Do you struggle with a blood phobia? If you do then just the thought of it or the mention of it may be enough to get you feeling anxious and fearful.
And that fear of blood may mean that certain films and TV programmes are off limits and there is no way you could even contemplate a blood test or giving blood!
As with any phobia, your mind has learnt that blood spells danger and so anything to do with it can trigger your fear response as your body automatically gets ready to take action to escape.
So if your mind has learnt the fear, how do you unlearn it?
