I have got a terrible stomach bug, but I'm stuck at work for another few hours.  I am sooooo anxious and shaking and scared I might vomit on a client (not a good sales tactic).  Does anyone else get super anxious when they are ill? Do you have any tips? I can't go home as no-one can cover and I desperatley need the money anyway.  I just don't know if I can do this for another two days(it's only thursday). Help!! eyes

Oh Nervymeg , poor you sad

Hang in there :-)

'Vomit' is one of my 'new' ones LOL. Used to be just diarrhoea I used to panic about , I always have a bad tummy (probably partly to do with A/P) worried about making it to the bathroom , always carrying spare clothes. Now I seem to suffer from acid idigestion and on occasions (luckily at home) have vomited.

I always have a stash of Loperamide so I'm not running to the bathroom , and indigestion tablets for sickness - failing that I usually find once you've got the deed over and done with I feel alot better ( besides if anyone notices - your ill and you can't help it)

Take care , and get well soon XxooxX

Ditto re: Mooney123's post.  Getting sick is like a phobia for me (namely vomiting).  If my stomach is upset I'm almost guaranteed to have anxiety.  I even get anxiety if I'm around someone else who's got an upset stomach!  Blech!

I've brought some anti-nauseants into work today.  Fortunately I held off the vomiting until I got home.  But I've had no sleep, am out of valium and look and feel like death warmed up.  I'm sorry to be such a big whinger but I feel like I'm about to burst into tears if anyone looks at me sideways today.  I just wish I didn't feel so darn scared of everything.  Thanks for the support guys.  I just needed some virtual empathy.

Yesterday's dead
Tomorrow's unknown
Today is here
And soon will be gone.
Use it wisely
Before it's too late
Remember to love
And forget to hate.

Hi Nervymeg

Sorry you are feeling so lousy. I must be the odd one out, when I get sick {which is often}, I don't notice my anxiety as much. Maybe the pain out weighs the anxiety. Feel better

Hugs Judy
