Does anyone else have emetophobia? I have a horrible fear of food borne illness's mainly as you normally don't throw up with the flu once your an adult. Anyways its gotten worse, I won't let anyone cook for me, I wash my hands with scolding water so much I think I actually lost sensitivity. If I eat anything that has a 1% chance of having food poisoning I freak out for days and won't leave the house. I won't touch anything I eat I use utensils, and I try to open things with my elbows so I don't touch anything someone may have touched with raw meat on their hands. I've even rubbed hand sanitizer on my mouth if I thought I touched my mouth after touching anything that was out of my safe zone. Help me please get over this!
