 hi, Im usually really private about this  & im unsure how many will know what it is or all about it. some get judgemental..  but I figure  a few might have it too or some might know  someone who does & I'd like to help  people undertsand what it is & what its like.. 

 ask away.

 oh as if it wasn't enough.. I have emetophobia too =/ LOL


**EDIT>> I am SO surpirsed & thankful for  ALL of the very kind & compassionate replies so many replies and not ONE  bash. I was VERY anxious to post this but  felt it might help others come forward ( which many did) and help others understand which they are..

 I didn't expect this many replies & right now I have 2 active boys running my house..  but I will finish replying to ever  reply bc they do mean so much to me. this is a very  personal topic  for me & I appreciate  all the replies.. I will  write back all of you as well as the pvt msgs i have gotten from many who sadly  have this too but dont want to post in here understandably  < spelled that wrong I think =?

 anyway, thanks & will be on tonight.

No judgment here! I have this too, without the emetophobia. Been dealing with the panic attacks since high school.

A lot of people are claustrophobic, that's what the agoraphobic basically is right? But I never knew someone could be emetophobic, but I guess anyone can be afraid of anything

no, claustrphobic is  different. its a phobia or irrational fear in small places .   they get it  in elevators, or tight places  some cant even go into tanning beds.  yes, emetophoboia is actually more common than you think &  there is a phobia  for anything yes lol

I assume this is abotu the emtophobia? when they throw up?

 I panic,   I get VERY anxious if dh is there he handles most of it /c he knows & he doenst mind. if im alone I have to handle it its hard but my kids are young so  they   need  me to help & clean.. thankfully its not often
