I had a close bond with my mom as most babies do, and I had horrible seperation anxiety
from her. Whenever she would leave me (to
work, a store, etc) I would get anxiety
. For me, anxiety always meant overwhelming nausea. As a toddler, you dont have the awareness yet to just say "okay, I am feeling anxious and that is why I am nauseous and shakey". I just associated the nausea with something horribly traumatic happening (my mom leaving).
