Understanding Emetophobia or Fear of Being Sick
Emetophobia is known by many names (emetephobia, phagophobia, vomitophobia, vomit phobia, sickness phobia, fear of vomiting, fear of gagging, fear of swallowing, fear of choking, globus hystericus), but whatever you call it this condition can affect sufferers deeply. There are also a number of other fears that can be associated with a fear of being sick:
This is a condition that appears to affect more women than men and if you are someone who suffers with emetophobia, you will know only too well that the symptoms can seriously affect and limit your ability to enjoy life to the full as this condition can have a very disabling effect on the sufferer.
Many sufferers will avoid all places where there is a possibility of themselves,
or others, being sick: for example pubs, restaurants, clubbing, eating in front of
others. Due to the link between eating and potentially being sick, many sufferers
are a little obsessive about what, where and with who they will eat. Many view being
sick as 'horrible’, ‘dirty’, ‘yucky' etc, and so it is quite common for emetophobics

I am fourteen years old and I have lived with emetophobia since I was five. After nine years of a variety of therapies and other people trying to convince me that there was nothing to be afraid of, I finally found something that taught me that I had the power within me to overcome my fears. I started Thrive four months ago after a three week period of out of control anxiety, centered around the fear of vomiting, that left me unable to go to school, sleep, eat, or function in any rational way. After doing ONE session of Thrive with Rita on skype, I realized that I had the ability to change and control the thoughts that were in my head, so I could live a life without fear. Instead of relying on other people to tell me that I am ok, all I do is remember what I learned from Thrive, and I am ok. Things aren't always 100% perfect, but I always have something to rely on to comfort me and it comes from within now. Now, I've done about ten sessions of Thrive and am living a happy/healthy life
