The flu bug thing did your family vary in symptoms?
Oh Tinsel really, the only thing keeping me going is that we should be finished by Christmas,if it's 2 I'm not so sure. If we handwash bigtime what are the chances of escaping the Noro one if it's already in the family?
Will dash out for a vat of antibac handwash if it helps
Being very sick is common with a high temperature - that was definitely why I was very sick with this flu, I don't think it was norovirus; as soon as I saw what my temperature was (102) I crawled out of bed to fetch a bowl! The GP had to come out to see me at home as I couldn't bring the temperature down because of the vomiting - every time I took anything to combat the fever I threw up. Very nasty. Was very ill for 3 or 4 days, very feeble for several more, a heavy cold for a good week after that, and still coughing over two weeks later. My boyfriend had the same thing (caught it from him!) but less badly - not such a fever and no sickness. He's been pretty wiped out by it too though, and is also still coughing. It's a really vicious bug this year.
