Question: Will this ever get better? :( Emetophobia?
I have a phobia of vomiting (Emetophobia), and everything to do with it! And it just seems like there's nothing worth living for if this is what I'm going to be like for the rest of my life. Every day is a constant struggle, and I just seem to be panicking day in day out. I've had CBT (Cognative Behavioural Therapy) and that hasn't done nothing! Every time I leave the house I'm panicking for the next 3 days in case I come down with a tummy bug. It's getting beyond a joke now and I just can't do it any more. I constantly have diarrhea (sorry) which makes me panic even more because I'm scared I got a bug. Although it's the panicking that causes the tummy troubles! I don't know what else to do :( It just seems like a vicious cycle. Someone please help me :(
I've managed not to catch a sickness bug for 6 years, but I'm scared one's right around the corner :(
I can't give you advice. Because I'm in the SAME boat as you. When I read this I was like "oh my."
I have IBS and stress triggers mine off. Therefore it's there 24/7.
I can't sleep of a night because I'm scared I'll be ill. I live with my 4 year old nephew and I'm always scared he'll get sick.
I went away for a week last week and I promised myself if be free, and i tried my hardest, I had no pain, no worries, but as soon as I got back to my own town... It all started again.
I feel you girl /: and I hope your okay!
