Motion sickness…

Things I learned in the past two days…

Migraine + 4-6 foot waves = seasick Carrie. I actually puked over the side of the boat.

Things that help:

Get up and move around. Sitting down doesn’t help, in fact, I found that it made things worse.

Eat, but nothing greasy or heavy.

Drinking a can of Coke before going out on the boat (to help with the migraine), bad idea!


Today, after much research, we brought ginger ale with to drink, ginger snaps to eat and I took two Bonine tablets and some Zofran before going on the boat. Success, except for the persistent migraine. Thanks to my DH for giving me my ketorolac shot. It helped a bunch. Now time to go relax in the hot tub. I love being on vacation!

About carrie

I am a mother of two, wife and professional. I work; I sew; I do crafts; I cook; I support my family; I race; I live. I have been diagnosed with Chronic Migraine Headaches and I refuse to let them control my life. I live my life to the fullest and try to find ways to enjoy it as much as possible. I am living with a plethora of food sensitivities. But I am living life. I am enjoying life.
