Me also

I've been experiencing motion sickness since a kid. I'm 55 now. My solution. I take the boat slow. I spend a week or so at dock then some bay sailing and then out to sea. I find that if I'm at the helm I do not get sick. The focus of what I'm doing really seems to help. I too however am looking for a magical cure of which there is none. Pills seem the only way to go but hate taking them. They tend to make me sicker than the sea. I wish they could just operate and fix that inner ear thing. Best of luck. Fortunately for me, my kids don't suffer as I do.
