Good to know that your anxiety symptoms are less and you are feeling better. For phobias please go for psychotherapy. With the process of desensitisation, the therapist can help you to get over your phobia of fainting.
Hello, Blood injection phobia is a problem with many. I would recommend therapy session by a trained therapist/clinical psychologist best luck thanks.
