    Hi, when I am more anxious, I think I focus on emet more. I guess they go together.


    In the last few years my stressful job caused me a lot of anxiety.


    In the last 10 years my parents' rejection of me being gay has caused me a lot of anxiety. My partner and I are having a commitment ceremony next month and I am petrified my parents will find out and disown me again. They reacted really badly when I came out 10 years ago. S


    o I feel this worry, anxiety is subconsciously making me focus on emet. Flee

    The part of my body most effected when I am anxious is my stomach with churning, knotting sensations which lead to nausea, hence my emet gets worse at these times.

    Flee- I am so sorry that your parent's reacted that way. I congradulate you in your commitment ceremony. It really irks me the way families disown their own children, bro's, sis's, etc. would they do the same if you were mentally disabled? if you had cancer? etc.? probly not. at least you know that you are commiting to someone who will always be there for you and always be part of your family, no matter what happens! and i agree, emet and anxiety go hand in hand, mostly because anxiety feels like nausia which brings to thought being sick.

    When someone around me is v*ing I have a panic attack and my anxiety kicks in which in turn makes me feel sick. So its a vicious circle.

    Yeah I don't really have anxiety unless i'm feeling nauseous or unwell or think someone around me is going to V*. I don't really get anxiety about other things so I don't know what to put in that poll - if i'm anxious or worried about something else, it probably take my mind off Emet. Odd that.

    No, I don't think so. Actually if I am very nervous about something, I
    forget my emet for a little while. Those days are to live for..
