    Default Got sick and was fine

    I waited several months to post this to see if the effects would last but I got sick early this year and was completely fine. I had taken some vitamins on an empty stomach and started to feel severely nauseated so I went outside and sat on the porch to do some breathing. I found that going outside helps me greatly, whenever I fear that I might get sick I feel claustrophobic and pace around as if trying to escape it. So I was outside breathing and I felt it coming on so I sat down and took off my glasses (for some reason) and it happened and I was fine, it really wasn't that bad. It was like I didn't really have time to panic too much because it happened so quick and I didn't really have time to react. After that I went inside and watched TV, and since then I haven't really felt afraid of V. Not sure if that'll last forever but it's been almost a year now so I thought I'd share.

    That is a great story to share and very reassuring. Thank you for taking the time to post it for us. I hope you have managed to get past this phobia (or at least that it is less severe). Genuinely.

    That what happened with me, I went 34 years, with out vomiting, I think my worry was not understanding what it felt like, so I used to Imagine it was a lot worse than what it really was. So when it did finally happen, I was like oh is this it, I now no longer dread winter, oh by the way the nausea so much worse and miserable than actually vomiting.
