How the hell do these things happen?
Or, in more realistic terms: "Why me?"
I am having an encounter with noroviruses.
Sounds deadly and obscure, but noroviruses are commonly known as stomach viruses.
At the New York City Department of health website, it states:
Noroviruses are a group of viruses that cause an illness some people call the "stomach flu." They are not related to the flu (influenza). Another name for noroviruses is gastroenteritis.Gastoenteritis!?!?! I thought that was severe or chronic heartburn? Yes, I do have heartburn with this, but it's all the other flu-like symptoms that make it unpleasant. Especially the nausea. So, I have all the symptoms of the flu, but I don't have the flu. I have a stomach virus.
It has been at least five days and I am done with it. I felt better yesterday and ate dinner last night. Sadly, last night's dinner was not a permanent resident of my digestive system. I felt better when I awoke, though, and got ready for work.
Not so fast! Showering seemed simple enough, but moving around after the shower resulted in more nausea.
Now I am back in my pajamas, whining about being sick.
I am so done with this, so very done with this.
