Show 089 Intro to Emetophobia or Fear of Throwing Up

Emetophobia is a strong, profound fear that your are gonna vomit or as the young ones say, throw up. It isn't so much about the actual throwing up but the intense fear of it. So much so that you structure your life to be as people and germ free as possible.

The hard part is to admit that you are doing avoidance work instead of dealing with this specific fear. Step one is laying the ground floor of information. Step two is finding credible safe resources to help you build your tool kit to recovery.

If you're having suicidal thoughts, contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline for immediate help: 1-800-273-TALK (8255)
