    [img]smileys/smilies_06.gif[/img]When I was around seven or eight I became sick and I was sick over and over again, I would V up to ten times a day. Than I would recover and become sick again two days after I recovered. The same thing happened. Iwould V10 or more times a day than I would recover and in less than a week I would be sick again... and V. This went on for months. I almost died from dehydration. The doctors ran all kinds of tests and coldnt find any reason as to why I became so ill. The doctor said that it must have been a reinfection witha rotavirus. To top this off both of my parents were alcoholics and I was abused as a child. I became afraid ofV and my intoxicated parents wouldV all the time. They wouldV on me and chase me with their emet just to be cruel because they knew I was afraid of it. OnceI left home(at 16)this fear subsided and I wasnt sick again untill I became pregnant with my first baby(about 4 years later). My husband was very supportive. I am 8 months pregnant with my second baby now and my husband has no idea I fear this. I became so sick again just last January and I ended up hospitalized. I had a terribel experience at the hospital thatI wont even get into. This fear has returned worse than ever and is ruining my life.


    I start panicking when my toddler wakes up in the middle of the night. I am afraid she will become sick. I live alone right now(my husband is in the military) soI will have to take care of her. I want to care for her if she's sick but I don't think I would be capable of caring for her if she started to V. Last time I cared for her when she V I ended up sick two days later(Than I was hospitalized). That's how my fear returned worse than ever.


    I am also eight months pregnant so i'm more opt to V. I hope I don't V. Any encouragment would be great. Thanks for listening....

    "BIG encouragement vibes!" Hi! are you new to this site? If so welcome, if not, ignore me I'm dumb! I haven't been here long. That's so terrible about your parnets that must have been awful for you. As for your child, the odds of her getting sick while the daddy is away are very low, and if it does happen is there an in law you could call or something? Best of luck!

    Hi Amy,


    Welcome to the site. What a sad story! Oh my goodness - no wonder you've got this phobia. I wonder if, since your husband is in the military, if you're able to get free psychiatric help. I don't know if there are any good military psychiatrists or even psychologists, but there used to be because I've read some of their work.


    Cruise around this site, and you will find a lot of help. But professional help for a person with a background such as yours would be a really good idea.


    Good luck!

    Wow, I can imagine why you're so afraid. *hugs* I have heard that some
    women go through pregnancy without v* at all. My mom told me that she
    was sick when she was pregnant with me and my sister, but she didn't
    throw up once with my youngest sister. So try not to worry. That must be
    hard with your husband not being home, but do you have any close
    friends who could help you out if you needed it? Your fear is
    understandable, and if you have any close friends or realtives nearby,
    they would probably help you out.
    You'll be in my prayers!

    Roslynn,


    I find myself doing that sometimes, and it really creeps me out. I also often do that with people that are close to me such as family and friends.
