Emetophobia is a phobia where the sufferer has a tremendous and overwhelming fear of being sick, being sick in public or watching someone else be sick or vomit. Although nobody likes to vomit, or to see others vomiting, those individuals with emetophobia have an extreme preoccupation with vomiting that can severely compromise everyday life. They feel symptoms akin to panic attacks. People that suffer from the fear of being sick are known as Emetophobics or Emetophobes.
Emetophobes tend to be on the lookout for anybody that is even slightly ill in case they come into contact with germs and illness, trying to make sure that there is no way that they can be sick. They can worry about what they eat. Emetophobia can often rule the person's life, dominating their thoughts each and every day. It can and often does turn into a major obsession.
It is interesting that emetophobes are rarely sick themselves. Some report not having been sick since childhood.
