Learning a lesson the hard way

OMG, so I have always has this issue with boat sickness. And I've had it for years. sometimes it's pretty severe, other times, I function almost normal...almost. I haven't been without symptoms since I was a pre-teen.
So in a not so lucky small portion of people, we get boat sick from just about anything.
You can learn more about MdDS here.
 I don't take elevators, walk on unstable things like docks, trampolines, or even pillows on the floor because it will make me a little sick. Flying in an airplane, staying in a high rise hotel (like RT in Houston several years ago) I'm a mess for weeks to months. Now here is the brilliant part of my story. Okay my not so brilliant moment. In my stupid thinking, I wanted to take a cruise. so I booked a short little late winter trip for my family.

UGH, NEVER again. Why oh why did I think I could do this. So we sailed March 6 and returned March 10, but not me. I'm still on the f#%@ing boat! at least my brain thinks it is. It's like I can't get off the ride. So next time I decide to try something that I know, because I really did know this wasn't going to go well, I'm going to remember this miserable time in my life.

So yep, another lesson I had to learn the hard way.

Ugh, I'm so sorry the cruise turned out that way. I hope you are starting to feel better. I need you in top writing form by the 7th!

Good luck, I'm sending healing thoughts your way!

I'm sorry you're going through that. I was excited when I heard you'd gone on a cruise, thinking you'd found a way to deal the motion issue. I hope that you're recovered soon and that memories you made will make up a bit for the sickness.
Take care.
