no you are not a bad wife!!

So I forgot to tell you guys what happened here back in Sept. My dd12 (the emetophob) is at her CCD class and I leave her to take her sister about a 1/2 hour away. My friend was picking up dd12 with her daughter and bringing dd back to her house for the afternoon. DH is at a football game..
So I am almost the dog show (where I was going with her sister) when i get a panicked call from dd12. Turns out her friend got sick...threw up in the car with my dd sitting next to her. My friend pulled the car to the side of the road and poor dd ran out of the car and hid behind a tree to call me and tell me to come pick her up!! I am a 1/2 hour away..I have to convince her to get back into the car with her friend (this time she is sitting up front) and she had to go home with her friend..thank goodness it was a nice day and I told her just stay outside until i can come for her. My friend was wonderful...she knows just how bad my dd's fear is and understood her reaction...but had to deal with my dd's fear and her dd's sickness!!

All is OK...until another friend throws up LOL...but she is doing well right now!!

Thank god I'm not alone, but I need to know...

Hello, my name is Caitlin and I'm 17 and a senior in high school. I really need your help! This is a bit long so bear with me!

I have been in Colorguard for two season, and this year was my third. (Colorguard is part of marching band and we spin flags and weapons at half time for football games) during a performance, I dry heaved half way through first movement, I tried to push through it but it got worse and worse. I went to the ambulance and we thought I had overheated (temp of 100.9 and our uniform was a windbreaker that night). Or I assumed I had a bug and it decided to act up. I had a competition the next day and it happened again sooner. Mind you the first time I ran off the field but this time I hide behind the wall barriers out of sight ) in reaction to my dry heaving I began shaking and crying because I've always been scared of throwing up, but the fear was rational. After the second time we began the think it was anxiety.
I had alot going on, I just moved out of my dads house because I was unhappy, my dad had pushed me away, I enrolled in two AP classes never taken an AP before, senior year and college to worry about. I've always had incredibly low self esteem and low self worth and always been extremely hard on myself and my father always pushed me and never seemed proud. Seemed like external anxiety was effecting my Colorguard
It began to effect my everyday life. Cut the progression, as of now I have missed two weeks of school. I can't leave the house not even to hang out with friends and do things I enjoy. It's a vicious cycle, my anxiety causes nausea and that causes me to panic about throwing up. I have always been scared of throwing up, I would feel uncomfortable in packed room or some place without an escape and I would always scheme plans to what id do if I needed to leave. Feeling like I'm gonna get sick and getting sick is the end of the world in my mind.
I have been taking pepto bismol and anti-nausea meds and natural remedies to stay calm but I hate going to bed which is when I have my worst attacks of trying not to throw up. I just don't see it getting better if its all in my head, feeling nausea and throwing up is always a possibility because its a human function, and I will always be scared of it.
Is there any escape!? Even through professionals and prescribed medication?

kacaju - OMG your poor DD!!!! That is AWFUL to have someone get sick that close to you!!!!

Just returned from a WDW girls trip & my biggest emet fear happened - DS12 got sick & threw up while I was away! He texted me in WDW to tell me & I was all freaking out. I kept texting hom to wash his hands, spray Lysol, put towels on his bed, take a bowl to bed with you, etc. etc. He didn't make a mess, thank God, or DH would never let me leave again!

coolcait it sounds like you're having a rough time. We all know about OCD & panic here on the thread so feel free to talk to us. It sounds like you might need to seek some medical help if it's preventing you from going to school & doing the things you normally do. Hugs to you!

Yeah, I'm seeing a psychiatrist this Friday. I certainly hope it helps, but I'm also super scared to go to the appointment itself. I've always been terrified of doctors, but I'm not even scared of that anymore!! I'm scared of how I'll feel, and if ill feel nauseous and worried if I'll be able to pull through or if something bad will end up happening.. Any tips to keep calm and not feel sick? I'm so nervous I'll feel uncontrollably ill . I haven't left my house in a while.. I end up getting super anxious and feel nauseous which makes me begin to panic and almost throw up and I have to stop talking to people sometimes...

((HUGS, HUGS and more HUGS)) Please let us know how your appt goes..AND please remember, that sometimes it may take time to find the right Dr. to help you understand what you are going through. My dd19 has tricitilliamania (she pulls her hair out) and it took a while before we found the right theraptist for her. With her sister it was so much easier because we already had the right therapist. You WILL get through this, honestly you will. We are all here and understand what you are going through

I've talked about Trich on a few threads, couldn't remember if it was here or not. Mine is with my eyelashes only. I've done therapy, I've done hypno-therapy and meds. Nothing seems to work but it has subsided greatly over time.

I'm just a hot mess! OCD runs in my family. My mom suffers from it, I'm told her mother did too. DS14 has Tourettes which is anxiety-induced. Thankfully its very mild & he needs no OT or meds for it. We just let it run its course.

OMG DS is 15 not 14. See now I have Altzheimers too!

