OCD and Emetophobia
The fear of vomiting, or emetophobia, affects people of all ages. It is often seen in childhood and if left untreated, can become debilitating. It is also known to develop during adulthood, perhaps after an associated experience such as a severe stomach illness or episode of vomiting. The consequences of vomit phobia can be extreme, leading to such things as school refusal, social isolation, and job loss. Emetophobia can also take away any joy in life, hindering travel and leisure activities, romantic relationships, and even pregnancy (afraid of morning sickness). To be clear, emetophobia is not just being afraid of throwi...

Instead, social anxiety becomes a sort of silent suffering that is endured for years, coloring the way we think, interact, and feel when around other people. Yet, the idea that social anxiety is a disease that needs to be cured is just one of the many myths that often keeps us from getting help. In his new book, Social Courage: Coping and Thriving...
