomiting for 6 hours and then stomach pains.

What about this year?

I'm asking because my son got sick at school about an hour ago.  He's home now and hasn't gotten sick again, yet.  

I have really bad emetophobia, fear of vomiting, so I'm in a state of panic right now.  I just want to know kinda what I'm in store for.  Is this going to be random, I have no idea when he's going to get sick type thing.  Or is the vomiting just a part of it and then changes over to something else?

Oh I don't know how well I'm handling it.  I try to stay calm around my kids though and when I freak out online people make me feel worse for it.  He threw up twice this morning within two hours.  I feel really sick, I'm extremely moody, and can't eat anything.  I'm avoiding him as if being in his presence will make me sick.  I'm so lucky that my husband doesn't suffer from this.  He's helping out so much.

I feel for you. Im emetophobic too. Unfortunately I can't handle it as well as it sounds like you can. Norovirus is one of my worst fears. Hope he's feeling better today!

HOLY CRAP!!!! Ppl are so thoughtless!!! Noro can kill ppl who r in the hospital already! What a selfish b*tch! My husband missed one of my ultrasound appointments because he had a mild cold - we didnt want to risk getting a preg lady sick even with the sniffles! smh

Oh and this reminded me. My sister works in a hospital. Yesterday they were told that a patient may have noro and to let their superiors know if they got sick. Well they found out it wasn't the patient at all. He had just had surgery and his wife had noro but decided to come to the hospital anyway. She exposed not only her fresh out of surgery husband, but all the other patients and staff. The hospital banned her.

It was like that all day then the Stomach cramps no lie at about 3 o'clock the same day I went to the bathroom same thing water and then all of a sudden he came and I started throwing up like every 5 minutes for a while and anytime I stood up I had to run to the bathroom the baby woke up from his nap and he had thrown up every where in his crib I was scared my oldest was gonna get sick all over again he didn't it was like that for a whole day like that then it got better no more throwing up or water out of the butt but still nauseous and stomach cramping I couldn't eat for like 2 days Sorry so much info but it was crazy I've never experienced it before until this year I've never been that sick ever

I'm the same way. Last time one of my kids had it I almost passed out and couldn't eat for like.4.days because I.was so.scared I had it or was going to get it. As horrible.as it sounds my mom.has to take my kids any time.they vomit because I'm so afraid of.it. I hope.he's feeling better now.
