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's not the same..  they don't mind that much..  dogs are fine with it. I like to do microchip implants because I feel a sense of satisfaction about it. :)

I no longer have any problems giving them to animals. I do it for a living. Animals don't mind most the time. It's actually usully the restraint they don't like. Anyway. Yeah I can give them to animals, though I don't like microchiping because the needle is so big ( but EVERYONE knows and says that).

Brooms/ Yard brushes. The noise they make. Toothpaste adverts.. Toilet flushes? Normal????????

Well they are better saying something, rather tan just 'going for you' with it. <BR>Not assuming this is the major difference that led to your opposite reaction, but a place to start looking: Lower level stress at predictable times is going to have a totally different effect than severe stress happening unpredictably. 'Severe'ness being in the eye of the beholder..

Oh, yeah, I did have my knee opened-up under a 'local anaesthetic'.. which meant a big needle! I'm always digging out splinters with a pin or sewing needle..

Ten times in the mouth!! Owww!!!!!<br />

They only stabbed me in the leg three times. <br />

I was cramped up and couldn’t walk for a week after that though. Stupid huge needles.

*lol* yeah they did that to me too. Ten times in the mouth, ooch.. I was screaming my head off..<br />
I'd rather be at the other end! I got used to giving injections, and learned quickly to get on with it and to not share the nervous energy. That is v important with animals.

I prefer to avoid needles too. <br />
I've always thought it would be awful if I had diabetes and had to give myself shots. I wouldn’t be able to do it. Of course, the thought of having to give shots to another person -or animal even always made me feel rather sick too. I had a bad experience with them when I was younger -the bad experience was that I actually got poked with one!
