I feel very sick any time I fly. Even if there is no turbulence on the flight, I feel a constant urge to throw up from take off to touch down.
Do you feel better after you throw up? Usually this makes me feel better. While I don't mind rough turbulence and bumps/chop (in fact I like it), repeated yaw and roll motions, especially during landing approach makes me sick real quick!! This has always bothered me since I was a kid, but never resulted in anxiety worrying about it happening before I even board a flight.... but read below for a different experience!

and you started to, subconsciuosly, worry about getting sick on subsequent flights. Your mind believes you're going to get sick, even before you get on a plane, and so you feel nauseous.
This is very true!! I can't recall ever getting seasick in the past. But after one rotten ferry trip last year when I joined a least a dozen other passengers taking turns feeding the fish at the rail at the back of the boat, this changed. Every time I have been on the ferry since, after a few minutes out from the port (not even in big waves), dizzyness, cold sweat, mouth watering, rotten stomach feeling... all the warning signs... and I spend the rest of the trip outside at the rail.
I'm sure this will make people laugh their asses off, but sometimes when waiting in line to board the ferry, if I look at the boat moving gently at the dock, I get queasy and almost throw up... standing on solid ground! Twice it was so bad, I had to leave the lineup, and take a later ferry.
I know this is all subconscious; the result of one bad journey, but the consequences are real. Multiple smooth trips since haven't reversed the symptoms.
