    - Are you alright? You look pale.

    - Yes, I'm okay. - Okay. (pause) Your vessels are very-very thin, I can hardly find them with the needle. - Yeah, I'm always cold, dunno why. (pause) Have you found the vein? - Yes, but blood is hardly moving. (pause) Are you alright? - Yes. But it's better to have sal ammoniac...

    As soon as I see someone bleeding,

    even if it's just a small cut caused by a knife I start to get dizzy and nauseous immediately. I've actually fainted a couple times because of blood, and I can't even count the times I was on the verge of fainting. Those are not experiences I'm very fond of.

    If it's in a movie, fine, if it's in a picture fine...But if you're bleeding profusely in front of me I get queasy...Not at the sight of my own blood, but of yours.

    It's the Smell

    It's actually the smell of human blood that I can't stand. It makes me pass out. I feel like I have no control over it. I really want to get over this, if it is possible.

    My 7 year-old Sister just came in from on the street covered in blood. She'd fallen off of her scooter and scraped her cheek and cut her lip. I'm ashamed to say I just had to walk from the room. It was just too much blood and I personally was beginning to feel faint. I doubt I...

    Too Much

    Its why I could never be a doctor. Seeing people's insides is just too much. I can't stand looking at my own. I've been scratching a place on my leg where I think I've been bitten and it's now bleeding. It actually took me so long to go and get a tissue that some has now dried...

    It Makes Me Weak......

    I would be completely useless if someone were bleeding to death and needed my help, although I would at least call 911 for whoever it was. I just can't stand the sight of blood it makes my knees buckle and my stomach churn. Ugh, and those people that like to watch operations on...
