Almost everyone in the office has a stomach flu these last few days, including diarrea, low grade fever. Each day someone will cath it, and they all look like hell!  Of course I couldn't be the exception, I also have diarrea since yesterday, but I'm coping so much better than the others!  The discussion everyday is how awful they all feel, how many times they have been to the bathroom, and they exchange tips to stop the diarrea.  So today, they asked me, how can you also have the stomach flu and still look so good?  They don't remember that for me is part of my daily life, not once in a year! 
Anyway, just wanted to make you guys laugh, they get sick for two days, and they think they are going to die!!!  If only they knew what we are going through everyday....

I've sworn on other threads, OUR MEDS MUST KEEP US FROM SHOWING THE STOMACH BUG SYMPTOMS. I've seen far too many bugs come and go at work and at home that barely touch me. It has to be the meds.
32 years old. Diagnosed in 2002ish. 
Taking Asacol, Lomotil TID, and on Remicade since 2004. 
Lower Bowel area only, except for the short stint (about 2 weeks) that I had mouth sores.  Also have external/anal fistula and anal/vaginal fistula.

Just be happy that it didn't include throwing up. I usually catch the diarrhea/vomitting stomach bug 2-3 times a year. So the medications preventing me from noticing hasn't been the case for me. I will usually get it really bad and end up in the ER to get fluids and to stop the dry heaving and pain! I've been really hoping that I skip a year and not catch it! I could use a break!

Hope you feel better soon.
Diagnosed with mild Crohn's Disease 2/06 after sever GI bleed. Has been suffering since 1998. History of rectal fistula and gallbladder removal. Currently taking Asacol and Questran.
