I think I'm on to something here. Nausea must be hereditary in my family because lots of us have it. My family is one for passing down all the genes you don't want ;) kind of kidding but kind of not. If only the good stuff had been passed down, I'd be really awesome. ANYWAYS. My friend Nicole was telling me about these little meltaway motion sickness tablets (I think these are the right ones?). I bought some at the co-op the other day and I used some last night and they worked!! I have issues with getting motion sick in the back of a car unless I'm looking straight out the window or am sleeping. I wish I had gotten the reading in the car gene that my grandma has. Alas, I didn't.
These don't really taste like anything, they just dissolve under your tongue and are all natural. They seemed to work well for me.
These little guys are called seabands. You put them around your wrist 2.5 fingers down from where you wrist bends. The little white thing has a protruding plastic thing that presses into a nerve or something that controls nausea (very scientific wording there). For some reason I feel a little claustrophobic when I wear them (thanks to my ancestors again) but after a few minutes that goes away and it seems to help. It's very highly possible these are both placebos and have no real effect but my mind lets me believe they do so they do!! Hooray!! I call that success.
(Why is it that I can ride every ride at Disneyland/world, go upside down on 6 roller coasters in a row, be jerked to and fro and not get motion sick?) (oh ya I remember.....the day after I get back from any of these exciting places I have the worst vertigo EVER recorded. I remember very vividly falling to the floor when I woke up after getting back from Disneyland a few years ago. I stayed there the rest of the day, I literally couldn't get up because the ceiling was the floor and I was laying on the walls.....awesome. however Disneyworld must put something in their water because I didn't feel this way at all after going there. Maybe they just sweat it out of you, or maybe I was preoccupied with a gigantic purple&blue fractured foot that I had continued to walk 436 miles a day on for 4 days, that's probably it)
Wow that's so random.
In other news. I miss Downton Abbey, A LOT. A lot a lot. Since the new season won't air until something like next February (ridiculous) I have to get my 'fix' elsewhere. Introducing Mansfield Park.
I haven't read a book for like a month or longer, so weird guess I'm just making up for lost time.
How do nausea and mansfield park go together? They don't.
