emski72 - I have tried hypnosis in the past, not for a while, but it doesn't seem to work for me :-( I do suffer with a lot of anxiety, I have to drug myself to the eyeballs to get on a plane, and I've done everything for that - fear of flying courses, hypnosis, biodfeedback, trauma counseling, all sorts of stuff. What does seem to work is saturation - one year I had to do 35 flights during the year, and when I flew several times over a week, by the last one I was like - yep, whatever, another flight! But with a break, I'm a freak again :-)
With the needles I use Emla cream to numb before I go for a blood test, so I'm thinking I'll do the same for the injections. I think maybe the thought of it is worse than it actually is, so I'm going to have a go this month and see if I can do it, with Emla, ice and in private as if my DH was around I just couldn't do it. It's one of those things I think that I have to keep to myself and do on my own to get through it my way.
I am also scared of hospitals as well, except now that I've had three D & C's that fear is fading... So I think exposure works well to get me over it, so hopefully it will be the same with the injections.
