Unhappy Hematophobia

This may sound stupid but I have a terrible fear of blood. Whenever I see blood I become very sqeamish, and can not look at it. Sometimes it is so bad that I physically become sick. My whole day envolves me constantly worrying about cutting my self or seeing blood. At night I constantly have nightmares where I am profusely bleeding or others are bleeding. It makes my stomach quesy just thinking about blood. Sometimes even seeing blood on T.V. makes me sick. I have tryed all kinds of things to get rid of this phobia including going to a counselor. Nothing seems to work, if anyone knows how to get rid of a strong phobia I would like to hear how.
