Is it normal to get sick back to back? ?

I remember in December 2019, I tested positive for influenza. I had it for 3 weeks over winter break. I started school and I wasn’t positive anymore but I still felt the symptoms. A week later in mid-January

, I contracted a stomach virus. I was throwing up for 3 days straight and I didn’t feel good at all. My fever came back and so did my dizziness and fatigue. This never happened to me before.

    Sometimes if somebody who has the flu goes back too soon, it will 'return'.  

    How did you 'test positive' - I didn't know you could be tested for influenza.

    Sure, it can happen

    of course it is, especially in a school setting where various infections get passed around easily. Different pathogens, viruses, can infect you at any time, back to back.

    i bet in real life you dont use big boy sentences like "tested positive for influenza" lol i'm 10 and i dont say "i contracted a fecal dilemma" I say "I had a stinky messy poop :3".
