16 and emetophobic :)
« on: March 16, 2014, 01:45:19 AM »
Heya, new person here, just thought id introduce myself :)

I'm 16 and have had what id call a pretty bad fear of vomiting since I was maybe 12, this causes me to have odd eating patterns, at the moment im struggling with eating enough food every day but hopefully ill get out of this rut soon :)  But it's only recently that it has turned from a fear of feeling ill to just general anxiety (somewhat caused by my fear of panic attacks... not a fun cycle to be in)

Basically, I'm trying a lot of different things to try and get better, and one of those things was to seek out help or just general support in others in my situation online, so here I am :)

I'm Paige, nice to meet you all *handshake* :)

Hi Paige!

I'm new too, but thought I'd mention that I, too, had a more moderate version of vom phobia from elementary age on up until early thirties. You just taught a new vocab word to some of us!

It's only recently that I managed to think my way out of the total panic attacks I used to get from it, which is a major milestone. I hope you see that happy day before your teens are over. :-)

It's GREAT that you're recognizing your condition this early, and choosing to take constructive action. Good job!!
