Hi everybody. I have suffered from SEVERE emetophobia and social anxiety for about four years now. My biggest fear is vomiting and/or having a panic attack in front of my friends or people that know me. In the beginning, I used to be able to "control" my vomiting, I just felt nauseous and anxious when being social, but now it is at the point where every time I do something social I will vomit. I have been on 100 mg of Pristiq for almost 6 months now, and it has helped somewhat. What ***** the most is my relationship with my best friend-I absolutely adore her and would love to spend every second of my day with her. However, I feel so anxious around her because i'm scared I will vomit/have a panic attack. She was very understanding in the beginning, but it's been rough-how can you be best friends with someone you seldomly see because of anxiety? It absolutely is breaking my heart that I can't see her, because I want to sooooooooooooo bad...but i can barely do it... I know I could stop being friends with her, but 1) She is worth it to me, and 2) I don't want to let anxiety ruin my friendship. Any suggestions? Please help me.
