The benefit of being home sick is that I can stay home.
The trade-off is the fact that I might throw up.
I have not thrown up since age 14 – half a lifetime ago. I’m so nervous.

Ohh, I’m so sorry–I HATE throwing up! I think I remember when you threw up–because then you ate pizza for lunch at school and threw up again, right?
I hope you make it through the day with no puking…but if you do puke, it won’t be as bad as you fear!
You feel so much better afterwards, the trade off is good.
Ugh, wish I could say that.
It’s not too bad, AP. And you DO feel better afterwards. Sorry you’re sick, dear fruend. :(
That is not a good feeling. I dislike nausea so much that I’ve refused the epidural every time I’ve given birth. Pain, to me, is more tolerable than nausea!
I hope you feel better very soon!
Wow! That’s an incredible streak!
That’s even longer than Lou Gherig’s record for consecutive baseball games played.
You’re like the “Iron Horse” of not puking.
I whole heartedly agree that pain is better than nausea… UNLESS the pain CAUSES the nausea.
Try ginger! I don’t know if it works when you have the flu, but I drink it several days a week because being on several medications makes me puke. A lot.
Ginger works for me nearly as well as the actual anti-nausea meds my doctor gave me. I’m not supposed to take the meds, though, unless I’m actively vomiting since it raises my blood pressure. SO… ginger and I are best friends.
It doesn’t work for everybody, but it works for me. It is also used to ease nausea for chemotherapy patients.
The brand I use is crystals made of honey and ginger and you just mix it in hot water.
Hope you feel better quickly!
I hear you on the throwing up business. I got sick right after Christmas last year, but before that, it had been well over a decade.
I sure hope you DIDN’T end up throwing up. But, all good things must come to an end. Or at least, they say that.
