I can't eat breakfast. I get sick when I eat breakfast. Why do I get sick?
Question Posted Friday February 26 2010, 11:07 am
My mom has told me for years now that I need to eat breakfast and that it's the right way to start my day. I understand that and I understand that it's suppose to help the brain function properly throughout the day. She also told me that it helps to keep my metabolism up and in a healthy range for my body.
Every time I try to eat breakfast in the morning I get sick though. I feel like I'm going to throw up and vomitting is NOT fun, especially right before school! I tried eating just toast or cereal and not heavy foods like greasy eggs and bacon but it doesn't seem to make a difference. My mom eats oatmeal in the morning but I haven't tried it but I doubt I would feel any better from eating it instead.
What is wrong with me and why can't I eat breakfast without getting sick? It's terrible so I just don't eat it at this point which means I go like 4 hours after I wake up before I eat anything. Is there anything I can take to make the nausea go away when I eat breakfast or anything I can do to keep myself from getting sick?

My favourite is oatmeal (the 5 minute kind, NEVER instant!) and fresh fruit. You only need a very little bit and it keeps you from getting hungry throughout the day. Other than that, I'll sometimes skip the oatmeal and just have an apple or some pineapple or melon. Just a little something to give the energy boost we all need in the morning without making you feel like you swallowed a rock.
