Lets hope we can all get to tomorrow with no V (then i know we are safe as we havn't been anywhere sinse school broke up). I'm sat her watching dd2 sleeping, worried she will V when she wakes up, dh has vanished (upstairs watching the football) so if she is ill i will have to deal with it with dd1 (who is also petrified of V so will probably run upstairs).
Hello! I'm joining if that is ok? - I've had emetophobia since I was about 11 (am 28 now) and throughout this time I have had awful times and better times. Lots of my family have had norovirus in the last couple of weeks and it's all I can bloody think about. Have had one full on panic attack and have that horrible heavy feeling in my tummy today. Not good. Just want to enjoy Christmas without this phobia just for once.
I was in town today and this woman was having a conversation with someone just behind me and she passed by me, breathed on me, with the words 'and there is sickness too!' Thanks for that!
I don't know how but we all managed to escape the nasty sickness bug that swept through DSs's school in November / early December. I feel a bit better now they have broken up and Christmas is coming. Hopefully we'll have a couple of weeks of good times, same for you all here.
Even our milkman left a note saying 'I've had a nasty sickness bug so I couldn't collect my money last night' and stupid me had really bad indigestion two nights later and told DH 'I bet I've got the milkman's bug off the milk bottles!' He reassured me and said that was very, very, very unlikely.
Dd has been fine all day until I let her have a biscuit and now she tells me she has butterflies. Because she knows I'm scared of it I'm sure she down plays it and just says she's fine when shes not. Or maybe it was a one off and she's ok now. Argh I jut want to relax and by worry for days and days that were going to get ill.
marne - your poor dd, but glad it seems like a bad cold rather than a tummy thing. Try to relax a little bit now, hard though I know.
in need - glad your dd seems ok now, hope she isn't playing it down.
I had a mini panic as my neighbour knocked the door & gave us a card earlier, said oh no have you got a cold, I said yes. She said well a month ago I had flu & then I just got better & had the noro so was in bed 2 days. I panicked, stupidly as it was weeks ago anyway, and just because she had it doesn't mean I will & tbh it could have been the tail end of flu anyway & she is prone to stomach bugs anyway.
We have been up with dd2 most of the night, no V though, just refusing to sleep after she slept a lot yesterday, she's now snoring on the sofa and her temp has come down a little. I just hope no one else comes down with it over christmas. Hopfully dd2 will feel better now shes had a bigger sleep. Hope you have all made it through the night. Its now monday so we should be safe .
Someone posted graffic details of a child with V on fb last night which has put me on edge, they dont live far from me but i keep telling myself 'we will be fine' as we are not going anywhere' but we have the step children on boxing day and i'm worried they will bring a bug with them (as they are quite sociable over christmas and spending christmas day with neices and nephews).
