ive gone to pieces....... the only support i have is a partner of 10years and he is refusing to come as is working a sleepover at a residential unit with mental health clients<not waking night> my son is sittin gon the stairs surrounded by a pool of vomit ive never been able to cope with sick and cannot even manage to be around anyone being/been sick what the hell am i going to do some body <anybody> talk me through this bloody mess
i am semi detached.neighbour is very new and works friday nights my ds is 7 he came down and said tummy felt funny....i told him to go upstairs to the toilet and he threw up on hall floor.i said are you ok to make it to loo now and he then wandered up the stairsand proceeded to throw up all down them,all over the school coats and bags too
i just want to die the fear is that bad
im angry with myself ive just left him there<he says feels better now though>
im been having cbt since january and have made some progress but this is overwhelming
so sorry you are going through this. You WILL be ok. Your ds WILL be ok.
not sure I am of much use except for to offer my utmost sympathy and empathic feelings.
think if it were me I'd start with a load of kitchen roll and plastic bags, then move on to some sort of wet cloths and cleaning solution (all straight into the plastic bags and into the bin) followed by bleaching whatever is bleach able. deep breaths. You are going to get through this <tries to convince self>
<sobs> thanks everyone my therapist and i had planned as a next step to thrown sawdust down when they were ill to absorb it and drown the smell<which i cant handle> i did that before thried to reach dp<well not so dear now>
it the only area of my house with damn carpet will go and try and sort it be back shortly
<takes deeep breath and tries to swallow panic and bile rising>
I use anything dry to sop up the liquid, clumping cat litter is great , but of course, you may not have any. If you have anything really strongly scented like vics under your nose or olbas oil ( put on a scarf over your mouth) it masks the smell which really helps.
Do you have tea tree (or other aromatherapy scents but tea tree is antiseptic) you could use in the room or sprinkle on whatever cloths you are using? It might help with the smell and also the idea of cleanliness.
Or spray liberally with antiseptic spray/air freshner/carpet cleaner stuffs.
I'd cover it in layers of kitchen roll and lift and dump in a bag quickly so you dont have to look.
A scarf over your nose and mouth and sunglasses work for me. I have a dreadful fear of it too, the sunglasses just remove you a bit from it. Keep the radio on in the background to take your mind off it.
