I suffer from a phobia of being sick I have suffered from this illness for many years. I have tried most anxiety medication and take anti-sickness tablets regularly because I make myself feel so sick. I have seen doctors, had counselling and also tried cbt (cognitive behavioural therapy). They don't seem to help this condition at all
I can't work because of this illness it takes over my life, I dont socialise or go to party's/nightclubs, I do regularly go out for meals but avoid foods which I think could make me ill/sick. I can't stay out anywhere apart from my home. Im worse on a night time I struggle to sleep and stay awake many hours due to this condition. I feel like I dont have anybody that knows exactly what I'm going through. I avoid going near anybody that has been sick or feels sick, I avoid spending time with my family as I'm so scared if they have an illness and are sick that I dont want to catch it. I dont know what else to do. This is such an awful illness to live with I think negative all the time as I have not had anything positive come out of feeling this way.
I really hope there is somebody out there suffering the same phobia as me, if so please please message me and reply to this!
