Hi everyone, This is really embarrasing but I need to post and get some opinions because it's starting to eat away at me! I have a place on a PGCE Primary course for September 2012 which I am very excited about. As part of the entry requirements I have got to have an online health check which I'm expecting shortly. I don't have any serious health problems and overall I'm a really healthy and happy person. However, I have never been officially diagnosed with this condition but I know I have some form of it. It's called Emetophobia, and it's a fear of being sick. When I feel sick myself, I go into hysterics and I get ultra panicky and needy. I know that nobody likes vomiting, but I take it a lot worse than others. I suffered from it so badly as a youngster but as I'm getting older it's something I'm 'growing' out of. However, sometimes when I see people being sick it also plays away at me too, which is a real concern. As I am entering primary school teaching, children are known to be sick more than others and I'm worried this phobia is going to affect my teaching. Should I just face the embarrasment and go to the doctors and get this treated now? Also, should I put this on my health check?? Thing is as being sick is a common thing with children, I am SO SO SO SO worried it's going to affect my place Advice on this would be really grateful! Thanks.
