Part of my exposure therapy for my phobia was to bring in photos of things that trigger me. Hospital offices, syringes, blood pressure cuffs.
I brought these images in about a month ago. The first sessions with them had me breaking diwn in tears with my anxiety at a 5 (1-10 scale where goal is in therapy for it to stay at 4-5.)
Last night I held the photos. They didn't even bother me.
I'm not cured but I can't believe the progress. I'm actually proud of myself and want to anounce it to everyone.
