Anxiety....Is this normal? - May 31st 2012, 11:25 PM


Well, first off, I do take anxiety pills, because I get anxious REALLY EASILY. But I don't understand why I'm scared of minor things. One stands out in particular, though: I have the absolute WORST fear of throwing up. I get soo scared that I'll be sick in public! And I don't even know why this happens! Every time I get like, a period cramp, or a lower bowel cramp, I automatically think I'm going to throw up. I'll even start to get sweaty, clammy and pale. Why does this happen? I'm so sick and tired of being so afraid of throwing up. Can anyone give me some advice?

Thank you and God Bless,
<3, Nikki

Do you know why the thought makes you anxious? Like, everyone gets sick at some point, but was there a situation or time where it made worrying about it worse for you? Also, try to remember that cramps aren't going to make you throw up or anything. You can usually tell the difference between cramps or stomach pain & being sick to the point where you might puke. Just try to remember that difference when you start to worry. Also take deep breaths.

A lot of people have the vomiting fear. My sister, best friend, and I sort of have it. I think for them, its not exactly because a event happened where they threw up and got really embaressed, but because it feels really unpleasant to do so. Its also kind of scary if you NEVER throw up I guess. It doesn't scare me in that way, it scares me more to be in public and feel sick thinking im gonna throw up. But again, i've never had a moment where that happened. I just know it would be really nasty and embaressing. I HAVE felt that sick in public before but thankfully, I was able to deal with it till I got home. Also something I do even though it may sound strange, is I hold one of my wrists when I feel nausiated. There's a pressure point on our wrists that stops us from throwing up. Sometimes when you go on cruises they give you a bracelet to stop you from getting seasick. Its the same type of thing. It actually works=)
