    This might sound really stupid but I have a massive phobia of vomit.

    And right now the girl next door to me has been vomiting for about an hour and I'm freaking out. I'm shaking and having palpitations and wanting to cry. I really don't know what to do, I've got my iPod on full blast to drown out the noise (and I dread when each song ends because I can hear her again) but I know (as it's happened before with my brother) that I won't sleep tonight because of this and I have an exam tomorrow.

    I really need help on how to get over this phobia, it always strikes at the worst times and I feel so stupid. How do I get over this?!
    Tell her to stfu and then once she kicks your ass, come back and post so we can laugh.

    Calm down. What you said displayed misunderstanding. As I'm sure you know, a phobia is not rational at all, and cannot be dispersed by simply pointing out that they have no reason to feel that way.

    I wasn't trying to be rude, I was just concerned about the extent of your understanding. Don't take it personally and no need to swear.
    i'm perfectly calm. don't be so patronising.

    Apologies, not intentional. I'm just not used to calm people putting random swear words in responses to criticism.

    Go kill her that is of course if you dont have a thing for blood aswell. That should stop the sounds and result in a good nights sleep.

    I can't believe how insensitive some people are on here. Troll threads, sure be my guest and troll away. But she's asking for advice and people sneer at her?

    OP for the time being get out of there, go out and get some fresh air or visit a friend or something. Then for starters check and see if your uni has a counsellor onsite. It might be worth paying them a visit...

    I have the exact same phobia.
    If I even hear a noise in my house like someone is throwing up, I go out or drown out the noise.
    Also, if I think I'm going to be sick, I freak out.

    I know it might not work for everyone, but I always find that if I skirt around something or try to avoid it it can make me feel sick (imagine I don't know a decapitated person) but if I just confront it head on the shock sort of goes away and you just get on with things.
    Maybe you need to confront it? Get past that OMG /I want to be sick/ etc stage

    What has smoking got to do with a vomiting phobia?
