Understanding emetephobia

Sometimes the things that scare us are so far removed, so long ago, so remote, we can't remember when was the last time. And so it can be for the Fear of Vomiting, or emetephobia. Some people have spent so long, and been so successful at, avoiding vomiting that they couldn't tell you the last time they actually did it. But the fear is so strong as to control one's life, restricting the kinds, or amounts, of food or avoiding those things, like roller coasters or airplanes, that might trigger queasiness.
