2021.10.25 20:52 joker169 My story and how I got better. Medication can work and you should talk about your emetophobia to you doctor.
TW : This post is not censored.
TL;DR : Emetophobia was ruining my life, medication completely changed that.
For as long as I remember, I have had anxiety.
My emetophobia started in high school at around 15 years old. I remember panicking in the bus every day and trying to stay still in order to not vomit. However, it went away after 1 year. I don’t know what happened, but I stopped worrying about getting nauseous.
Then, in college, one random day, it hit me again. I started getting nauseous and went home as fast as I could. I didn’t vomit, but started to feel very sick. From then on, I started getting worried about nausea. For 3 years, I had constant fear of vomiting in class, in the bus, when hanging out with friends, etc. You know what I mean… I got to the point of not being able to eat anything, being afraid of getting nauseous… no dairies, no gluten, very afraid of cooking my own meat, etc. I had panic attacks very frequently, feeling like I was going to die, feeling like I’m going to faint any time. It was really horrible. I was looking up everything on the Internet (very bad idea !) and it was getting worse, but I was way too anxious to go to the doctor.
Last year, I tried to get a grip on my life and contacted a doctor and they told me I had GERD and prescribed me anti acid medication. It really helped, because I had serious acid reflux from the anxiety and it was obviously very triggering for my emetophobia. Mind you, I didn’t know about emetophobia or that it was all due to anxiety at the time. The reduced reflux really helped me and I finally found information about emetophobia and anxiety. It really clicked that was what I had.
I had this summer completely off and it started really bad… My emetophobia/agoraphobia went completely off the chart and couldn’t get out of my appartment. I don’t know how I gathered the courage, but I got an appointment with an other doctor. For the first time in my life, I talked about my anxiety issues, emetophobia and what I have been living with for the past years. They prescriped me with with an antidepressant.
I looked up that antidepressant on the Internet and was really really scared… The first common side effects were nausea and throwing up…. However, since I was really desesperate and I was off for the rest of summer, I took the chanced and started taking the medication.
What a life changer.
It didn’t work in the first few days. I didn’t have any nausea and didn’t throw up, but I felt very weird, but kind of similar to a cannabis high. I had some ups and downs with anxiety/emetophobia for the first few weeks, but after a month my emetophobia went mostly away.
Now, it has been 3 months and I rarely think about if I’m nauseous or not, I can go shopping or go out with friends without constantly worrying about how I feel. I’m very happy and feel like I can go on with my life.
Has it completely gone ? No, but it’s 200% more manageable. I haven’t had any anxiety/panic attacks in weeks.
In conclusion, this isn’t to tell you this or that medication is good for you, that’s your doctor’s job. But, I can tell you that it’s worth trying and that it can defintely help. Don’t be afraid of side effects, they can happen (and I was lucky it didn’t happen for me) but they’re worth it if you can go on with your life.

One LG was $7000 and now is $4000. The other I can’t remember but something like from 4000 to 2000. I don’t have the money for that but thought that maybe someone could benefit from that

2021.10.25 20:52 SomewherePractical82 21 [M4F] NY - Law Student Looking for Something Serious
Re-reading my post below just made me realize how dry it is, so here's a sentence proving my self-awareness. With that out of the way, let's get to the boring stuff!
I'm a law student pursuing a J.D. in NYC. I'm mostly interested in fantasy, historical fiction (and non-fiction), gaming (PC exclusively!), finance, Gilbert & Sullivan operettas, musicals, military history (with an emphasis on the Napoleonic period), and good movies. I also like quality post-ironic memes (and legacy memes, I guess). I'm a bit of a homebody and enjoy comfy evenings at home (either reading, gaming, or watching movies with family), but I love going out to museums and galleries.
Favorite movies include Barry Lyndon, LotR, Master and Commander, The Big Short (not that "great" on its own, but it got me interested in finance), Amadeus, and Waterloo (the 1970 one). I generally dislike most movies based on comics, with the exception of Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy, since those three are pretty good.
Favorite musicals include Les Mis, Phantom of the Opera, Chicago, Evita, and some others (mainly Andrew Lloyd Webber). Favorite novels/novel series include ASoIaF, the Sharpe books by Bernard Cornwell, the Cicero trilogy by Robert Harris, and some books by Umberto Eco. I'm also reading The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss and I recently finished The Last Wish by Andrzej Sapkowski, which is the only Witcher book I've read. I found it okay-ish, but a bit underwhelming considering how amazing the Witcher games are (Wild Hunt will forever remain my all-time favorite RPG). Speaking of favorite games, I'm a big fan of The Elder Scrolls (Oblivion and onwards), Witcher 2 and 3, the Total War series, Europa Universalis 4, Stellaris, Hearts of Iron 4, Victoria 2, Crusader Kings 2 (and 3 I guess) Red Dead Redemption 2, Mount & Blade, Minecraft (a bit of a meme, but it's fun) and some casual stuff I play on the side.
I also do worldbuilding and have my own little fantasy universe that I work on whenever I have any free time (which has generally not been the case recently), including writing short stories. This is also something I would really love to talk about if we get a conversation going.
This brings us to the crucial point: What am I looking for? Ideally someone who shares as much in common with me as possible. Major pluses would be if you like fantasy or gaming since these are always fun to talk about, but this is by no means a must. In terms of politics, I really don't care either way provided you're not obnoxious or sensitive about anything. I don’t like labels or associating with anything in partisan terms. I have some relatively conservative beliefs and I’d like to think I’m somewhat conservative as a person (risk-averse, looking for stability rather than excitement, and so on), and I generally tie that in with my mildly anti-corporate stance, since I’m not entirely sure how you can justify being simultaneously pro-big business and pro-family (I’m most definitely the latter).
I'm very much looking for something long-term and I have a general plan laid out for how I want my life to play out. I recently got a job offer from a NY law firm for when I graduate (and pass the bar, and the MPRE, and all the other stuff), so the career aspect is all set; now all that's left is to find a gf, to be completely blunt. From there onwards, I want to raise a family in the long term (whenever it becomes plausible and agreeable for both parties), settle down, and live a nice comfy life. That's about it.
If any of this sounds compatible or appealing, feel free to send me a DM via chat. I'm up for watching something through Discord, playing stuff, or just casual conversation.
Note that I am only looking for women (ideally aged between 19 and 21). My maximum range would be 18-23. Big plus if you're in NY or nearby!
This final reference only makes sense if you're familiar with G&S, but I confirm that I can whistle all the airs from that infernal nonsense Pinafore.
