Show Educates Public on Life with Emetophobia

While being sick is something everyone wants to avoid, emetophobics will take avoidance to the next level. People who have emetophobia are so afraid of vomiting that they can’t function in a healthy way. They feel compelled to do almost anything to keep from being sick.

Naturally, a mother who is afraid of sickness will have extreme difficulty handling her sick son or daughter. For a mother of three with another child on the way, her emetophobia led to feelings of guilt and self-loathing. In addition to this, the woman struggled with the worry that her significant other would eventually become frustrated and leave her.

As you can see, emetophobia is no joke. It is a serious condition that must be addressed and treated as early as possible.
