    Hi all, little about me my names loren Im 25 and a single mum, I suffer with emetaphobia and have since I was around 6 years of age, it's always been a pain to suffer with but since having my son it's so so extreme, my problem lies with other people being sick not myself, I'm so down with it the anxiety, the phobia, the fear, the depression everything and I just want to give up that's the only way these feeling are going to disappear! I'm in the the middle of CBT and in all honesty it's made me 10000 and more times worse but I don't want to give up on that, at the moment my son has just started nursery and after only 4 days of being in ther he's picked up a diareah bug and my only thoughts are what if it goes further and is accompanied with sick, I can't handle these feelings I need to run away!! The only thing stopping me ending everything is my son. I would love someone who is in the same shoes as me to speak to if possible I can't handle this I'm crying constantly I'm inside myself I can't enjoy life, my life is ruled by these horendus feelings and I just want it all to stop, I would love ther to be a rehab type of place people can go to get through anxiety depressions phobias but I can't seem to find anything. Thanks in advance xxx

    My family think my phobia is
    Pathetic and silly and if n when James is ill and I'm alone it's "good practice" to get over it, it's not atall being thrown in to
    A situation like that with a fear of it this extreme!! That upsets me so much more too, I'm a completely normal good mum, not perfect but who is, but in the illness part of things I'm useless. Thank you and hi xxx
