I do understand what u are talking about
with " catching bugs " and going out or having ppl around you sick
I am basically w/o an immune system and I catch all there is too catch ......
My D SIL brings my nephew here with a cold a couple of mths ago ...runny nose coughing you name it ...
I got pnuemonia and was very very sick and lost alot of weight as I would not eat due to not wantig to vomit
I dont have a phobia bout Vomitting BUT I do not like it and I try avoiding it at all costs
I would suggesst instead of looking for therapists or docs that know nothing about
this anyways go in the other direction
Go to an Eating Disorder specialists they deal with isues of bulimia anorexia ect BUT also they I am SURE would have some insight into this particuliar phobia........I know you are not afraid to eat BUT they may be able to bleeding well shed more light on the phobia you have ya know
Just a thought
Out there......... but still it could be worth checking out IMHO..........
I am sooo sorry hun you are going thru this and plz do not be a stranger keeep posting I have been wonderig how you are doing............
Let me / us know how you make out if you go the route I suggessted........
