This was my life with emetophobia...
Eating in restaurants or other people's homes became impossible since I couldn't control the kitchen and it's cleanliness. It's pretty insulting to the host to not eat anything at Thanksgiving... what could I say? I'm afraid you're dirty and your food will make me puke?
I was absolutely plagued by panic attacks - this terror that my worst fears would come true or I'd lose control over the situation I was trying so desperately to hold together.
It seemed like my whole day was spent thinking about how I could avoid vomit or someone that might vomit, and what would happen if I couldn't escape it. It was constantly running through my head and not being able to control my thoughts was scary....
I avoided traveling by plane, bus, or boat. I was just too concerned it would make me nauseous.
Taking my kids on rides at the carnival? Forget it.
Ever see those big huge containers of antibacterial soap? I think they made those just for me. I would wash and sterilize everything when I cooked or did things around the house. I was terrified of getting a germ that would make me ill and result in my throwing up.
I would spend hours researching a prescription if I was given one and if it listed "nausea" as a side effect, plop... in the trash can.
I would obsess something would happen to me and I'd need to be hospitalized. Hospitals are FULL of sick people!
Since I would only eat what I considered "safe" foods, I was extremely underweight.
I didn't tell a soul because I was sure they'd think I was weird and because my phobia was so "dirty" and embarrassing. It was lonely and scary.Visit the official site
