One year ago today, I discovered that Werther's Originals helped the nausea. It was hard being at work everyday. I sat at my desk in a haze of nausea and each day dragged by. I had started to notice that if I had something in my mouth, the nausea wasn't as bad. So one day at lunch, I went to a Pharma Plus and spent about 20 minutes looking at the ingredients in all of the candy they had. I wanted to get something with as few preservatives as possible. I felt so sick standing there. I was too hot and the nausea always got worse when I was too hot. Then I looked at the Werther's bag and saw that it only had about 5 ingredients, all of which I knew what they were and compared well to the 10-15 unknown ingredients everything else had, so I bought a bag. Having the Werther's made such a huge difference.
I still find Werther's candies in coat pockets and in purses that I used back then. Even though they look a little worse for wear and I wouldn't eat them, I can't bring myself to throw them out. I still have the receipt and it now lives in the box of Jacob's things.
I was never without some Werther's with me after that. It made the subway trips to and from work better. Not great, but better.
Our routine when getting on the subway was to take my coat off as soon as we got on the train. Otherwise I felt like I was burning up and the nausea got alot worse. Then I would ride much of the way to work with my head on Ted's shoulder. I was always such a relief when we got to work. I miss those days though.
