me and my partner have started with the sickness and runs bug, nearly everyone i know has had it or they know someone whos got it, there seems to be alot of bugs about this year, alot of peoples xmas have been ruined by it, have you been affected. i feel like rubbish and not long been up, keep going hot and cold and got no energy. my little boy is still in hospital so it means i cant go and stay with him till 48 hours have passed from when im last sick or have the runs, i feel so bad leaving him but its for the best and luckily his nanna is staying with him.

Aww what an awful time for you all. Hope things improve for you all soon. And yes there are so many bugs going around. Almost everyone I know has had something recently - you cant escape it.

Yeh my family has it. Makes them monan lots too X)

Seems there are a few ill at the moment thread here

Get well soon OP - I think as well all the stress and rushing around for Christmas hasnt helped either.

coughs and sneezes spread desees.

I hate people who go out even when sick and spread it around I make a game out of trying to get away from those who are sick. I know people have to earn a living but how can they do a good job coughing and making others unwell is beyond me.

I was ill Christmas some years ago when I worked at woolworths the manager was angry but when your eyes water even when in doors how can a good job be done you may even become a hazard bumping into things and people.

I always buy a weeks worth of food around this time of year : )

get well soon and eat well

The problem is that some managers make life hell for staff if off work.

I have been off over christmas and I work for NHS I know that certain people will be moaning about me being off and my 'timing' as if I planned to be ill for christmas. I am still coughing a lot and have a temp, I am due back on wed but if I go back I will be spreading my germs if I don't go back I will get hassle.

OP some freinds of ours have had this sickness bug over christmas, there is so much going around hope you get to be with your son soon xx

As shellywelly I also work in the nhs and loads of staff have been sick recently as loads of bugs going round. I am guilty of going into work with a bug as coughing and feeling rough but the hassle you get for being off is not worth it and could still do my job even though took a bit longer to do things but luckily don't really have any patient contact so only mixing with other staff but you are more expected to go into work being not well unless you physically cannot make it in

its cold people gather together at chrimbo germs spread

my partners had to take time off since our son has been in hospital as its 45mins drive away and without him off i wouldnt be able to get there and there would no one to look after our daughter. his bosses have been understanding so far but it wouldnt surprise me if he gets into trouble when he goes back as hes only spoke to them over the phone, my work place the staff use to be like that, if anyone was off sick then everyone would **** them off saying they were lying. i work in a care home and last year there was a bug going round and nearly all the staff had it and residents, it got that bad we wasnt allowed any visitors in, staff were sleeping over as alot of staff were off for 2/3 days they even had to get people in to come and disinfect the place to make sure them germs were gone,

My entire family had this just before christmas.
Can be anything from a few hours to a few days.
My daughter seemed to get it twice.

Our office bonus is dependant on not being off.
Everytime you ring in with a sickie you lose 5% or something.
I think its counter productive because it just spreads the illnesses around.

Anyways hope everything works out with your little boy.
