Fear of Copy Paper - Ainsley - 09-06-2018 11:25 AM

Hi! My name is Ainsley. My main fear is copy paper and being cut by it. Often, I'll be near paper or hear it rustling and feel the sensation of paper cutting my eyes. This fear can be triggered by any sense, including touch, sight, or the sound of paper rustling or being cut. The closer I am, the worse it is. If I cover my eyes, I feel it cut my hands.
I've tried many coping skills, including crochet, deep breathing, reasoning, and using a barrier between my hand and the paper. Tomorrow, I'm going to try imagining my dog licking me when I think about paper. Any other ideas would be appreciated.
