Being Sick Sucks But These Stock Photos Of Women Vomiting Are Weirdly Amusing

“Hello? Mommy? I don’t feel good.”

This post is weird and a bit gross, but I’m not sorry. I’m sick today. It’s not delicate and it’s not dignified, but it’s definitely distracting. I can barely see my keyboard.

The thing about gut-ailments is that it’s always worse than you remembered. When it’s over, there is no recalling the torture and pain of cramps, puking and, er, other symptoms of stomach sickness. It’s all too traumatizing to fully process.

Being sick may be horrible, but corny stock photos are always funny. These goofy pictures of women puking are making me chuckle between up-chucks.

    I don’t see the humour of women with fingers down their throats? That’s not a viral illness, that’s bulimia.

      Thank you-I totally agree. As someone in recovery from bulimia, those images are extremely triggering.

      I interpret that particular hand maneuver to signify gagging that isn’t necessarily symptomatic of an eating disorder.
