Has anyone else been inflicted with the winter vomiting bug, did anything help, and how long did it take to pass?
I have a huge problem, I have had it for 72 hours now after the husband kindly infected me (he had it for 48 hours and is absolutely fine now). I am still having a lot of "symptoms" (politest way I could put it), my body feels like its been smushed (lots of aches and pains and my bones are killing me) stomach cramps, pain etc.
Tomorrow morning I have to go to London. We are self employed and like many small retail businesses (or even big ones) times are really hard. We can rely on a few big sales to get us through the next few months. I have arranged a sale in London tomorrow - it has been arranged for months. When I suggested I might be too ill to travel and my husband would come alone I was told that I was clearly not committed to the consumer and they would be pulling out if I couldn't show a bit of dedication.
I am still feeling like absolute crap but they are insisting that tomorrow (4 days after start of symptoms) I should have had the 48 hours of sickness + 2 days of contagiousness over with and be fine and are talking of backing out because of my lack of committment as there are no other dates they are in London to reschedule.
So I need to travel 3 hours on the train to London tomorrow, as well as an hour on the underground where there are no bathrooms, and I am absolutely dreading it. Can anyone give me any hints/tips as to how to quell the symptoms just for a few hours? I am pretty weak, can't keep fluids down let alone solids and just getting out of bed makes every muscle I have scream at me.
I know people might have a go at me because I'm travelling whilst I'm contagious but I'm taking a spray bottle of bleach solution with me and I will be as sanitary as absolutely possible but I really can't lose my business over the norovirus which it may come to if I lose a big sale. Perhaps if I throw up on them they'll give me extra points for "dedication". It seems ridiculous that having the norovirus could force us into bankruptcy.
