Just wanted to let you know you're not alone...today on Rosie an actress named Denise Richards admitted that she is afraid of vomiting and being around anyone who has the stomach flu. She said she hasn't vomited for years and avoids anyone who is sick w/ vomiting illnesses. She also said it has gotten worse as she's older and she now carries a Lysol spray w/ her and sprays phones, etc...esp when travelling. Anyway I was surprised she admitted this on national Tv especially since she's also a new, young actress and not sure how people would view her. So you guys are not alone...I too am afraid of vomiting or seeing people do it (except my kids) but don't think I let it rule my life....and don't want to..

tezbear,That's so funny you posted this...I saw her on Rosie today, and also on another show where she talked about her phobia! I couldn't believe it! I was like, here's this gorgeous actress with the same problem as us! Amazing....

Yeah, I saw her on The Tonight Show about 1-1/2 weeks ago and she was talking about this. She even takes a sedative when she flies, and then puts her OWN blanket over her head to keep as many germs off as she can while she sleeps. And she totally cleans stuff in the hotel rooms. Which is a good idea, anyway. I always thought she seemed so brainless, but after hearing her talk about this, I've felt a strange affinity toward her. Hmmm. Regards, Lilymaid

HI EVERYBODY. I have avoided taking a flu shot for many years but last week I decided to get one because I sure don't want to vomit. But ther are times in life when you do have to vomit and there is nothing you can do to stop it. When I get one of those days. I drink several glasses of water mixed with baking soda. It makes it easier to vomit and it is not bitter. I then get a piece of newspaper twisted and tickle the back of my throat to make it come. Once it is done it is over. I know it's a gross subject but my ideas really work.------------------

Lucia...just wanted to mention..that the Flu Shot does not protect you from stomach flus...only influenza type flus and even than can't get every strain...there are so many. Wish they had a vaccine for stomach flu/viruses
