PostSubject: Strange psychology thing with my training partner..   Mon Mar 08, 2010 4:02 am

Hi guys,
My training partner has been away for a while and just got back so I can start again Smile

I have been teaching him because I have experience and training and he hasn't trained much in the past.

Anyway, i've come across a strange thing that would only be his downfall if he really had to protect himself. He has a real problem with blood. There was a little bit of blood on tv last night and he was going "ahh' and looking away.. but the real story is when he had a blood test and he actually passed out and wet himself and then woke up not know what had happened.

I assume it may be from something that has happened in his past, I don't really know. But what I do know, this is a really BAD thing for self protection.. i've had several times in my line of work (not really doing it anymore though) where i've had to deal with blood and had it all up my arms from dealing with a brawl. If that happened to my friend he would be out cold just from seeing the blood even if from nothing else..

So i'm most interested in Richies response because of all his psychology work, but maybe other guys have dealt with it before also?

Any ideas how to help this?? Even if we get the physical part of training right this would be a big problem that would possibly negate all that.

-Ben

I'll jump in...

I used to start to pass out at the sight of blood or gore myself when I was a kid and in my teens. If I was channel surfing the TV and came across one of those lovely 'get the camera inside the patient on the operating room table' shows I'd immediately start to black out.

I really don't know when it stopped but I must have grown out of it as it's been a good ten years since it's happened. I suspect your training partner may be young(ish) ?

seriously, those boob job ops are rough arent they? I thought it would be all delicate but they really dig around in there, nasty, another reason to hate fake boobs.... other than that they look ridiculous and feel minging Laughing

sounds like your partner has a striaght up phobia, get him to a decent NLP /hypnotherapy/ phobia cure specialist and some good headway should be made quite quickly

blood doesnt bother me, but if I see broken arm/ legs.... No
