    Hello all,

    I want to check if I am the only person who is afraid of needles. For me it is the fear of pain thought I know it is not painful. This may look childish for many, but believe me today I tried to postpone visiting a doctor fearing she will ask me to take a blood test. :roll:
    Before I used to cry when the nurse opens a syringe bottle, but now I try to control.
    but I have seen small kids around 8-10 years showing their hand for the test without any fear.
    Anyway today my dh got a topic to laugh at gigglingsmiley

    Droplet, am there, no worries, even today I cry at the sight of it and when pregnant, they needed an extra nurse to hold me while taking blood tests.

    its not the pain alone, but the sight of the sharp, evil needle that doesn't work for me.

    Let me share with you another story.

    first visit.
    i visited a dentist last year. I started crying when she took the needle out. Seeing me cry she called out for her assistant to hold my hands.
    After we came out my dh was like laugh1smiley for the whole day.
    he even took a photo of me crying and he send it to my mother.
    Next day on the phone my mom and my dh were having good time. friendssmiley

    Second visit.
    my dh and I was waiting at the reception for the doctor to call us inside.Then her assistant came out and accompanied me to the doctors room.
    When we were walking thru the corridor

    Me to assistant :" are you going needles today also"
    Assistant : Yes. We may have to
    My reaction : :cry: shakehead
    Dh reaction : gigglingsmiley

    Fast forward today :

    i have to take my flu shot. I have been giving out lame excuses and keep on postponing. When dh ask me to come yesterday I said we will go tomorrow. When today he called I told him not today let's go tomorrow. I don't know how am I going to escape tomorrow
