So because of things I've been around all my life, I am TERRIFIED of throwing up. Like, to the point of shaking and crying and begging to be taken somewhere. Does anyone else experience something like this?

      Hi NagitoStan. It sounds like you may have 'Emetophobia.' "A disproportionate fear of vomiting, or emetophobia, is a chronic and disabling condition which is characterized by a tendency to avoid a wide array of situations or activities that might increase the risk of vomiting." -NIH Although it is a phobia, it typically is a result of trauma & therefore treatment often involves trauma-based methods (CBT, EMDR). If you already have a Psychiatrist &/or Therapist, I would recommend speaking to them about your symptoms & how best to treat/manage. If not- this may be a good time to look into seeing a therapist/psychologist. I wish you the very best 💕

      Obviously I don't know all of your life experiences, but this does sound like a trigger for panic attacks.
