All my life I have been afraid to read in the car because I'd get carsick. I tried it a few times and became quite nauseous and got a splitting headache.
I made a trip to VA last month and decided to try Bonine. I'd been told it was terrific to keeping one from getting carsick. Since I REALLY needed to be working on the WIP (work in progress), and it's a l-o-n-g drive, I gave it a try. It worked, hey, Mikey! But it did make me terribly sleepy. My friend, author (and retired nurse) Leann Sweeney said, "Try taking half a pill." It still worked! But I was still sleepy and didn't get as much work done as I'd hoped. Back to the drawing board.
So, I have just returned from Bethesda, MD (Malice Domestic) and The Festival of Mystery (Oakmont, PA). This time I decided to try Sea-Bands. I was on a cruise in January and saw a LOT of people wearing these little cloth bracelets with a plastic bead embedded, pressing on a pressure point. Guess what? It worked fine! I managed to edit my entire manuscript during the drive, and edit the first half of another project.
Weeee! No longer will I have to be bored during long drives. I can work, or read, and not have to worry about projectile vomiting. I'd say that's a huge improvement.
Have you ever tried Sea-Bands?"
