What can I do to better self soothe or cope when nauseas? I have been severely afraid of vomiting ever since I gained consciousness at like 5ish. I have also always been a generally anxious kid (hence the asd), but I grew out of a lot of my phobias with time and proper exposure. I get sick fairly frequently whether from food or virus, 2-5 periods of throwing up per year, none if I’m lucky and skip a year of stomach bug. But I can’t handle the anxiety when I’m worried I’m about to throw up. The adrenaline makes it all so much worse. I rock back and forth and stim and yawn repetitively to help, and I take stomach meds when needed/helpful. Does anyone else have experience with emetophobia (and maybe also asd or even anxiety) or have tips for how to self soothe when nauseas/worried ab throwing up?

Some ways to cope with emetophobia and nausea include taking anxiety medication, rationalizing the situation by considering factors like recent exposure to sick people or unusual food, and distracting yourself with activities like coloring or watching a movie. It's also helpful to have understanding family members or friends who can support you during these times.
