advice

Describe the wackiest but most useful advice you’ve ever received.

When I was pregnant, I was also in the last year of seminary. Morning sickness hit about October. I didn’t get as sick as many do but I was almost constantly nauseous. A dear friend who had two children said, “Try this. It sounds completely odd but it worked fabulously for me. Eat some lemon yogurt. Everyone will tell you to eat crackers. That didn’t really help me but lemon yogurt did.”

It worked for me, too. Finally, the morning sickness faded. But until it did, I survived on lemon yogurt, bananas, and milk.
