Can be treated: You've shown courage in writing to healthtap and that's a big plus. Get with your physician and see about a referral for a short course of cognitive-behavioral or desensitization therapy. It's like minor surgery on your thought patterns and your triumph is likely to carry over in other areas of your life. In the meantime, think why am i having the injection -- the good things it makes possible.
