Overcome emetophobia

No one enjoys throwing up or seeing others be sick. But some people have an intense fear of vomiting (no matter how unlikely it is to occur), or seeing someone else vomiting. Sufferers of emetophobia can feel physical symptoms of nausea or dizziness at just the thought of vomit in any form.

You may think that this phobia would be fairly easy to manage as a healthy person. But in fact, emetophobia can have a dramatic impact on people’s lives. Avoiding social situations, delaying visits with family or friends if you fear they might be sick, and not failing to take care of your own health, (such as not visiting a doctor when there’s a genuine need for fear of catching a bug) are some common consequences of this debilitating condition. But it doesn’t have to be this way.
