    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...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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.

    Blood dose not bother me one bit

    nor does my own. However, girlfriend's blood is another story just because I'm protective.

    - 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.
