I had a meeting after work and was not able to check on my CVSer until around 7:30 last night.
Not that There was a reason to be checking on him. He’s an adult. But he had been in treatment protocol for managing nausea and lethargy. He took his full nausea regiment. He can usually manage with one. But had to take them all. Then went to bed for two and a half hours.
So now the anxiety kicks in.. if we were able to abort it or if this is the beginning of the next one.

Does the anxiety ever go away. For my adult daughter if I don’t hear from her for more than a day I start panicking. When she calls on the phone I panic until I hear her voice. If she is particularly upset about something I worry it will trigger. I feel your pain!

It never goes away.  My daughter has been cycle free for many many years and I am still nervous!

You reminded me of a funny story.  

Years ago when my daughter was just out of college my phone rang around 6AM.  

I heard whimpering, then silence, more whimpering and what sounded like my daughter trying to speak.  (My daughter quickly goes into a conscious coma and cannot communicate.) 
 
More whimpers, more silence.  Eventually I heard one of my older kids say to her 1 year old child "Are you on the phone?!" then she hung up the line.  

Turns out that the baby found the handset, hit a button and auto dialed me!


I know what you mean about being in a panic!

Oh my gosh.. I would have flipped! 

But, your right, the anxious worried.. doesn't go away. We went through rougher times. Where the span of him recuperating was very small. So as our meds were changed and adjusted, the span grew more. We still have times that are probably his new episodes manifesting.. (three to four days of nausea).. but then you have this... 

He was instantly overwhelmed with nausea. Then he started sweating profusely in a room that did not have heat and the temps were in the high 30s that day. Then a headache stared. He took his meds with in minutes and sat in class with his eyes closed trying not to puke. He left school early and went home an napped for two and half hours. 8 hours to the minute (medication run out time) for his nausea med, he started in again. Exact some thing.. Overwhelming nausea, sweating and headache..

He has been able to control it with meds so far.. but says that this is the worst its been in two years. [frown] 

We do what we usually do and eval what has changed, his stress (which just went down significantly after he dropped a class) hes meds and changes that we usually monitor. SO we sit and wait.. and mom contemplates calling the DR 😉 but I won't. I let him decide how bad. But it will get written down for the severity and as being an occurrence that we need to discuss at our next appointment.
