can't stand the sight of (someone or something)

Cannot tolerate encountering someone or something due to an aversion or a strong sense of disgust or dislike. At this point, he's betrayed me so many times that I can't stand the sight of him. I could never be a doctor or nurse—I just can't stand the sight of blood.
