i’m 17 now and i’ve had a fear of sick since i was 7, what was weird is that at 14, 15, 16 it faded away and i was able to do more things and was generally less anxious. All of a sudden now i’m 17 and now there isn’t a night that goes by without me sat there in my bed having a panic attack because i’m nauseous. Another thing was everyone i’ve spoke to with my condition has thrown up relatively recently. i haven’t thrown up since i was 7, is that normal?

      I feel you on this. I used to have absolutely awful emetophobia. And then it faded and now its back. But. One thing that helps me is the idea of. Whats the worst thats gonna happen. What i throw up?? What if throwing up makes you feel better?. Its a thing of materializing it and making it less of an anxious point.
