seeing blood?

Works? If so, yes!: This is a fairly uncomplicated behavioral technique - if it works, it's fine! I guess the reason to be dealing w/ the sight of blood could be important for some reasons, but not if all you want is to deal better w/ it when necessary. (Please don't be a monster!!) ...Read more

Some people do have seizures though with vagal response. ...Read more
