So I had a BLAST at Acen... of course, as always. But I'm a bit worried.. on Sunday night after I had gotten home, my throat started getting really scratchy and sore... and progressively got worse until today where I am debating whether to go to the hospital (it's that bad).

Anyone else get sick??

Oh and to those people that hugged me (Mio from Fatal Frame 2) I'm sorry if you get sick D:>

Looks like we have our first official con plague thread. I haven't gotten sick... yet. I'm hoping my active hand washing and vitamin taking paid off.

I had a sore/ticklish throat on and off the entire con. It seemed to go away early Monday though and I feel slightly better. I chalk it up to allergies, as they've really been acting up this season for me.

I think this is the first time in years I haven't gotten severely sick after a con. Drinking lots of water must have helped.

My stomach has been hurting a lot lately, but I chalk that up to sugar overloading, poor diet, and sadness. Other than that no fever or anything from anything.

I have heard of a few of my friends getting a nasty stomache bug. I am starting to get the sniffles pretty bad and a chest cough.

Just take some Zinc and Vitamin C. If you get sick, it will help your body recover quickly.

Otherwise, stay well and get healthy everyone!

My throat's pretty sore. At first I thought it was from the screaming and shouting, but then I started feeling really dizzy and randomly passed out yesterday. I also have a fever today.... It's not that high so I'm all "Screw it! I'm going on the computer!" but it's still pretty bad.

I have a bit of a cough/sore throat, but I think it's just allergies. What I'm worried about is that the day after the con when I went back to work again, my manager has the flu or something and was sick (and still at work ) all day. So now I have double the stress, hoping I won't catch something. Dx

I hope everyone with any form of con plague gets better soon. <3

I had a little sore throat throughout the con, but I drank a lot of peach juice.

I love my immune system. I never get sick. lol

The only time I got "sick" was when I lost my voice at the con last year.

I've always gotten stomach pains and I'd just leave. It's most likely the fact that I don't eat the entire day until the evening or when I get home. As far as getting sick, I have yet to during the convention.

I got a case of the sniffles.









On Thursday. And then I was better by Friday. wtf? Isn't it supposed to be the other way around?

In other news, in the now 5 years I've attended ACen, I've never gotten plague. ;D

I feel bad for everyone. I actually haven't had con-plague in years. I used to get it really frequently and always had to make sure I took Vitamin C the entire convention, which helps a lot. I think that's what comes with age; you learn to treat your body better (remember to eat and sleep, etc.) than you did in your youth and thus don't get as sick. The worst I get anymore, which is unavoidable because conventions are wicked fun times, is mild laryngitis, but I always joke that if I donít come home with a strained voice I didnít have fun. ^_^

*does the math* You've been going since you were 12? Lucky...

Technically, I've been into anime for about 10 years (I was sick, it was a Sunday morning, I was flipping channels and came across Tokyopops block on what was then Fox Family. Caught the last few minutes of an episode of Digimon and then watched Flint Time Detective. the rest is history), but I didn't actually know what it was until 8 years ago >.<

13 actually. My birthday always lies just before ACen. In 2006 ACen was 3 days after my birthday and last year it was 6 days.

I've been into anime since I was 12 and that was knowing it was anime. If you wanna get technical, it would be when Pokemon and Digimon came out.

I have a few sniffles, but that was going on all weekend and I blame it on allergies. Hopefully it doesn't go farther that that.

Only felt like crap on Saturday and Sunday due to lack of food and drinking on an empty stomach on Friday night.

I got sick from eating the eggs from the little cafeteria across from the hyatt. Was throwing up for a good half an hour. After that I felt right as rain again.
