Today my sister got sick in front of me and I had a panick attack. It was so bad, I was shaking, balling my eyes out, felt like I was going to die ... Things got better but I have mental images that keeps coming back and I don't know what to do about them ... how do you cope with that ?

Now I don't really want to be close to her or touch her for the moment ... and also I'm always afraid that she might get sick again ...

This is hard to deal with please help :low::low::low:

I'm a total germaphobe myself. What is she sick with? Better to keep your distance from her then. 🤗

My reply is probably very late but I completely understand where you worry comes from. I have 3 brothers, two younger and I avoid them whenever they bring a sickness bug home. This is hard as I’m a carer for one of them and when children are poorly they want hugs and comfort but I just can’t do it because I am afraid of catching it. I have been living with emetophobia for 7 years are struggle on daily basis, wish I could help you because it horrific and I often wonder why me? Also wonder what other people that don’t have it feel daily. I suppose all I can say is you’re not alone, I’m aware that won’t be massive help but there’s many of us out there. If you ever need someone to vent to about it I’m here. Usually awake late in the night as my emetophobia is worse at night. Flick a message and I don’t mind chatting to you, I hope you’re ok <3
