last week I confronted the other one of my fears. and I decided right there on the spot that I don’t have to force myself to pull my act together and just do it. instead, I stood up for myself and walked out of the situation, without even a trace of regret. maybe some fears are not meant to go up in smoke.

I am inching closer to my goal. I handled acupunture needles and no fainting, screaming or other inappropriate uncontrolled behavior.
wow, I almost, but only almost, was confronted with my phobia outside the normal settings. and I did not freak out or faint. I might actually have been fairly ok if this had become a reality. maybe we’ll find out later this month or in september.
I think I can get there…. though it’s still hard to do, I am able to remain reasonably calm (compared to, say, three years ago) and at least not freak out to the point that I represent a serious threat to myself and others.
I will be confronted with one of my phobias later this afternoon…..
