    ok i've been reading up on emetophobia for awhile now because i'm pretty sure i have it. i would never want to have to v**** ever but i also have a fear of other people doing. i can't be around it, see it, smell it, even when people pretend to do it i get freaked out. is that still emetophobia or is there another name for that as well?

    Any fear of vomiting in any form is emetophobia. The phobia has a wide range from mild discomfort to acute phobia to PTSD (post-traumatic-stress-disorder), the most severe form of it. It can be triggered by anything associated with vomiting (yourself, others, etc.)

    it's really a horrible fear. if you're afarid of roller coasters, just don't go to an amusement park. if you're afraid of snakes, don't go to a pet store. if you're afraid of eggs, don't eat eggs. but it's like hey i'm afraid of V* andi have no idea when or where it'll happen. i thought i was all alone for awhile and then an "aquaintence" had the same problem. i read up on it and finally found a name for it and now...a whole community.


    its sucks that people thing it's a joke and they constantly make fun of me.i mean yea it's kind of a weird phobia but we all have weird phobias and i've respected everyone else's. some of the girls that i work with were talking to me and one has a fear of whales and big boats another had a fear of ET....i don't know if they have names for that. so we definitely have a better fear cuz ours has a name! haha.


    i just hope this isn't a lifelong thing. as of right now i don't want to have any kids but if i do...i AM NOT dealing with morning sickness...or my own kid getting sick. i'd rather.....i have no idea, but i'm not doing it. [img]smileys/smilies_06.gif[/img]

    Well look at it this way: at least we're not afraid of something that does not even exist.
