For some strange reason I have a phobia for crocodiles / alligators, if I see one it makes me shudder and feel sick.

Vomiting. But after vomiting (a long while since the last time) I realised actually it is a relief from the nausea. But I carry a plastic bag and pepto bismol with me just in case.

I have serious phobia of being around people, no eye contact, wont let no one walk behind me, avoid all and every contact with people at every opportunity.

I know the answer lies within me, but hell I don't like being near people.

But how would we know we were behind you?
it would not be possible TC, I don't go out period.

only mums and hospital, not even to empty my own shit in the bin.

I was cracking a joke when I said just don't walk behind me.:unsure: sorry am weird like that

I know I need to sort myself out and hopefully I can mix with the normal people soon

I'm scared of big spiders, and cockroaches and big moths.

Good morning!

Currently have a fear of vomiting or falling ill, in public mostly. About 5 years ago I became very ill and was hospitalized with a stomach virus. While waiting to be admitted I ended up throwing up infront of a few people. I hadn't vomited in years at that point and the feeling was so horrible for me. Since then I have had emetophobia and some agoraphobia although I am not house bound whatsoever. I carry tums with me because any funny or different feeling I have in my stomach or body, I attribute to the stomach virus I 'may' have. I have vomited since the initial incident and it was horrible but I got through it! Thankfully i was at my home.

Have had GAD since high school and been on a few different medications to control my anxieties.

Would love to hear your thoughts! This is a daily struggle for me. I appreciate any feedback. Thanks for reading!

I hate fingernails and the skin under they are painful to me. I want them off my body, they are so gross and no purpose

Hey I know you posted a couple of years ago so I'm not holding out for a response, but wondered if you ever got over this and how? I have the same and it's got out of hand lately. Would be nice to chat to someone who understands. Thanks!
