Quoting Isadora

.... It takes just about an hour for the drug to take affect. If you take the medication immediately before boarding the boat, or while on it, it may not be very effective as the symptoms will have already begun. It needs that hour to be absorbed completely.

Very good advice. I wish I had known this before my first snorkelling trip to Shark Ray Alley. The pills had not disolved when I upchucked over the side of the anchored boat and a shark cruised by and swallowed them! True story!

Paul understands my fear but so often l have to miss out on so much - when in London l got as far as the whispering gallery and couldnt go any higher (l thought l was going to have to live in the whispering gallery as l couldnt get down!) or in Barcelona l tried to go up the stairs in the Sagrada Familia and got as far as the first break and then had to come back down - hyper ventilating and on my bum as l couldnt walk!! Paul will go off and do them on his own so he doesnt miss out - but l get annoyed cos we are missing sharing the experience and its through a phobia of my own!!

The motion sickness/sea sickness thing is at least something l can do something about in that there are tablets and lm not scared of being on a boat on open water its just the sickness which gets me!!

My next thing is spiders l cannot abide them and go into a screaming fit if any come near me!!!! I dont care about that l never want to get up close and personal with an eight legged freak!!

I definitely understand the "not getting where you really would like to go" thing! It's happened to me quite often. It's not only disappointing but irritaing as well.

Spiders - you and CupCake have the same problem. Thought I was going to have to collect her in the next county one day. She was ready to sprint at the sight of one, but he met his demise before she got off the ground (that we were sitting on).

I wonder if the Dramamine worked on the shark????
