Had a nice dinner with my little girl (she’s 27). She told me of two people she knows who have a fear of puking. One absolutely abhors seeing someone puking. It’s not the sight of the puke itself, it’s the sight of the person puking that really bothers her. If she sees it, she has to leave right away or it really bothers her. The other (also an a dult female) gets the willies and heebie-jeebies if she hears a person puking. Not the sight of the puking event, but the sound of it.
Have you heard of such a thing? Might there even be a word for it? If there is, I’m confident our Doper community would know. OK… a googling just now turns up emetophobia, great, there is such a word. And an SDMB search on emetophobia yields 18 threads. Wow.
Anyway I’ve never heard of that before. How many of you have? Or have not?
