Phobia Phriday-Trypanophobia

For the last episode of Phobia Phriday, I’m addressing Trypanophobia, or the fear of injections. I feel like this one is relevant to the times and something that is on everyone’s mind given the pandemic. So, for all of you out there who are afraid of needles and injections, this episode is for you.

Thank you to everyone who has listened to Phobia Phriday. If you liked the series and would like more episodes dedicated to specific phobias, please let me know in the comments below, or by sending me a message requesting a specific phobia episode.

    Hi Kevin,

    I have a fear for the process of measuring my blood pressure. I get anxiety and panic attack if someone measures my blood pressure. The readings would be very high as well. I read its called as white coat hypertension

    • I didn’t know it had a name! Thanks for letting me know. I’ve had clients talk about this in the past and how it has caused a lot of difficulty for them trying to get even the most basic of physical check ups. Thanks for sharing!
