My ex husband was violent and psychologically abusive .Despite seeing my Drs regularly, there are so many days I can’t even leave the house. I can be sick nearly 20 times a day which is debilitating. I’m feeling very lost right now. I’ve lost my job and my 2 nd marriage has broken down . I’m seriously feeling on the edge right now

Hi Looby sorry things are not going well right now for you. Sometimes it takes a lot of perseverance to get through life. How is your relationship with your husband now? Is he abusive? What exactly are you feeling right now? It helps to talk about it and so many people on the forum are here for you. I struggle for years with my relationships with others-still do at times. Sure hope things get better soon Hugs and love Jules

Hi Looby, I'm Karen,

I can relate. <3

Are you being sick with anxiety?

Karen
Hi Karen

Yes I’m being sick with anxiety. Some days I can’t even leave the house and can be sick every few minutes all day. The Drs have put me on 200mg sertraline which isn’t helping but I keep telling them that and they won’t reduce it or give me anything different x

I am sorry you are struggling with anxiety and also sick. Have you tried gabapentin for nausea? What helps me with nausea is immodium. With all my anxiety, I have a steady diet of altoids, soda crackers and gingerale. The gabapentin helps some, but some is better than none. Unfortunately, vicodin always works to reduce the sickness in my gut, but we all know that's impossible to get a script for in this anti opiate environment. Deep breathing is helpful, powerade or the like also gets the electrolytes balanced some, just a few ideas that I offer up. Try to stay hydrated, even if you puke up the liquid, some will get thru to your cells. It may be dehydration that is the cause of your nausea so I hope this was helpful.

Today has been really bad. I went for a job interview . I was sick constantly until half an hour before my interview. God knows how I kept it together. I haven’t managed to get out of the house in days! Thank you for your support though. I’ve been trying to drink lots of water and rehydration powders
