    Heylo lovelies :D

    I have an eating disorder && I'm severely emetophobic. Lately, I've been feeling really ill, really sick

    And even though I hate being sick or feeling it, is it weird that in a way I like it coz I don't have to force myself to eat?
    Is it weird to use it as an excuse so people don't make me eat?

    <3

    I don't think that's weird at all. Maybe the phobia is a direct result of the disorder? I could see where one would lend itself to the other.

    Yeah. I've had an ED since I was 9 and it came about because I had really bad bout of tonsilitis in which I threw up loads so stopped eating && then I noticed I was losing weight and I liked it
    So I think you're right lol

  6. Hey,

    I suffered from an ED as a result of emetophobia and I really cherished any time when I wasn't forced to eat, and when I had to eat in front of my family I came up with every excuse I could. I went about 2 or 3 months barely eating. But the phobia has faded, now I only react when someone around me is sick. Not perfect, but at least it can get better.
