... laceymay-- I too have emetophobia and I wonder if having that starts a downward cycle when confronted with something that makes you worried or anxious because when that happens you feel like you're going to throw up.....which makes you more anxious....which (as just said), sends you on a downward spiral.

... That's actually true! I have read a lot about emetophobia and some emetophobes can go 20+ years without throwing up.
