    Im sick. I don't know what I have. It's really draining me. I felt sick all day yesterday tehn last night I felt like fluids came out of me from all directions. I can't keep anything down. I have nothing left in me and yet I keep going to the bathroom every 10 minuites. I ate 4 cherrios today and I drank some water. I just threw up some of the water. It's very frustrating. I don't have medical coverage. Ugh I jsut want it to end. I lost almost 3 pounds in like a day so far. Help!

    Its possible you have contracted west nile fever. Although when honeyhannah and I got it we did not have the fluid problem. Get some of Amy's No Chicken Noodle Soup and some fresh wheatgrass maybe and time will heal!
    Could be an allergic reaction to something too.

    otherwise go to the er and get a care package no insureance and being young a mom and being in CA i'm sure you will get it taken of care of for free or at least low cost, go!!

    make sure you get salts back into your system. try simple miso broth or, if your into gatorade or other electrolyte drink. i recently went through something similar. seems to me that you might just have a bug. i literally lost 8 pounds in one week (i ddin't have much to spare) but now i'm better. also perhaps you can try eating really really simple foods with no fiber - helped me.
    feel better, mama.

    I think you should be on a saline drip in hospital. You know the upside down bottle that you see hanging up beside patients' beds in hospital?

    Well your not alone babe. I have the flu right now and Im so fricking drained its just yucky :(


    Im not barfing or pooping but every sigle thing on my body is aching and my throat is very very sore. My nose is totally clogged and I have a fever.

    I feel like I haven't slept in days. I did get about 6 or 7 hours of sleep last night though.

    Yuck! I hate being sick.....and the worst part is that I haven't been sick in years so when I do get sick I get depressed too! :(

    I hope you feel better soon mama

    I am not sure what is funny about having to be on a saline drip. What they do is to shove a needle into the palm of your left hand and the saline solution is slowly pumped into your system. I had Ménières disease about six years ago and was in hospital for it with a saline drip. The symptoms for Ménières are that you are feeling exremely seasick and the only way to stop vomiting is to lie down. It is caused by an infection to the middle ear.
