Do you get sick when your kids do??

Posted by   + Show Post

 I never used to get sick, but the last 2 times that my kids got a bug, I did too.  Well, little man came home from pre k today & fell asleep, mind you he never takes naps.... unless he's getting sick.  Spiked a fever while sleeping, woke up & I asked him if his head hurt, throat hurt, belly hurt, no to all.  All of a sudden he pukes, glad I put the bucket out just in case.  So I have 4 more kids that will probably get sick & I'm praying I don't catch it - I have this irrational fear of vomitting, hate it. Hope this is a quick thing.... freaking germs.

Yes every time my kids get sick I get it as well. They love sharing with their mom.

You know what? I just posted something about this. Check it out. I think I titled it "Are there any emetophobic moms like me?". I feel sick when they get sick because i am so nervous, anxious and panic ridden. I also cant sleep when this happens.

I usually do and I usually get it worse than they do, but here lately I haven't been(knock on wood). Both of my babies have been a little under the weather lately and I still feel fine. Very surprised!

I usually get sick the day after my daughter starts to feel better.

Not the stonach bug so much. Thank god. I hate puking and dread when my kids get it because I knknow the others will too. I think I've done enough puking for a while thanks to two surgeries this summer so hope my resistance to their yearly bout remains firm. But colds I get, have one right now. Hard to avoid those when your son repeatedly coughs in your face.

Me either. I am on hyper alert waiting for the pre puke cough.

Not usually, but sometimes I may get a little cold.
