    This Won't Hurt (me)

    They don't bother me, at work i have to give injections to others. Although if a doctor or nurse says "this won't hurt" what they mean is "this won't hurt me". I never say you'll just feel a small ***** either, i'm professional and don't want any amusing answers.

    Shots

    I have been getting allergy shots for years and it has made me not care about needles at all. I never had a fear of them to begin with but if I had the choice I would not want one. Now it does not even phase me. One time I got five shots at once. Two in my left arm and three in...

    Actually I am scared of needles.

    But the fear is what makes it so exciting and makes me wet. Daddy (Master) has put small needles through my nipples a few times before and it's always so exciting. Seems strange that I like it so much. I was always afraid of getting blood work done and even shots. But with...

    I Don't Understand

    I know people with fears of needles, but I never could relate. It's not THAT painful, it's over in a second or two, and it's usually for your benefit. What's the big deal? Of course, I have an irrational fear of big bodies of water, so I'm not judging anyone!

    Nurse In Training

    When I was younger I was having blood drawn left and right. One day I got a nurse that was a bit inexperienced and she actually tore my vein. My arm bruised up big time and it looked horrible. As if that wasn't enough, she decided to just go at my other arm instead, so she tied...

    Not Even My First Shot

    My mom told me that when I was a baby and got my first shot, I just looked at the needle in my leg and went "ugh." The nurse said, "That's it?" According to her, most other kids kick and scream through the whole experience. Even as far as I can remember, I've never had problems...

    When I Donate Blood I Don't Give 100%

    I am pretty sensitive to pain, but I find that getting bloodwork is less painful than a papercut. I don't think I could inject myself with anything, but I've never had a problem with blood testing. :)
