I have been struggling with emetophobia for the past year or so. it has become so extreme and I feel that I can no longer handle it. I have panic attacks in the car and in school. I have a panic attack at least once a day due to my fear. I will refuse to eat and I will often take motion sickness medication to make me feel better. I need help and support because I don't know how much longer I can take if this crippling disorder. thanks!

OMG girl I swear we are twins 😱 I know it's hard but and lucky for me I'm going through a break from my anxiety but I know exactly how you feel. One thing that does suck is eating, I know because I hated to eat but I just remember if I burp and it is like food taste im not going to get sick if it's more like vomit I decide to take some pepto or other medication, for driving it's really all in your/ my head unfortunately so we just have to distract ourself and I have not yet found a way to except maybe using my phone but idk it works sometimes, for school think of it as a distraction instead of a trigger, I used to freak out more at school until I changed my thought process, VERY HARD!!!!!!! Maybe join an activity that you enjoy, I personally love softball which also distracts me, I always bring medicine with me just incase I "feel sick" I also bring water just incase of the " lump in my throat" I'm not to sure if you feel this too but that really sucks.. 😷 either way message me any time if you feel like you are going to explode, sorry this is sooooo long but I hope this helps because it's been helping me through this
