I've heard this stomach bug thing has been pretty vicious this winter. I know this past weekend when I was at drill, the company XO fell victim to it in the middle of the night. He wasn't a happy camper. Another person that fell victim to it was my wife' friends husband, he was so bad off he ended up going to the hospital for dehydration because he couldn't keep anything down. The nurse at the hospital said that she had seen 30 cases already these last few months.
"And for crying out loud. Don't go into the pain cave. I can't stress this enough. Your Totem Animal won't be in there to help you. You'll be on your own. The Pain Cave is for cowards.
Pain is your companion, don't go hide from it."