I have started a new program. So far, so good. It's called Anxiety Revolution-
http://anxietyrevolution.com/foundation

It's completely free and all online, and you learn a good amount about anxiety and what causes it... and how to make it better. I have gotten through video #2- ready for video #3, but it hasn't been sent to me yet (they're sent intermittantly). There are a lot of emet's over there that have been getting some relief. I'm working with DH on his anxiety too. Thus far, we have had a MUCH happier couple of weeks- meditation, essential oils, rescue remedy, a supportive diet... all good things.

Hugs to you all!

Cool- yes, it sounds to me that it's totally anxiety induced. I had a friend in college that would do the same exact thing (she would get sick every morning before class). I asked her how she was doing about a year or so ago (when the SAME thing happened to me out of panic) and she said after talking to a counselor she is doing so much better. So, I'm sure the doctor will help you! It helps me to talk it out to people I trust (even though it makes me to actually FACE my anxiety), and once I start looking at it from the outside in, it totally changes my perspective. I love "Anxiety Slayer"- they have a podcast on iTunes, and Shann and Ananga are AWESOME. They give lots of tips regarding anxiety, relaxation, and how to support yourself. Once you figure out how to support yourself, your whole world changes. BTW, I'm a music teacher (private instruction), so I totally understand the color guard thing. I was in marching band- I get you chica! Anxiety was SKY HIGH from before elementary school THROUGH college (omg ) and believe it or not, recognizing that there is a problem and admitting it to yourself and someone else (anyone else) is the first step to recovery. So, great job for coming here for support! I used to live on antacids and tums... don't do that- that'll cause more damage in the long run. Try to find other things that support you- hot herbal tea, cool water, foods that are unprocessed and easy to digest (soups, cooked veggies, eggs, oatmeal, etc.). Good luck- keep us posted!!!!

The worse thing just happened....

Last night I felt really sick to my stomach, but not like I usually do. This felt like REALLY being sick (usually the nausea is in my throat)

About two hours ago it came back and I swear I was gonna vomit and I went to stand by the toilet and I got really dizzy and I heard a ringing in my ears and my hands began to tingle and I had to collapse to the ground... ***? Is my phobia getting worse. I truly felt like I was going to throw up because I actually felt SICK.,, I'm so scared. I don't want to go through another night with this... And I am NOT leaving my house for the appointment Friday... There's no way, not if actually vomiting is a real possibility... Help )':

P.S. a bug is going around here. I have heard of 2 of my friends getting sick

Ugh.....I'm sorry you are going through this and believe me when I say I know what it's like. I am the person who started this whole thread. Lived with this my whole life and I am now 40. The only advice I can give you right now is to NEVER put your hands in your mouth EVER! I would go to your appointment still, you really need this! Trust me chances are you will NOT get sick. At least go so you can get a prescription for Phenergan. It's a GREAT anti vomiting pill that I rely on heavily. Don't leave home without it. The only negative is it wil make you very sleepy but it's a great way to deeal knowing you have a "back-up". I only take it when I am feeling VERY sick. I think just knowing i have it available help me from letting the anxiety escalate. Good luck and

Does it ever end? I read all these post and people say they have had it for years... I want this to end NOW ):
I don't even leave the house so idk how I'd get it but I won't put my hands (or anything!) in my mouth.
Does what just happen sound like apart of my panic and anxiety to emetophobia? Or could I actually have ate something bad? (We had fish last night and the batter we use on it says to refrigerate after opening and we didn't...)
I just haven't eaten much today.. I don't like eat anymore I always feel sick afterwards ):
Right now, after I've calmed down I feel like I could handle the appointment, but after an "episode" I can't bear even the thought of living.
We first diagnose this as anxiety and I've come to realize its definitely the fear of vomiting. I have always been anxious about it but it was rational. My last and earliest memory of vomiting was me standing by the toilet with my mom and shaking so badly she asked if I was cold and I said that I was scared.. ):
I'm hoping the psychiatrist realizes its emetophobia that has turned into some pretty bad social anxiety we think. I'm just so scared and want this to end ),: ::hugs::

Oh honey, I've been there when I was in middle school. I didn't go to school for 2 years because I was bullied. And I was terrified of throwing up so I wouldn't eat, slept sitting up with a puke bucket, and lived on mylanta. They tried to diagnose me as anorexic, but my mom said no, I was afraid of getting sick, not making myself get sick. Medicine and therapy got me through it. The medicine took a few weeks to build up and start working, but I noticed myself eating more and more. I got back to school and graduated on time. Now I no longer think I'm dying when I feel nauseous and it doesn't control my life. I can help others when they are sick and not worry that I will get sick. It can get better, I promise. Get professional help and try medications and relaxation techniques till you find the combo that works for you!

Force yourself to go to your appointment tomorrow. If your anxiety gets bad while you ate there, all the better. Then the dr can SEE what is going on. And people throw up in public all the time. You won't die, even though it feels like you will. You need help before you get to the point that you won't eat. My body stated shutting down and I would have died if I didn't get help.

I literally worry myself sick though! It's not like I get nauseous and panic... I just am scared by it In general! I just really hope the doctor understands and can put me on medication that'll help for my case.. I just hate leaving the house and talking to people.. I've always had issues of feeling nauseous if I talked to long, but it never was irrational! I'm hoping I feel okay on Friday when I see her and can make it through ): thanks so much for the understanding everyone.
