My boyfriend is throwing up and upset. How do I comfort him?

Anonymous
I live with my boyfriend and he's got the stomach flu. He really hates throwing up and gets really worked up about it- he tries to hold it in which makes it even more unpleasant for him. He needs me to be right there with him when it happens, which is fine but I hate seeing him upset and uncomfortable. He's a super athletic tough guy and usually looks after me but he has a really hard time being sick.

Can anybody recommend some other ways to comfort him while it's actually happening? I know it's not going to be fun but I feel useless just telling him it's going to be okay and to let it out.
