Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Overcome Fears & Phobias (Audio CD)
I bought this CD a few years ago when I was waiting for an appointment for an MRI, I'd had 2 before which had both triggered my claustrophobia and left me a trembling wreck for hours afterwards, not to mention taken up valuable time for the nurses trying to get me in the machine so when my 3rd MRI was due I listened to this CD, only twice because my appointment came through much quicker than anticipated. On the day I was calm, however on the previous ones it was when I saw the machine that I started to freak out so I was a bit nervous about that part. I shouldn't have worried, I went in first time with no near panic attack behaviour, found myself smiling throughout and felt completely at ease the whole time. I was thrilled.
Fast forward to a couple of weeks ago and I needed an endoscopy which didn't worry me until someone told me I'd be gagging and fighting for breath throughout so rather than chance freaking out on the day I listened to the CD again and imagine it going smoothly. On the day no nerves at all not even when I saw the equipment. I didn't gag once as the scope went down my throat and I was calm and relaxed (and breathing fine) all the way through which made it easier for me and the hospital staff.
So it works, for a phobia like my first time and a fear as in my second.
