So does anyone know anything to allow me to keep something down? I've been getting sick pretty much every 30 mins-1 hour since 7:30 this morning. I went to the store during one of my nonsick moments and picked up Ginger Ale, crackers and Tylenol Flu (they didn't have any gravol, not that it worked for me anyhow) but that didn't even stay down.

It hurts so fucking much and it would be nice to keep something down

scotch mints might be worth a try - might be purely psychological but they seem to help me settle my stomach - plus it helps with your breath

and don't forget to drink lots of water

Oh ricki poo I'm sorry, cause I think I had a hand in this. . .or you in my sickness, lol. I've had the stomach flu for several days now and I've been taking that ginger gravol non drowsy (I can't afford to miss work or school right now so I've been getting sick while out and about, lol). Although, I don't think I've been as bad as you

All I can really suggest is gravol and lots of sleep It's the ginger in ginger ale that settles your stomach. So you could try chopping up a ginger root, boiling it with 4 to 6 cups of water, straining it, adding some honey and then drinking it like tea. It's really spicy, but it works.

I haven't been sick for 5 hours now and the couple of crackers stayed down so maybe, just maybe I'll be able to hold some soup down

omg the roads out there are horrible. I heard it was suppose to get to -25 so I decided to head out and get an extension cord and find my car under a foot of snow Then I start driving and notice the roads are shitty so I call up my parents and ask if they have an extension cord I can borrow cause I don't wanna drive all the way to Canadian tire, driving from Valleyview to downtown was bad enough

http://www.theweathernetwork.com/wea...ef=wxeyealerts <-- thats always comforting.... grrr

I used to love the winter, back before i had to worry about road conditions and loved ones traveling


The bf is working at a construction site in merritt and drives there every morning at like 6, the roads have been shitty the last few days... tho if it keeps up they might not be able to work at all.


How are you feeling saucy? any better?

yeah feeling better. I have been able to eat and keep it down. Still feeling a little bit nauseous, but great compared to how I felt yesterday.
When Tasha came by and brought me goodies I showed her my eye and the little bit of popped blood vessels from all the puking, lol. blech

^^ Your welcome Anything for my ricki poo I was so worried about you! When I saw your eye I was concerned I would have to take you to the hospital or something! Good to hear you're feeling better

And yeah. . .I guess those winter tires are going on sooner rather than later, lol, and now I will have to tow my car to the shop to get them put on. . .that's what I get for procrasination! Holy mother it's a freakin blizzard! I was so scared today when my dad drove me to work cause I saw a city plow skid out. . . never a reassuring site, lol.

On another note. . .I wanted to smack every customer at Aberdeen Mall today upside the head! I BARELY made it to work. . .who the frigg looks out their window, sees a blizzard that apparently snow plows can't even drive in, and says "I think I'll do some of that Christmas shopping today" !?!?!

I think when snowstorms come, I tend to spend more time out driving than normal. It's FUN! and the more time you drive on snow the more prepared you are for panic maneuvers.

Thats how I see it! lol... Ended up off a 20ft embankment tonite. Corner of uhh... Dilworth and summit. The hill was a solid sheet of ice, up over the curb and into the park. I thought the car was gonna be a writeoff... Ugh... Payday is gonna rule to get a set of winters put on that beast. Bald tires lick!

#1 that thing is probably well past warranty
#2 how did you blow it up?
#3 how could you "pay" for extra warranty on someone else's vehicle?
