Hey all! I have a question.

So a friend who I have been hanging with daily is having his older brother come over Wednesday. His older brother has been throwing up lately... He has the stomach bug. Once my friend is exposed he could either 1)get sick or just 2) carry the germ. How long should I wait to see him again? Like a week after his older brother leaves and he hasn't been sick, would that be okay and safe??

Okay, so 48 hours after his brother goes home? Because his brother will obviously still be carrying the virus by Wednesday even if he stops throwing up today. And if my friend doesn't get it within 48 hours of his brother leaving he isn't carrying it? And it's safe? What about the surfaces in his house his brother touches??

Unfortunately his contract isn't being renewed so.... I'm being transferred so someone new. And I really liked him but maybe the other psychiatrist will be more willing of the thought of emetophobia.
And I need to start cognitive behavior therapy... Alot of these issues come from my abnormally horrible self image we think. I'm so negative on myself
CBT will be good for you!! dont be so hung up on the diagnosis emetophobia, it is a related to the other things and once you can get your anxieties under control...the emetophobia will hopefully calm down.

Oh for sure! I figured that with treating these other things, the emetophobia will be treated on the side as well. Thanks for this encouragement!! It means alot (: and I do believe CBT will be good, I really need it. I have alot of "self" problems that are abnormal apparently -rolls eyes- at least that's what my mom says haha.

If it were me, I would feel comfortable even being around the BROTHER 48 hours after he has stopped being sick. 24 hours is normally a safe bet, 48 hours is an insurance policy

Oh wow... His brother comes tomorrow and leaves Wednesday. I know he was getting sick yesterday. I'm just worried about him contaminating the surfaces of the house! Ill have to ask when he stopped getting sick, maybe yesterday was the last time he got ill and by tomorrow it'll be 48 hours. I guess if my friend and the other people in the house doesn't get sick by three days after his brother leaves everything is okay?

Oh yeah totally. I'm sure it'll be fine. And if you're worried about it, just be sure to wash your hands before touching your face or eating (which we all should do anyway lol).

I agree. Keep your hands away from your face, wash your hands often, maybe keep hand sanitizer with you. Even if he was still sick, with good hygiene you can avoid it.

And think of how proud you will be of yourself when you look back on this next week and realize you faced it and you are fine!

And a third thing, my emetophobia was helped by treating the underlying anxiety that caused it. Do even if the dr says you have an anxiety disorder and not emet, the emet will be helped by treating the anxiety.

So, how did everyone do with the weekend of food? We did really well. Ate turkey for the first time in 3 (almost 4) years, and yesterday ate chicken for the first time in about that long as well. No panic attacks, no overeating- really nice and calm weekend for both of us.

.....now, it's the case of the Mondays, back at work again - blerg . At least tonight hubs and I are (hopefully) going to be putting up the Christmas tree. His car is at the shop so my MIL and I carpooled to work this morning so he could take mine across town to his work. If we get the car back on time the tree will go up, if not, it'll have to wait until Thursday. Just a few more weeks until another break though- we can do it!
