Ek het my lewe lank al ' n vrees vir opgooi. Ek raak mal as dit moet gebeur. Vrydag het ek een van die ergste maagvirusse ooit gehad. Elke keer as ek wil opgooi, wil ek weghardloop, raak aan die bewe. Dan op die ou end sit ek voor die toilet. Gooi op, maar niks kom uit nie. Wat my natuurlik nog erger laat voel en na ' n halfuur is ek maar net weer voor die toilet. Vrydag was die ergste ooit. Na Saterdag was ek moeg en het heelnaweek geslaap. Hoe moet ek maak om die vrees weg te kry? Ek is bang om selfs swanger te word.

Sounds like a phobia, sam, and fortunately this is something nwhich responds very well to treatment. I'd especially recommend ( after a proper assessment by a good local shrink ) CBT, Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy, which will enable you to unlearn this fear. Phobias also respond quite well to medications otherwise also used to treat Depression, but as these can cause some mild nausea, they might not be ideal for your particular fear.
