Hi Paul,

Here is my log Day 11-20 doing PSTECH with tarantula photos.  I went from fear score of 10 to 2. I included a log because I think it would be really helpful for people to see that doing this in a methodical way you can really see the progress. One thing that was fantastic was watching the fear response in my body in the first few days go from 10 to 3 in about 10 seconds. Its like you just pass through the fear and it just dissolves. I think I am still at a 2 because I keep adding more photos I haven’t seen. Soon I will get it to the point where any random photo gets a 0 reaction.

Day 11 tested memories imagined fears started at 0 end 0 (I did this just to make sure I was at 0 before starting photos)

Day 12 photo #1 looked at photos started 10 after 3

Day 13 day 2 photos. Photo #2 started 10 after 3

Day 14 AM photo #3 started 10 after 3 or 2. Felt like doing it again in PM photo #3 started 10 after 2

Day 15 AM photo #4 started 5 after 2.

Day 16 AM photo #5 started 8 after 2. PM photo # 5 started 5 after 2

Day 17 photo #6 started 4 after 2.

Day 18 photo #7 started 3 after 2.

Day 19 AM photos several  started 3 or 2, after 2. PM started 2 after 2

Day 20 AM photos several started 1. All the prior download photos I had weren’t getting much reaction so I went to photos on the internet. I was swiping through random photos all at 1 when suddenly a scary close up got a 7 reaction, after 3.
PM started 2 after 2.

Thank you again! :)
