This instructable is based off of an article that I found in Popular Science. According to the article fears are triggered by memories, even from 70 years before. A drug is being tested to cut off the cycle that makes the fear connections between memories and current senses, see popsci for more info. But anyway, the drug would most likely work better that this experimental method but figured that through self physcology you can at least make your certain fears not so drastic.
Please note that this is just an experimental theroy, I am not a physcologist, I am just a thinker, if you screw youself up really badly, it's not my fault, and sorry for none of my own pics.
Step 1: Rules
1. Honesty, participants (or me) have to be honest, if it scared the crap out them than that has to be included in research.
2. Each experment must be followed exactly, variations may not be excepted as comparison wont be possible
3. Result format must be the same, see last step.
Step 2: First Theory
my first theory is simply imgaining those bad memories as something different or convincing myself that they didn't happen. This might take a while, so I will do it while i lay awake in bed, the only place where there are no distractions.
This takes alot of imagination so if it isnt physicly possible if your head as you change the memory... who gives a crap! I think do what ever it takes to overcome your fears even a little bit
Step 3: Result Format
Over the course of (days):
Scale of 1-10 how well it worked( be honest):
further expermintation needed for theory?:
