Emetophobia: the fear of vomiting and being sick

Sign up for Owning It: Real Time HERE

My son was very ill last week so I had to cancel four recordings (sob) so alas it is another solo episode but given the theme of my week I've decided it's time to talk about emetophobia - or a lighter version of that which I think I experience - which is the fear of vomiting. Here I discuss the characteristics of emetophobia, how I handle looking after my son when he's unwell and how I coped through my own recent experience of feeling that I would, any minute, throw up. I hope this episode is of some reassurance or comfort or familiarity that you are not alone - nor are you mad - for having the fear.
