    I can't remember the last time I was like, really sick.

    I'm sort of a baseline sick all the time, so I never really notice illnesses except like "well slightly warmer today than usual."

    sometimes though, I get a mean one that breaks through and just wrecks me.

    I kinda like when it does happen though, my body wants to sleep as much as my brain does, I get to act all pathetic "bloo bloo I'm sick abloo bloo"

    My daughter brought home a GI bug and I was off so I stayed up all night holding her while she puked every few hours.

    Sixteen hours later I got sicker than I have ever been as an adult. I would vomit, feel great for about 45 minutes and try to drink fluid and then vomit again. This continued for like 36 hours. It was almost supernatural in how many times I threw up. I couldn't walk I was so dizzy.

    Though I weighed myself when I was past it and lost 9lbs so that was wild.

    Couple years ago I had a GI bug that had me basically constantly vomiting all night. By about 5 AM I had resolved to call in sick to work, but it took me almost 5 hours to work up the willpower to go get my phone off the counter in the next room. I had so much vertigo it felt like I was sliding off my bed.
    By the time I did call I just asked my boss to send one of my coworkers to take me to immediate care clinic. Who once they saw me gave me a anti vertigo med said I should go to the ER. So we did. Ended up being admitted for observation for 24 hours and got like 3 or 4 units of fluids. All of the doctors who looked at me were amazed I managed to get that dehydrated in just one night of vomiting with no diarrhea.

    Last time I got that sick with a stomach bug they gave me a full 6 bags of saline because I couldn't keep water down for a full day before hand

    This was in like 2013 though

    Hopefully I never get that sick again

    The last gastrointestinal virus I got was in 2017 and I shit water every hour or so for a solid 10 days. Towards the end I even went to urgent care just to make sure it wasn't bacterial.

    My immune system is fairly beefy with the exception of head colds which I get 1 or 2 of every year at almost the exact same time.

    That said, if something does slip through my body thinks it's the Big One even if its a little bug and I proceed to immediately die dead.

    Might have gotten Covid from a maskless grocery store fucker around the holidays. Woke up yesterday to a bit of a sore throat, and that was enough for work to say Fuck Off Til A Negative Test; the supervisor shipped me a rapid test for overnight delivery that should arrive soon, and while I also have a bit of a stuffy nose and a minor headache I'm hoping it's just a winter bug going around.

    And all on my 34th birthday, too.

    Jesus christ, I recently had a two-day GI something or other that just ruined me.

    How the fuck did either of you do that for so long? I could basically feed myself, lie down, and doze for an hour until interrupted by The Horror. Did it at least stop overnight? I slept in like 1-2 hour increments.

    Imodium did kick it out pretty well though so that was lucky.

    when I was 6 I got bacterial meningitis and almost died a couple times

    my parents thought I was just regular sick for a few days and then I woke up in the middle of the night with a crazy fever and hallucinating and they were like "maybe ER"
    and the doctor was like "your kid almost died."

    I was in the hospital for a grip after that, but once they moved me to the children's hospital, that was cool because they had a Sega in my room and I got to play the Aladdin game.

    at the regular hospital they had to do a spinal tap to... prove I had meningitis, I think?
    they made the mistake of telling a delirious 6 year old what a spinal tap was, so I punched one of the doctors in the dick and ran for it, pulling my IV out, and then my dad had to chase me down the hallway

    I am pretty certain that my brain boiling when I was a wee one is the reason I have memory problems.

    holy shit maybe it's all my brain problems.

    Punching the doctor in the dick and running for it is a reasonable reaction from a 6 year old who has been informed that they are about to get a needle in the spine.

    I also had to keep an IV in after I left the hospital, and they'd have a guy come by to change it

    and it kinda hurt, not really bad, but bad enough that sick me would start crying, and the cat I had growing up was having none of it, she'd sit on my lap and growl at the poor junior doctor or nurse or whatever he was.

    I had one of those. I started the 3rd grade with an IV in my arm and a big bandage on my ear because I had gotten a total ear reconstruction.

    I had to do antibiotics at night from these little glass jars with a tube that went down into the IV and we put them on a shelf above me so gravity would carry the meds into the IV.

    There's a convincing case that Caligula didn't go full bat-shit till after a nasty illness (either meningitis or bacterial encephalitis) in 37 AD.

    If you start feeling any unwholesome attraction to familial relations, order a legion to harvest seashells in celebration of your victory over Neptune, and/or decide to build a pontoon bridge near Baiae and host a 2 week party on it seek help.

    Yeah, I too used two of my three sick days for 2022 on this, but in my case I'm leaving that job to move in 4 weeks' time anyway so fuck it.

    I could go 2-3 hours at night before needing to empty the tank generally. I just drank a lot of pedialyte and gatorade and ate whatever I could stomach. Only way out is through!

    Update: my doctor thinks I cracked a rib somehow because the pain is so localized to one spot and there’s no other symptoms.

    I dunno what I would’ve done to do that but I’m gettin old so whatever.

    Anyway they did x rays and I should hear something soon.

    I also spent a week in the hospital in 2005 shitting and puking constantly after my appendix ruptured (106 fever baybeeee) with a tube intermittently down my throat, and then it took me another 3 weeks to convince my body to eat solid food without vomiting, so that's my baseline for unpleasant body shit and so far it's still the lowpoint.

    I get four! But not all at once, I get 4 hours of sick time a month but my shifts are twelve hours, so it takes me three months to accrue enough sick time to take one day off. :rotate:

    edit: I only had 3 sick days because I had some left over from last year, luckily

    I'm worried I'm not cleaning my CPAP stuff often enough still. Like marine that's why my asthma has gotten so bad the past year.

    Stupid humidifier tank is hard to scrub out with all those nooks. When it runs out of water because of a bad mask seal the whole system smells like a foot.

    Plus I don't got a great place to air dry my hose without the cat deciding to chew on it.
