Living with Emetophobia: Coping with Extreme Fear of Vomiting

Emetophobia, the extreme fear of vomiting, can affect just about every aspect of sufferer’s life, from everyday considerations (‘what food will be “safe” for me to eat?’) to matters that involve making huge, potentially devastating decisions (‘I can’t have this baby, I can’t face morning sickness’). Nicolette Heaton-Harris has first-hand experience of the phobia and its effects. She suggests strategies for coping with the high levels of anxiety that are intrinsic to the phobia, as well as pre-empting and avoiding anxiety attacks. The experiences of fellow sufferers of all ages, male and female, are shared throughout the book and a list of useful organisations providing further information and support services is also included. “Living with Emetophobia” is a must-have for anyone suffering from emetophobia, anyone living with an emetophobic as well as professionals treating or supporting people with emetophobia.

    A great book to explain what this phobia is like to live with! I also suffer with emetophobia and think this book will really help people who have emet because like me it makes you realise that you are not alone with this awful phobia. I know there is no miracle cure explained in the book, something we would all like, but there is no cure (as yet, but we keep hoping) Like the title says “Living with emetophobia” it explains what it is like to live every day with it and it also has stories from other people who live with this horrid phobia.I for…

    Not what i expected! I am 22 years old and have suffered with emetophobia as long as i can remember. When i was younger i felt like i had control of my phobia but now i feel it is controlling me.I have been to see my doctor several times and been diagnosed as having Irritable Bowel Syndrom and an OCD but none of them seem to understand that all of my problems relate back to this extreme fear and so i am no closer to finding a way of coping.I saw this book on an emetophobia support website…
