I have a job interview today. I feel like a loser already.
I'm really nervous.. I couldnt sleep all night. I got this nauseating feeling an hour ago. My hands started trembling and I threw up. I'm still feeling even more nervous and sick now... ugh.
Ever got so nervous that you threw up?

It is a time-honored tradition in aviation that flight instructors will not tell you the exact day of your first solo flight. They'll kind of hint that it's coming, but they never actually tell you the exact day.
Mine first solo flight was just that way. My instructor actually hopped out of the plane when we finished the run up! He shouted, "Gimme three touch-and-go's." and walked away. No sooner had he walked away than the tower said, "77 Foxtrot [I'll always remember my first solo plane's number] cleared for take off on 25, left standard departure." I literally had no time to be nervous.
When I did the final 3rd landing, I taxied to the FBO and they pulled me from the plane (I was like jelly) and gave me a T-shirt with my name on it, the date, and the caption "TAKE NO PRISONERS" and hosed me off (another time-honored tradition). Now, given that my legs were like jelly, I suddenly realized how thrilling and nerve wracking the whole thing was! If I had time to think about it, who knows what would have happened!0
How did your interview go?
Yes yes i did aaalmost!
I hope you dont mind reading this story lol:
In the morning when still at home, i was sooo nervous, because i planned on talking to my crush that day, i literally felt the sour taste in my throat, but luckily didn't vomit, i was on the edge of throwing up lol. I took a few deep breaths and it went away. You see, im shy lol and find these things difficult xD.
When the moment came to talk to her, i chickened out.. Next day it started all over again. After a few days i did walk up to her and started talking, i was trembling, almost sweating, my heart was racing, lightheaded lol and then some other guy kind of cockblocked me LOL, while he KNEW that i was crushing on her.
After a few minutes after that she came to me and we talked more, and i asked her to chat to me during the break the next day, oh my goodness, that chat the next day was the most awkward thing I've ever experienced lol.. I doubt if i can ever get her after that happened.. :(
Basically we had a lot of silences and we werent really talking, we were just standing, i was too freaking nervous. Her friends were looking at us and probably thinking like "wtf are they doing together there?". I really felt worthless after that, so ashamed. I doubt if she will ever like me, cuz i like her so much0
I hope the interview went well for you. :-)1
yo @Genie23 1st of all sorry didn't see this question when i could have actually helped you but as it is that i'm seeing it now let me give you some sure shot ways to relieve yourself during such situations
1stly u need to get rid of the nauseous feeling for that try a slice of lemon (i. e. sour stuff) ... best if u could get one of those small nimbus and lick on a slice... this will make u get rid of the nauseous feeling to a great extent
2ndly take a antacid or general stomach medicine to stop your stomach problem incase its being caused by acidity or gastric problem or something like that
3rdly... take a medicine to stop your vomiting (remember in all other cases you should rather vomit and get the stuff out of your system) but when u r going for a job interview puking infront of your boss doesn't really make u a career :P
4thly nest you will need a food supplement to give yourself strength... go for general vitamin tablets or if u up for it munch on a few dry crackers nothing fancy
5th, stuffs like ginger tea, electrolytic drinks (best if u can get fresh coconut milk) are good to bring the taste back to you and stop vomiting & stay hydrated at a time like this remember though do not drink stuffs high in caffeine at a time like this or anything that will cause acidity
6th... one you feel better in order to get rid of your anxiety and nervousness try giving a intro/or whatever u r gonna say to the interviewer infront of the mirror... watch some funny stuffs to divert your mind... best remedy is to talk to a friend or family
7th... NAIL THE GODDAMN INTERVIEW AND OWN THOSE BITCHES :P ;)
[ HOPE THIS HELPS U , IF U EVER GET IN SUCH A TROUBLE... I STAY ALONE SO I'VE PERFECTED THIS METHODS OVER THE LAST FEW YEARS... REMEMBER #whatDoesn'tKillUmakesUStronger :P0
Do you know the Kruger - Dunning research? It explains how unskilled workers are actually unaware of their incompetence. You're nervous because you feel you're not gonna get the job. That's actually good. That means you're not unskilled.
Problem is my logic is super flawed. :D You're gonna be okay, though.
And to answer your question: no. When i get really nervous, i have the runs. I think it's worse. Especially if you like spicy food.0
i had one earlier today :( it didn't work out...
i hope yours went well, you have no reason to be worried!
i would hire you :)0
Being an suffer from anxiety issues i can say that i've never thrown up, but i've wretched a few time. Find a piece of music that relaxes you, and take a few minutes to take long deep breathes in through your nose and out (slowly) from your mouth, you want to aim for about 8 'cycles' a minute0
her is a note for next time you feel nervous. eat gum. it works. it tricks your brain into thinking that you are in no danger because if you were, why would you be eating0
No, that has never happened. But it's all good. Your body is preparing for fight or flight. See we're still animals really.0
awe :3 no hope you get better though don't ever feel like they're better than you0
Good luck on the interview0
why do you scare so much, job must be important for you.0

Relax, @Genie23, you will do Fine. Your amazing abilities and great personality and pretty face will get you Everywhere.
I never 'Threw up' but I have gotten the runs having to Run to the bathroom when stressed.
Good luck. xx0
I'm rather lucky and nerves are not something I get, probably because I'm too stupid to understand the gravity of the situations. I mean I get a little nervous, but not about interviews or things like that. If I had to catch a baby I'd be nervous as hell though!
I hope the interview went well :)0
I will do you one better: I was once so excited that I threw up. Met an actor I had a crush on in high school. Was so happy that I threw up when I got home.0
Didn't actually throw up, thankfully. haha But I remember feeling nauseous for a few days before my driving exam. I couldn't calm myself down. Same for when I had my med school admission exam, but only in the morning of the exam.0
take medication and see if that helps.0
No, that never happened to me. Just be yourself and breath in and out to try and stay calm, you'll do great girly. Good luck :) <30
