Derived from the ancient Greek word "etmos", emetophobia is best recognized with the fear of vomiting, and agonizes millions of people each and everyday.
Just what is the big deal with emetophobia? Well basically, it makes people's lives harder to deal with, thus making them not being able to do certain activities or have certain careers. For example, you sometimes have to be cautious about which comedy movies you watch, if in case there is a funny puking skit. Or perhaps your dream to become a nurse of some sort, but are hindered at the thought of dealing with sick people?
But do not lose hope! There is a solution!
And no I am not speaking of doing that hypno analysis stuff, I am talking about stuff that you really understand. This method will truly save you from this constant fear and you will be able to live a normal life, carefree to not think about how disgusting and fearful vomiting is.
But if you are interested in getting rid of emetophobia, then you first must ask yourself why you are feeling that way. Perhaps you were born to think that it is full of disease, or maybe it was taught to you when you were young. Basically, you gotta know what part of emetophobia scares you. Is it the germs within the vomit? Is it that it may make you have to puke? Or is it simply the act of vomiting which upsets you so greatly?
Something that you may want to give a shot is placing yourself in situations which make you want to throw up. This can helpful in the way that it adjusts and prepares your body and mind to not think about vomiting, and even when it happens, then it truly would not be such a terrible thing.
