I just wanted to butt my nose in and give my two cents. I am also an elementary school teacher (special ed, grades 3 and 4) and in December a horrible stomach flu/virus was going around our school. Needless to say, I of course caught it and thought I was literally going to die for 3 days straight. Like you, though, I barely ate anything during that time and just drank water or sipped on chicken soup and the D went away. Once the D subsided, I had a horrible stomach ache, worse even than period pains, which lasted almost a whole day. But then they left as quickly as they began and I was back to normal in a few days (well, normal by IBS standards). So Ohio is not the only place the sickness is going around -- it's here in Maryland as well. And I know what you mean about being a teacher. I can't imagine doing anything else with my life because I love it and the kids so much. But IBS certainly does make it difficult sometimes, especially since I have been having such gas issues lately -- gotta love the usual immature kid reaction of "Ewwwww, someone farted!" Luckily, they never seem to think to blame me, hehe . Good luck with the rest of your school year!
