    Not Really You See I Don't Mind Doing It to Others

    It's just when someone tries to do it to me that I flip-out. Especially threatening if it's a man weilding the long needle..  *shivers and chills all up my spine* I don't mind sticking really thick needles into dogs and cats. They have a different physiology anyway, it...

    Hello There (:

    Hello, I'm Katie. I've had belonephobia since I was about 10. It was trauma-induced. I got into a bike accident (with myself and a parked car! I'm clumsy!) And the handlebars pushed my pancreas into my spine, of all things. I was admitted to the Children's Hospital of...

    Not Sure Why...

    I've always had a fear of needles, and to be honest, anything medical (Doctors, dentists, hospitals) And recently its been getting worse. I had my 3rd HPV a while ago, and apparantly I was hysterical, but I don't even remember it. Just writing this I've found myself bringing my...
