I Hate Getting Shots, Blood Work, And Iv's

Invasive procedures scare the hell out of me! 137 People

    Stay Away From Me!!

    I remember during my secondary 3, I had to get three shots at school, for girls, I think the name was Gardasil. It was my turn and I wished I would not faint because I hate needles like you can't believe it. I took a seat and looked nervously at the nurse. She checked my...

    Hiding!

    My veins take great exception to being stabbed; it once took 17 tries to get a single tube of blood!  I think they remember that; now they hide as soon as a needle comes anywhere close to me.So of course it figures that the only psych med that works right for me is one that...

    Not only do I hate needles, I have a phobia of them.

    I hate needles because I'm so terrified of them. I'm afraid to go to the hospital or even be dear one, and I'm afraid of doctors. Both of those things mean needles. I dread my doctor's appointment because I know they involve needles and blood work. Just the thought of getting...

    Makes My Blood Stop Circulating

    Absolutely terrifying.  A needle so sharp, piercing through flesh and through multiple layers of skin to get to where your blood circulates.  Sucking your body's work.  Makes my heart skip a beat like when we hiccup.

    Four Shots And A Blood Test

    I had been dreading this day for days. The appointment had been scheduled for almost a month, but I kept telling myself it was to far in the future to worry about. Then that dreaded day crept closer and closer. There was nothing I could do to stop it. Intellectually, I know...

    I Have Good Veins

    The bastards are always sticking right out like a bunch of fat worms under my flesh. So I just want to say that when they stick me over and over because they can't hit the vein, I am done. At that point, it's like whatever I was there for is out of the question and I want to go...

    Fear Of Needles

    My dad, his sister, and his parents are all diabetic. Since I take after my dad so much, my mom thought it would be a good idea to check my blood sugar when I was 16. She starts walking across the kitchen towards me with the little needle thing. I am not sure if you have ever...

    You know what horrifies me?! When they are going to draw blood from me, but when I walk into the lab, just seeing all the syringes and test tubes make my skin crawl!
