Hollis, emetophobia is something like the 5th or 7th most common phobia. It is in the top 10. And yeah I know, I have a totally neutral reaction towards other bodily substances, including the runs (sorry gross I know).. if my kids have bloody noses or the runs I deal with it just fine. Just puke I cannot be around. And I do my best to never do it but if it must happen which again thankfully is rare.. somehow I handle it... still shaken up.. but when it comes to others being sick, I simply cannot do it. Weird thing is my kids were once babies that spat up and I handled it not great but ok considering.. but if I am around a baby now, I don't want to be around it after it eats... makes sense huh?
