Welcome to the Tuesday Coffee Hour here on Street Prophets. This is an open thread where we can hang out and talk about what’s going on in our worlds. To get us started today, I thought I’d talk about seasickness.
Seasickness is a really great way to spoil a perfectly fun boating trip. Seasickness is a form of motion sickness which manifests itself in the form of a churning gut, dizziness, watery mouth, cold sweats, and an overall greenish pallor. On a boat, when the motion you feel is not what you see, you can get seasick. Until you get used to the unpredictable motion or get away from it, the symptoms won’t improve.
The only real way to prevent seasickness is to avoid getting on a boat. However, aboriginal seafarers for many generations have been ingesting ginger root as an effective preventative treatment.
Have you ever been seasick?
This is an open thread, so feel to share about what’s happening in your life even if it doesn’t involve a boat.
