So, I am a very infrequent puker. IIRC, I have not vomited at all in the last five years, even with stomach flus, pregnancy, and a few times, overconsumption of alcohol. I remember when I was pregnant with DD, wishing I could just puke, because I knew I would feel better, even tried sticking my finger down my throat... to no effect. Same thing with some stomach flus. Other people in my family will puke and recover more quickly. When I was younger I used to be really afraid of throwing up and would fight it hard.... and then at some point I guess I just stopped being able to.
I wonder if this is really healthy for me. I'm pregnant again and dairy seems to be a real problem for me right now - but instead of puking it up when I eat it, I just have horrible stomach cramps while it works its way out of my system. Anyhow, I stopped eating dairy two days ago and finally feel almost normal today. I can't help but think maybe I've short circuited some adaptive behavior.
