    Consumes Me Completely :(

    For the last five years my emetophobia has been running my life. At the age of 17 I became extremely ill. I threw up about once or twice a day for a one month period. After about twenty different doctors appointments and a battery of tests they told me that my gallbladder wasn't...

    Not For Weak Stomachs

    When I have a stomach virus, it is worse than anything for me.  This is rather odd to share, but I will share it anyway.  When I puke, I make the loudest noise ever.  My nose bleeds, and it comes out both nostrils.  My eyes water and I sweat. ...

    Hate It

    I think the worst part about vomiting is the anticipation......we all know what Im talking about...the sweating,.....the chills......the constant salivating.....Nothing is worse. You don't want to move, because if you move, it may make you throw up, but sitting still isn't much...

    The Last Time....

    the last time i vomited was 17 years ago.  I popped every blood vessel in my face doing it.  Afterwards, i looked like a demon spawn due to all the red dots, which in a short time turned to purple dots all over my face.  It has never been easy for me, and really...

    Vomit

    I hate vomitting and today, I'm constantly vomitting and drained from it.  I'm looking online and can't find anything.  Can it be a sign of the flu or can it be something else? UPdate: I'm getting another yeast infection apart from vomitting.  :(

    Its Awful!

    I cry like a baby if I vomit. Am so terrified that I sit beside the toilet and howl. Somehow it sends this message to my brain that I can't breathe and this experience will never stop. Absolutely frightens the crap out of me - well, not literally.

    I hate the feeling of being out of control. Vomiting is so inevitable and once you know you're going to be sick, you can try to distract yourself of feebly administer lay 'medical' aid ('I know - water! Lovely, lovely water and maybe an Alka Selzer!'), but it churns and rumbles...

    Yeah. I admit it. I'm scared to vomit. But... See, when I puke, its damned near violent. I can't help but make that, "Whhhaarrrggghh!" vomit warcry when I hork. That... And it hurts like someone's tied a string to my diaphragm and started tugging. HARD.

    Terrible Vomiter

    for me, being sick is one of the most traumatic experiences. I'm never just sick once, I normally puke at least 5-10 times throughout the night...and becasue I suffer from excess stomach acid it burns my throat and tonsils to ****.

    I'm Afraid Of Puke.

    Even the thought of it makes my tummy hurt. I hate seeing it on tv, I hate hearing it and I get this intese panicky feeling whenever someone says they feel ill. I am afraid to get sick myself and do anything to keep myself from it. I dont know if I'll ever get over it.
