* _Flat_ lemonade or ginger ale can help.
* Mint or ginger tea
* very cold / frozen liquids are also helpful - e.g. frozen fruit juice, iced water, whatever
* try sipping through a straw instead of drinking normally
Nausea can be worse on an empty stomach, so do try to get (and keep!) something down. This is what I'm doing at the moment:
* I keep a tin of enteral feed by my bed (or Resource, or Ensure, or whatever is available and works for you). If I'm too queasy to think about
getting up, I try taking a few sips of that over the course of 30-60 minutes, until I feel stable enough to start moving.
* I then progress to flat lemonade and mint tea
* by about
11am I *might* be able to eat a few dry corn flakes - again, it's important to get anything down, as nausea will be worse without it
* more flat lemonade / frozen juice / mint tea
* maybe a very light, small main meal later in the day
* more flat lemonade
* snack instead of dinner; crash early.
Oh, and if you can avoid meal prep, please do. atm I'm subsisting on anything I can defrost from the freezer (thank heavens I did a big cook-up in July), microwaved porridge, and eggs on toast.
