The BBC News webpage features an article about Hannah Ellis, an emetophobia sufferer. Hannah has suffered for many years. The article mentions various treatments but neglects to mention the most effective one by a long way. The Thrive Programme (Cure your emetophobia and Thrive)
From the article: “Nobody likes being sick. But Hannah Ellis says her fear of vomiting is so intense that “chicken scares me” and she panics if friends or family fall ill. The 19-year-old from Sheffield has emetophobia, a condition affecting thousands people in the UK.
My flatmates are probably wondering why I’m eating pasta and tomato sauce for the fourth evening in a row.
It’s not because I’m skint, the truth is that chicken or the thought of reheating food is terrifying.
My phobia of vomiting – even the word churns my stomach – dictates nearly every aspect of my life.
‘I feel guilty’”
