i am a twenty yr old female and have been emetaphobic (phobic of throwing up or sick generally) for 10yrs. I used to suffer panic attacks that have mostly gone now, but after i was diagnosed with ibs 3 yrs ago food has started to control my life. I am terrified of being ill because of what i eat, and frequently feel sick (either imagined or a real symptom of ibs). Its controlling my life- please help me! I had cbt for over a yr but no difference, i am gluten and lactose free, i took anti depressants but i dont really want to again as they dont seem to help, i dont amoke and am t-total, i excercise regularly, tried yoga, meditation, self-talk etc. If anyone can suggest anything new that would help please do!
