My daughter has a terror of vomiting

Sometimes she wakes up in the night panicking that she is going to get sick

My nine-year-old daughter has always had a fear of vomit. She was triggered recently by a girl vomiting in her class. The next morning she wanted me to bring her brother to school first. She felt sick and was terrified she was going to vomit. She had what looked similar to a panic attack. She was physically shaking. Nothing could distract her.

Most nights before bed she feels sick, looks at the mirror and sticks her tongue out and asks, “Is my tongue white? Am I pale?” She sometimes feels sick during the day. Recently, I got a call from the principal to say she was sick and was very pale. I explained to the principal that she sometimes worries that she is going to vomit. I got on the phone to her and asked, “Is this the worry bug back again?” I explained that I had a meeting but will have my phone on, and if she still feels sick to return to the principal’s office. She returned to the class and was fine.

“Education alone will not close attainment gap.” The Thrive Programme will!
