  • Does anybody else suffer from Emetophobia??

    I have suffered emetophobia all my life, i have heard it is quite common (up until last year i belived i was unique)
    i would be very intrested in hearing of anybody else who suffers this fear.. and anything you have to share

    if you do not know what it is please google it as just the word (name) can upset some sufferers so i am not going to write it on here x
  • How to make others understand?

    I have a fiance, who is very understanding ect... but as a complete opposite to me he is a total adrenaline junkie and so as you can imagine has practically no fear (sometimes wonder if he is human!)
    I suffer anxierty, panic disorder, emetophobia and mild OCD. I am on a high dose of medication and regular therapys to help.
    I am improving and being with my fiance for 6 years now he has seen the really bad and the good.

    however when im having "good" times... i may be quiet or tierd and exhausted because my mind is always working overtime... you know how it is.
    he cannot understand (although has really tried to)
    he can see when i am bad.. (self harm, illness, general fast weight loss ect.) - i do not get bad anymore (touch wood.. 2 years now!)

    I dont know how i can make him understand how it can mentally drain you, and how it can make you upset or isolated (including very low libido)
    i have tried speaking with him.. for hours and he listens but it just cant "click" in his head.

    any tips or any way of helping would be much appriciated.. he really wants to understand, he wants to be able to tell how i am doing and how he should react to how i am feeling.

    thank you in advance.
  • Phobias with GAD is driving me insane

    I was diagnosed with generalized anxiety disorder a little over two years ago. My neurologist, who I see for my temporal lobe epilepsy, prescribed Clonazepam to combat the anxiety attacks that I have. However, the level of severity changes with both the seasons and situations that I am in. Since it is sliding into Autumn and Winter, all I think is that everyone is going to start getting sick and my emetophobia is the first thing that takes over causing anxiety attacks three times as bad as the ones I typically get. When I have an attack nausea is the first side effect which due to my phobia exacerbates the situation in a circular motion, making it perpetually get worse. When you lump my basic hypochondria into the situation, it just doesn't seem to get any better whatsoever. I've become so nervous all of the time that I literally feel like I'm going insane. If it wasn't for my willpower I would have broken down a long time ago. I'm trying this website because I'm trying to find a place that can truly help, even in the littlest bit. I'm losing it and no one in my life is understanding or remotely helpful and I don't know what to do.
  • School with anxitey

    For the past two years I've done online school due to my mental illnesses, agrophobia and emetophbia. I'm starting public school again this year, and if high school wasn't hard enough. I'm terrified of seeing, hearing, etc of getting sick so I don't know how I'm going to get through that. I'm anxious of simply seeing the people I left for online school as I've drifted away from them. Overall I don't want to mess up.
