Emetophobe. Panicking now, possibly a bug.

I felt sick all day and going to bed took a couple of rennie's.
Woke up about 2am with a sore tummy and needing to go. Now had to run to the loo 4 times. I also feel extremely nauseous. I'm in full panic mode. I've been phobic all my life and now I'm worried I will start vomiting. I don't know what to do. It's been years since I've been ill. I'm very strict with hand washing etc so I have no idea where I could have picked it up. My DH and two DDs are fine!

Fellow emetophone here. Big (at a distance) hugs - hope you are over the worst by now. Deep breaths, this too will pass.

Fellow emetophobe here, you will almost certainly not be sick, part of the phobia allows us to develop a really strong resistance to the urge and although you may feel terrible and have bad diarreah it will pass. I would keep away from the rest of the family though.

Deep breaths, distractions on your phone and it will pass.
