View Full Version : Emetophobia, i need help.
11-14-2011, 04:18 PM
I have a few types of anxiety but the one which affects me most is my emetophobia, the fear of vomit. I am 16, and have that this for 7 years. I struggle with doing everyday things because i am afraid of vomit, not so much vomit itself, just not knowing when and where it could happen. I get this feeling when i have 'panic attacks' or am worrying that makes me feel like im going to puke, and it makes me immediately want to go home from where i am because i feel sick. I'm lost on what to do and have tried many things such as books, programs, counselors, and nothing seems to help. Does anyone have any suggestions on ways for dealing with panic attacks, ways to calm down?

HI.. I suffer from the same phobia of the V word! I dont even use words that imply it like the T word or the V word or the P word!! I have suffered from this phobia since I was 4-5 years old. I have recently started to see a therapist. I am clueless on what to do or how to go about getting help for this. I have called over a dozen therapists and they have all barely even heard of this. Let me know if you find out any helpful stuff on here.
your not alone!!

I suffer from it too. Just remember the people who have a phobia are best at having it NOT happen. I am 30 and haven't thrown up for 10 years! REMEMBER THAT!!
