@ ‘Counting breaths’ helped me calm myself during my mammogram

First of its kind report from a woman, on how she practiced ‘Counting breaths’ to calm herself during a mammogram screening. Prior to the screening, she was practicing the technique to get sleep and to be calm under stress.  

“I had to repeat my mammogram to clear the doubt of the radiologist on the first screening report. This time, more views were taken than before, some of them with extra compression, to get a clearer picture. In one of the views it hurt and I yelled. One more hurting view was  going to be taken. This time I didn’t want  to yell like a baby. I badly needed a coping technique. The ‘counting breaths’ technique came to my mind (1). I immediately started counting my breaths. The hurting view was done in a few seconds and I went through it without distress.

It was a big relief for me to have this technique handy for coping with such a stressful situation.”

I have been using the ‘tip mode’ (2) or ‘segment mode’ (3) whenever I opened my mouth for dental work. Absolutely no stress! My dental surgeon who did root canals and extractions under local anesthesia commented every time “I wish all my other patients were like you!”

(1) Husband and wife living are living in New Jersey. The husband found this web site when he searched on the internet for a solution to his unbearable stress. He contacted me by phone from the contact information in the web site. To start with, I am guiding him with phone support while he is practicing based on the documents in this web site. Once he gains confidence in the practices, hopefully he can train his wife.
