Terrified of vomiting

I'm terrified of vomiting. Last week or so, I woke up in the middle of the night and threw up for the first time in 2-3 years. That experience has just made my fear worse. But the worst part is that now I have extreme anxiety whenever I'm going to sleep to the point where it's making me feel sick. It's an endless cycle. I just need some advice on what to do. I can't get any sleep and I'll be spending all day worrying about going to sleep when I should be focusing on school and other things. I'm failing four classes and we've barely just started the school year. I don't know what to do :(

Hi there I also have a little girl who is 9 with the fear of being sick. I know how much she worries and I can only sympathise. I would like to promise you that being sick will not cause you any harm, it is purely your body getting rid of something it no longer needs which you should view as a good thing. I recommend you look up mindfulness and try to get into that, it focuses on the present moment using ancient Buddhist practices and meditation. It will really help you focus on what is important I.e your school work. Maybe visit your doctor and ask for some CBT counselling it's very good. I wish you all the luck in the world, be strong and don't let this worry beat you X Mel


Hi there!! I'm 20 years old an I have had this fear for aslong as I can remember! It is a Horrible thing to be afraid of! Constantly sitting waiting for something bad to happen with the anxiety it brings along with it! Sometimes you feel ok then bang it just comes on all of a sudden! I have recently been saving to be hypnotised by emeptiphobia! Maybe you should look on there website and see if you can get any help their , they do a book called emeptiphobia thrive , and a lot of people have said it helped them! Unfortunately I didn't stick to the book as I be so anxious I can't sit and read k always have to be doing something to take my mind of it! Give there website a search and see if there's anyway they can help you!! I have yet to be cured but all I can do is hope!! And I hope you get sorted!!
