  1. Finally another emetophobia sufferer. I have panic attacks when I have the stomach bug that require trips to the ER for anti-nausea meds. I just have a full-blown meltdown and would legitimately rather die than suffer the stomach bug for 24 hours. But I don’t struggle with the eating because I don’t associate that with vomiting. It’s stomach bugs and anything else that can induce potential vomiting (I avoid eating too much, and I don’t handle upset stomachs well at all because of the potential to vomit). I also have tocophobia (fear of being pregnant) because of my fear of vomiting–among other reasons. I’ve got bipolar disorder as well and when I’m in a depressive episode, comorbid anxiety. But I’m living just fine right now.

    1. It is great to know there are others out there who are dealing with the same thing! I’m sorry you are also dealing with this and other mental health issues – but I’m glad you are doing fine and just know you aren’t alone :)

      1. I struggle with emetophobia as well!!!!! Wow!!!! My freshman year of college I went to a mental health fair and the psychologist said I showed all the hallmark signs of Generalized Anxiety Disorder. Lol I know this is so random and weird because I don’t know you, but I like you already. I love to write and I also graduated undergrad (back in 2014) with a double major in Psych and Socy. It’s been a dream of mine to publish a book. I love writing poetry and fiction…. you inspire me :)

        1. Thank you SO much! your comment really made me day (and I was having a pretty bad day, to be honest!) I’m sorry you also struggle with emetophobia & GAD – both can be a huge pain in the butt. I’m so glad we’ve connected though! :)

  2. Hey! I just stumbled upon your blog and I love it! I’m also a Christian girl suffering from GAD and it’s great to know there are other people out there who are open to talking about it. I just did a post on our house blog about it, if you wanna have a gander? All the best, and keep fighting the good fight :)

  3. I suffer from GAD too! Ain’t that funny? It’s soo much more common that we think! I’m glad you found my blog so I can follow your back and hear from someone going through similar situations to myself. If you ever want to chat to a likeminded anxiety sufferer, share coping strategies, whatever – you know where I am! :D xx

  4. Okay, so I’m glad I found your blog for several different reasons.
    1. Video games
    2. Reading
    3. Pretty much the same undergrad degree
    4. We were both recently married in May of 2015.
    Congrats, you may have became my favorite blogger.

    1. Awww, thank you!! I love your blog too, by the way. It’s always great reading about other newlyweds’ experiences, especially because I hardly have any newlywed friends right now, and I feel like I’m in such a different stage of life from most of my friends!

  5. Hi Lauren, thanks for the follow! I’m happy to meet you and your life story resonates with me in more ways than one 😊 especially about the dog! I’m obsessed with mine too lol! Looking forward to keeping in touch. Keep writing and dreaming and encouraging others along the way! God bless you 🙏🏻

    1. Hi Leila! So glad to meet another dog lover online, ha! It’s sometimes hard to find others who understand my…dog obsession. Thank you so much for your comment! I look forward to following along on your blog!
