Show 089 Intro to Emetophobia or Fear of Throwing Up

Emetophobia is a strong, profound fear that your are gonna vomit or as the young ones say, throw up. It isn't so much about the actual throwing up but the intense fear of it. So much so that you structure your life to be as people and germ free as possible.

The hard part is to admit that you are doing avoidance work instead of dealing with this specific fear. Step one is laying the ground floor of information. Step two is finding credible safe resources to help you build your tool kit to recovery.

Too Much Awareness and Not Enough Substance?

Little ditty I found at the Hogg Foundation. It is a discussion about the emphasis about mental health awareness campaigns.




Most of the campaigns try to focus on removing stigmas and encouragement to seek help and support. Some are targeted to certain populations, other are message for the population at large to stop with the demonetization of people with a mental health condition.

This podcast ask the question, is it too much? Is it smoke without providing substance? Is it constantly waving The Boogie Man without a means of understanding complex details and nuances?

Could be.

Maybe.

Maybe not.
