Re: My emetophobia.
I have the same fear, have had it since I was little. Whenever I would get sick, I would have to wake my mother up to go to the bathroom with me because of the panic attacks. As I got older (I am now 31) it has gotten worse. I have become a germaphob as well. I cannot do anything without washing my hands, and I really don't like going out in public. If someone around me is sick, I have panic attacks, if I throw up, panic attacks, if I hear someone (even miles away) has been throwing up, I feel nauseous. I cannot rationalize it in my mind. Just wanted to say that you are so not alone!
