    They Dont Care

    I've told my parents several times but they just brush it off like it's nothing. "I don't like snakes but that doesnt mean that I have a phobia" is whata they say. I want to go to some kind of psychologist to get checked, to see if I can get rid of it. But how is that possible...

    Anyone who has emetaphobia,

    I feel for you! It's the worst phobia it's ruining my life. I feel like I'm going to stop eating again & the thought of hospital & dying scares me a lot less than being sick.

    I suffer with emetaphobia.

    I have done ever since I can remember. Being sick or someone else being sick terrifies me and I used to have panic attacks when my son was sick as I couldn't handle it all. Today I got pulled into a "meeting" at work to discuss my unprofessionalism as I refuse to work with a...
