okay so i have Emotophobia (fear of vomiting) and the stomach virus has been going around my school lately , and im really scared that i might get it . i got it before , when i was 7, and it was not pretty . all i literally did was vomit . and now im all freaked out that i might get it & ill have a repeat of the past . my stomach has been hurting lately but idk if it's just nerves or if it's just all in my head .

I also have emetophobia, & dread the idea of catching a stomach bug. I haven`t had one since 1970, but I remember wishing that someone would come & shoot me & put me out of my misery. I used to buy Motillium from the chemist in case I caught a bug, but now they don`t sell it over the counter, so I`m wondering if there`s an effective drug that I can get that`s safe to use.


I also have emetophobia. My local hospital is currently closed to visitors because of the norovirus. I hate this time of year so much. I wish people would just show basic hygiene and wash their hands!
