I don't get affected by it, but a friend of mine takes a medicine that helps. I'll ask what the name is and elt you know!

Isn't it difficult for someone who suffers from seasickness to get into the navy? As in, how do you even work?

I usually stay away from the deck, I try relax and ground myself when I get sick. It tends to work.

This is so interersting to me. Is it something you can learn to avoid? Or is it something that's always there regardless of training and experience?

These are things that you get used to over time, so if that happens to you, surely after a while you get used to it. It has happened to many of us, we think that being on a freighter is the same as any ship and it is not like that.

Well if that happens to you I think that in part you just have to be patient, over time if you get used to it but the best advice is to take dizzy pills they help a lot.

Well, I take medication to avoid tides and nausea, I didn't go to the air force because I'm afraid of heights and well, my surprise is that the movement of the sea made me dizzy, all crazy but here I am and I don't go out without my pills, even though it says that my doctor that the best way to get used to it is without pills.

I think that if you get dizzy you are not in the right place, right?

People adapt, some more than others. There's always non-drowsy meds around if you need them, especially in bad weather.

My partner struggles with trauma-related depression. He’s asked that I reach out every day to find a time where we can check in during the work day, even if we’ve had quality time in the morning or have evening plans.

This feels like a big ask to me. I requested we not check in *every* work day, and he agreed, but still sends me guilting texts if I don’t reach out about it. I want to support his emotional needs, but this feels codependent and I feel myself growing resentful. Is this reasonable?
