And its no fun at all. Last time I had gastro Ian was alive so it was at least 10 years ago. I had forgotten just miserable the whole experience is. Got myself dehydrated over the last weekend and in a confused state, drove myself up to the emergency section at the hospital. They put a litre of saline into me, gave me some rehydration salts and told me to stay away from other people as I was infectious. Since then a cheerful round of loo and bed has been my life. Bloody awful way to lose weight. I will get better but its so damn slow.
