    OMFG I got the Rotavirus last night and its still kicking my ass.....I never had this before. My son got it last week, who in turn gave it to my wife, who was not that bad, just had a little nausea, then after I was done yesterday with work, I felt all weak and flu like...then bam....it was coming out both ends till about midnight last night, and today is my busiest day! So i called all my clients for today and told them I will get to them tomorrow and Friday. But geez....this thing kicked my ass big time!!

    LOL i hardly ever missed a day of work for being sick, but this just messed me up big time. I was going to work today but running to the bathroom every 10 min or so is killing me!! My doc just told me to drink alot of gatoraid today and warm coke (that helps the nausea). Other then that, he said that the worse is probably over after today!! Otherwise if not, I will have to get one of those bags you poop in :p

    I got that same thing last month the nausea should be gone by tomorrow. The good news is you will still feel pretty bad for another few days though!

    I just answred the "Time Off" thread--- seems it will fit here so I will just paste it---

    What is time off????

    And what is 4 weeks vacation?????
    Just the joys of being a solo self employed

    Or Winter

    Yep, working for "the man" really stinks- Sick time-- 4 weeks vacation-- steady pay check-- A PAYCHECK -- Health insurance-- Weekends off-- Nights off-- Can't see how anybody would put up with that

    Yeah I am feeling better as far as the nausea goes, but my arse is killin me!! Now I know why my 11 month old son would cry so much when he went potty, its not the action that hurts, its the clean up!!! I broke out in a sweat from the pain of just havin the toilet paper go near there!! worse pain I think I ever felt!! an I got tattoos under my arm in the armpit area, and I thought that hurt.....
