Emetophobia is the irrational fear of vomiting, fear of being around others who are vomiting, and/or the fear of the vomit itself.

No one likes to be sick, especially in public. Illness is a private affair. But if you have a fear of throwing up in public or in private, to the point that it causes you to act irrationally - then you may have emetophobia or the fear of vomiting.

You maybe so scared of vomiting that you won't eat or you won't go out in public. The thought of catching a stomach virus may throw you into a panic. Just seeing vomit or the sounds of someone retching makes you want to runaway, far away.

Emetophobia is classified as an anxiety disorder. This is a serious disease.  It can cause panic attacks. It can make a sufferer crave social isolation, as the fear takes over their daily lives. In an effort to deal with the phobia, the Emet may stop going out in public and stop eating or eat very little. Some women with emetophobia will refuse to get pregnant for fear of morning sickness. Those with severe emetophobia will go to great lengths to avoid hospitals or anyone who might be sick. And just the thought of nausea of any sort will ruin their day.

Many people who suffer from emetophobia are diagnosed with anorexia or self-starvation. The Emet will stop at nothing to prevent themselves from vomiting and this includes the cessation of eating.

The idea is, if you do not eat food, there is no way that you can vomit or get sick. Ironically, eating food, after depriving oneself can often make the emetophobic person fell nauseous - thus giving feedback to the fear and reinforcing the phobia. Eating disorders are a very serious issue. The best thing to do is get back on a healthy diet. Diet Spotlight may be a good way to help you start and maintain a diet. A healthy diet with exercise and Diet Spotlight can be an amazing way to start recovering from an eating disorder.
