Hi Rglady,
So glad you are on the forum! Exploring Botox injections sounds like a good plan. I really hear you when you write about needing to convince your brain not to anticipate pain – the more successful pain free experiences you have, will continue to reinforce that penetration isn’t painful and a virtuous cycle will begin. Also, Somatic Experiencing therapy may be helpful as well – it works on regulating the central nervous system when there’s been “trauma”. Let us know how you are doing and how we can continue to support you,
