I have a 13 year old daughter who is having severe anxiety... Is afraid of getting sick(vomiting) ... Does great in school but afraid to get sick there so goes to nurse a lot. Just started seeing a therapist ... Wondering if anyone else has dealt with this... Thanks

Hi my 13 yr isn't able to eat until she gets home from school I'm hoping this can be resolved through therapy. It's difficult as a parent to watch your child suffer

Hi there... I was in the same position as your daughter- also at 13 it started. I think its awesome that the right people are aware and that she is getting therapy. I told no-one and just didn't eat before school or at lunch so that I wouldn't vomit. Never told anyone about it until past few years when I read about emetophobia and discovered there are others with it too. Just no-one talks about it! All the best to you both :)
