In brief: At age 41?

I don't know whether you've put your correct age on this question, but it appears you're 41 years old.
If this is true, you do not need your mother's permission to get help for ocd or emetophobia. You are capable of making your own decisions and devoting resources to help yourself. Psychiatrists and psychologists are able to evaluate and respond to your needs. Best wishes.
