Scared Of Vomit.

Hi everyone. I am 14 years old and have a big fear of vomiting. I don't know if it's normal. I really would like to get some help. Since I am totally terrified of vomiting I don't eat enough.Not long ago I went to the doctor and I got told that I had lost 12 pounds and I have to gain at least 5 more pounds.Usually when I get the feeling of throwing up my body starts shaking and i panic start to get really cold. I mostly get this vomiting feeling when I feel so full after eating and mostly since I don't have a really good digestive system. My parents think that the best when having problems digesting is to throw up. They have to force me to vomit if not both my parents grab me and make me throw up. I always feel like eating but that feeling of vomiting keeps me from eating. I just want to be able to eat normal again and I want to get over my fear.

Tell your doctor what's going on..About your parents. What they're doing is actually quite unhealthy for you, mental and physically. They need to stop, and what better way to get them to take it seriously than by having them hear it from a doctor. Maybe if that stops you'll be able to eat a little bit more. I struggle with Emetophobia too..if you ever need anything, don't hesitate to ask. (:
