Yeah me. I just hate the thought of anyone being sick and when I see/hear anyone vomiting and I feel unwell and think am going to vomit myself. The weird thing is though that I hardly even ever vomit ( only done it twice in 10 years) but I feel like am going to be sick nearly every week. I suppose it is all just in the mind.

Yeah that's similar to me, I hardly ever vomit. I think maybe it's because we rarely vomit, that when we do we really hate it?

I used to have this. I used to worry and panic about being sick every single day.

However, it doesn't bother me now (no more than the average person anyway). I threw up loads throughout uni - sometimes from alcohol, but also from being ill. It desensitised me to it. A woman threw up right in front of me last week and it didn't phase me at all.

I'm so glad it's gone. Emetophobia is awful. I think the worst thing is that you can't escape being sick. If you're scared of a spider or something, you can get away from it, but you can't do that if you feel nauseous.

Yep. Even if I feel slightly nauseous I get quite paranoid and nervous and start shaking and it just makes it worse. Tonight was quite bad for that (alcohol!), I think the problems lies in that I have quite bad acid reflux so even if I haven't got very drunk I could still feel pretty sick from it..

Not really. Though I'd hate the thought of vomiting in front of others.
Knowing me, I'd faint from the embarrassment and land in the puke.
