    I voted 10. I am anxious almost daily - and all day or night long. All the time. Every evening, I spend sitting on my bed, with my trashcan beside me, a piece of tp or a kleenex INCASE I v*... as I've v*d before and it's awful when you have nothing to wipe your mouth on... my Pepto... my Phenergan... a bottle of water... tv up FULL blast and fan on high. A bit OCD? Yes, yes I am. I am worried about v* everyday of my life in some way or another.

    Mine is generally 4 but if I find myself in a situation where someone looks like they might v* or are actually v*g then def 10 and panic sets in and I'm instantly nauseous

    At this point in my life I'm at about a 9. Hoping to get to a steady 5 or 6 once I start therapy and eventually end up at zero!

    I would say that it is around a 4 on a nauseous day; other days a 1.It used to be a pure 10 all of the time, but I have spent years and years self-helping myself and my own anxiety my way, and I honestly feel like that is the best way. I'm obviously not over my phobia, but it has gotten WAY easier for me, and I hope it'll just keep getting better.

    I was say about a 9 for the pat month. I've missed so much school, stayed up for nights at a time, isolated myself in my house for days at a time, etc. however I started taking Zoloft about a month ago and within the past week I've been able to control it a little better. might have to up the dose but I'd say I'm currently a 6

    It's really hard to say because it varies for me.

    On a bad day, it's a 9 and on a good day, it's a 1 or even 0. But, lately, it's been around the 4 - 8 mark because of winter approaching and such.

    Daily is 7-8. I have to work with some nasty people at my job. They come in while sick. When I hear that someone at the office is or has been sick I go to a 10.
    I miss my old job... 😕

    I can usually suppress it when outside, but when something "bad" happens (like hearing the words associated with it, someone saying they've been sick etc) I get suuuper scared. At worst I completely shut down and I get a weird feeling like I'm outside of myself. It's weird and stressful. So it can be everything from 5 to a 10 I guess!

    On a daily basis - 1.
    When I feel very sick at home - 7 or 8.
    When I feel very sick in public - solid 10.

    Honestly, my fear level kinda depends, but compared to some of the things I've seen here, I'd say maybe a 3-5 for me...
    Being brave isn't the absence of fear. Being brave is having that fear but finding a way through it.

    Mine is a 10. I have severe contamination OCD as a result of my Emetophobia so that I am mostly housebound. I am scared of touching anything that has been handled by anyone outside of my immediately family including in shops etc. and think about it near constantly!
