Aeronausiphobia: The Fear of Vomiting because of Airsickness

Aeronausiphobia is the irrational and extreme fear of vomiting that is caused by airsickness.

This one is easy for me to imagine because I tend to have motion sickness quite often. It's one thing when your in your car with family or friends, but when you're on an airplane with strangers the idea of puking all over the place can be terrifying.

If you've been on an airplane before and have become airsick then most likely you have developed this phobia. Social puking no matter the cause can be extremely embarrassing and if you've done it once you don't want to do it again!

If you have this phobia please share your story. When did it begin and how do you deal with it?
