I'm glad I'm not an emetophobe (more info here)—someone who will go to great lengths to avoid vomiting, instead possibly living with nausea for hours on end.

I mean, it's not as if I frequently go, "Ah! A short trip to the vomitorium would really hit the spot!" or actually look forward to throwing up, but when the contents of my stomach fancy a bit of fresh air, I usually head to the toilet to get it over with. So it feels to me like a slightly unpleasant task that has to get done, so you might as well go and do it. I'm also glad that I usually get a bit of advance warning when my mouth starts salivating.

Yesterday, I ate some rice and meat sauce that was a bit off and had to throw up on three separate occasions over the course of the afternoon and evening. Perhaps a bit like using the toilet for other uses: takes time out of the day but you feel a bit better afterwards.

This morning, I felt decent and merely not-hungry. I had two rusks around noon and towards the afternoon I started feeling actually hungry again. So yay.
