Dd starting vomiting in the night, she has been brilliant and made it to the loo, she's now asleep. I am a mess, petrified that I will catch it, I have bleached and cleaned the downstairs bathroom, have bathed dd and wiped down everything she has touched but I think I may already have it. My stomach hurts and keeps making noises, I'm not sure if it's just my mind playing tricks on me or if I have the bug. Dd2 is staying in her room all day ( she shares the phobia ), dd1 refusing to go to bed and has set up camp on the sofa where I have surrounded her with old towels. I know when she wakes up I will have to attempt to get fluids into her but I know she will probably be sick if she has a drink.

Trying to stay calm and failing miserably.

So sorry I did not see this at the time. I am a fellow emetophobe and fully sympathise. It sounds like you did very well looking after your daughter. I really struggle when my son is ill, (understatement!). I really hope that you were o.k and understand the terrible anxiety. Also hope you are all right now as I appreciate how an episode like this can set you back for some time. Again, so sorry that you went unanswered in your hour of need.
