The doctor probes further and finds the kid only gets nauseous on school days. In fact, he only gets nauseous on school days when he has a particular gym class.
The doctor asks the kid if there are any problems in that gym class, and the kid is reluctant to say anything. After a while, he finally admits there is a bully in that class.
The mother calls the school, and the school takes care of the bully. After that the kid is no longer nauseous in the mornings.
