ADD post

I just commented on an emet blog where the captcha to make sure I was a real person read "sicknest".

The other day, my husband woke up in the middle of the night, and his tossing and turning woke me up. I haven't the faintest idea why, but I suddenly felt super queasy. I got up and got myself a cool compress and turned on an audio book and managed to fall back asleep. but I was so freaked out for a while. I haven't felt that bad in a long time.

I've also discovered recently that I get motion sick more easily if I'm hungry. But it's a vicious cycle because half the time I'm on my way to a restaurant. Usually some Coke makes me feel better. and bread if they have any.

Lately I've been getting really bad headaches along with a queasy feeling when I'm carsick. this is not helpful. I've had to get inside and just lie down for 30 minutes to feel better. I'm not a fan.

I was talking with my husband the other night about food. I'm surprisingly adventurous with food for an emet. I've eaten sushi. (never raw, but still.) I eat out a lot. I ate a ton of weird things in Hawaii. (Greek food made by an Asian couple. it was pretty good and I didn't die. or get sick.)

I've been getting better about watching people get sick on TV. yeah, it's gross, but my heart rate doesn't jump like it used to.

I signed up for an Emet study. link to check it out.

Just read your post about getting married! Congratulations! Did you feel any nerves on the big day? Maybe some travel sickness pills can help with your car sickness. The fear of car sickness is one of the reasons I never travel far.

No nerves about getting married! I was a little nervous about someone getting sick at the reception and at the bachelorette party, though.
The problem with the motion sickness medicine is it makes me so drowsy. And it lasts for 4 hours. So I just try to sit in the front seat and I have a ton of methods to help.
