Lachanophobia is a rare phobia meaning the fear of vegetables. This is a condition I have had for my entire 25 years. I have not eaten a vegetable
(except rhubarb) since i quit eating baby food. I am not overweight, I have no health problems, I get plenty of exercise and I do eat fruit
occasionally. Now I am not an extreme example ie one of those people that have panic attacks at the sight of a vegetable I rather enjoy cutting and
cooking them for my wife. But no matter how hard I try I cannot get myself to ingest them. I immediately start throwing up when they enter may mouth.
Dont come here and start the oh grow up and eat your veggies bs I am so sick of hearing that. Lately I have been thinking more and more about my
health and how long I want to live. I have tried everything forcing myself (failed horribly), therapy (unsuccessful), and people have tried to sneak
them in. I am ridiculed by every veggy loving person that finds out about this aspect of my personality. I mean I dont eat fast food at all or eat
processed foods and yet I have had people that eat mcdonalds 3 meals a day bashin on me. My diet consists of meats and grains. Anybody have a similar
issue that theyve gotten through?
