Hi Im 18 and have been housebound for almost 8 months now and it’s due to my emetophobia (which wasn’t listed) and anxiety and I just needed to find a community who understands cause it’s been pretty tough so hello! :)
Nausea and Vomiting
Anxiety (Including GAD)
Cyclic Vomiting Syndrome (CVS)
Hi! I've got a friend with emetophobia, and I've got enough anxiety for my state lol. We'll help eachother out!
What is emetophobia?
Fear of vomiting
TW:talks of sick
Emetophobia is a severe fear of throwing up and nausea and it causes a ton of anxiety
Ugh I feel that, I got alcohol poisoning on nye and it was not a fun time for me
Oh gosh yeah that sounds awful, I had a close friend get alcohol poisoning about a year ago and it was a scary experience. I’m sorry you had to deal with that.
It's alright, I just took a long 20 hour nap
Naps are the best
I took one yesterday cuz I'm extremely sick and it was like a blink to me
Naps are the best and i’m sorry you’re sick :/
Hope you start to feel better😕
Me too, I've had a consistent 102 fever the past 2 days
Ooooh thats no fun
that’s not good at all :( i hope the fever slows down soon
Hey I feel you. I have emetophobia too as well as Generalized Anxiety Disorder. It's so hard to live with. People are always like "How are you scared to throw up? I feel better when I do! It's uncomfortable, but I'm not afraid of it!!" I'm always scared to take antibiotics because once like 6 years ago, I threw up from them. But if I take them with a full meal, I'm fine. I understand your pain. I hope you feel better soon!
I’m also scared to take antibiotics!! Most medications freak me out and I totally relate to people not understanding and I’ve had to avoid parties and stuff all through high school because of the fear of someone getting sick and then I start to panic because of it! Thank you and same goes I hope you’re doing alright!
Hi! I get it. I’m terrified of people throwing up. My fear has lessened a ton as I have grown up a bit, but it’s still there.. it’s worse when the profession you want to go into has the potential of people vomiting daily…
It is super difficult to live with this and Im happy yours has lessened! With that being said your career choice sounds like a great example of feeling the fear and doing it anyways i’m happy for ya!
My friend found something that works for her with this. Its a bracelet and it sends light shocking vibrations to your wrist and does something with your brain. Im not to knowledgeable on the topic but its worth looking up.
Word! I have some pressure point motion sickness bracelets that look like sweatbands but i’ll look into that cause it sounds good to have :)
