No Needles

I am not only afraid of needles. I cant even watch them when they are on TV. But as I get older, my brain has convinced me, they are NOT good. Although I know, if I have an emergency, I will have to have a needle stuck in me. I am hoping at that point, I will not know whats going on. There is a phobia of needles you know. Its just that the AMA doesn't recognize it yet. I read that it is the only phobia that can cause death. Because the fear causes the persons heart rate to rise and then fall the minute the needle is inserted. To the point where the patient loses it! Well.. No needles for me!

Oh wow, I relate to this so much. For as long as I can remember I've had an extreme fear of needles too. I can't watch them on TV either. Even when I know it's all fake and that the needle isn't actually being inserted anywhere like in horror movies but I still cringe in fear and cover my face in my hands because I can't stand the sight. I handle blood, some torture and other scary stuff just fine. But needles... Ugh, no. Keep them away from me at all costs.
