|Emetophobia / fear of being sick / fear of others being sick / fear of vomit|
What causes Emetophobia?
The incident that was experienced when young was interpreted incorrectly at the time and the subconscious is causing the person to still act like that frightened two year old, even though she is now an adult. When 'stuff' happens to us when young, we are relatively short on intelligence and life experience - this deficiency causes us to interpret situations to the best of our ability with the limited data available. Nine times out of ten, this interpretation is incorrect but because of the conscious mind's difficulty in accessing the subconscious, it can't work out why we react to certain situations in an irrational way.
The actual phobia manifests itself in different ways. Some sufferers experience it almost all the time, others just in response to direct stimuli. Some sufferers spend a number of years 'emetophobia free' and then a particular incident triggers the subconscious to remember the childhood event in question and then the fear of sickness starts / restarts.
