You're so right (how did you do that haha?) we're trying to figure out if it could be Emetaphobia - and OCD at the same time - especially as it's lasted for about 6 years! Usually they last for about 2-3, and then they change to something else. Could also just be my OCD getting worse as I go through adolescence. Thanks for replying
