Anxiety over vomit.

Anxiety over vomit.

I have major fear/anxiety over vomit what can I do to overcome it. I have 2 children and am constantly worried they will be sick around me. Everytime we travel in the car I worry they are going to be sick. I need to overcome this fear. I’ve had it since I can remember and I’m now in my 40’s. It’s so bad it’s impacting my life badly. When my kids are sick I literally have panic attacks and won’t go near them.

Medical sick bags, with a hoop at the top so they don't miss and can lock closed after. Or when I had them I used formula tins, can put the lid on straight after. I found that helps. If theres one thing my kids know is to catch it.

There's a name for this, emetophobia. It's very real and can be debilitating!
It's often an extension of generalised anxiety, too.

I think since it's having such a big impact in your life, it's probably time to see your doctor. This can be managed!

Good luck xx
