Feature on People Suffering from Emetophobia

by on June 5, 2013

Emetophobia is a preoccupation with the fear that one will be physically ill. People who have emetophobia are also afraid of being around others who are being sick.

While normal people obviously wish to avoid being near someone who is vomiting, emetophobic people will go to extreme lengths. They worry about people being sick constantly, even under circumstances in which their worries are excessive or unfounded.

Mothers with emetophobia often have to struggle with the extreme anxiety they feel when their child or children becomes ill. Even a mild illness can lead a child to vomit, especially a young child. A mother with emetophobia may be too fearful and distressed to comfort or tend to a sick child. This fear also makes some young women reluctant to become mothers, because they do not think they will be able to deal with their child’s illness appropriately.

Having emetophobia is difficult for people who are not parents, as well. Everyday decisions that most people take for granted, such as eating out, can be very frightening for people with emetophobia. They are often too afraid to eat food away from home, which they believe may lead them to be sick.

Mental health problems are given quite a bit of attention by people in the UK. A popular publication recently featured an article about emetophobia. The piece includes quotes from several people with emetophobia. These individuals bravely express how their lives have been affected by having such a severe and persistent fear.

If you would like to read more about the people with emetophobia, you can find the link to the Daily Mail feature article below.

I’m not sure exactly why but this blog is loading very slow for me.
Is anyone else having this issue or is it a issue on my end?
I’ll check back later on and see if the problem still exists.

Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year
old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.
There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!

Carb-loading is so deeply ingrained in endurance sports it may come as a shock to learn that the gluten-free, low-carb Paleo diet can help endurance athletes achieve peak performance.
There are several positive aspects to fiber, some of which consist of lowering the risk of diabetes and coronary heart
illness. Humans during this time only hunted and gathered food.

Hello there, I do believe your website could be having internet browser compatibility problems.

Whenever I take a look at your site in Safari, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping issues.
I simply wanted to provide you with a quick heads up! Other than that, excellent site!

Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this site.
It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s very hard to
get that “perfect balance” between user friendliness and appearance.
I must say you have done a superb job with this. Also, the blog loads super
quick for me on Firefox. Outstanding Blog!

I have been browsing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any
interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me.
In my view, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be a lot more useful than ever before.

Thank you

Hello there! This blog post couldn’t be written any better!

Looking through this article reminds me of my previous roommate!
He constantly kept preaching about this. I will forward this post
to him. Fairly certain he’s going to have a very good read.

Thanks for sharing!

I do not know whether it’s just me or if perhaps everybody else experiencing problems with your website.
It appears like some of the written text within your content are running off the screen. Can somebody else please provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to them as well?
This might be a issue with my internet browser because I’ve had this happen previously.
Thank you

First of all I want to say fantastic blog! I had a quick question which I’d like to ask
if you do not mind. I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your head
before writing. I have had a hard time clearing
my mind in getting my ideas out there. I do take pleasure in writing but it just
seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are lost just trying to figure out how to
begin. Any recommendations or hints? Thanks!

Does your website have a contact page? I’m having a tough
time locating it but, I’d like to send you an e-mail.
I’ve got some ideas for your blog you might be
interested in hearing. Either way, great blog and I look forward to seeing it improve over time.

a captcha plugin for my comment form? I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having problems finding one?
Thanks a lot!

I am really loving the theme/design of your weblog.
Do you ever run into any internet browser compatibility issues?
A few of my blog visitors have complained about my blog not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Safari.
Do you have any solutions to help fix this problem?
