    Don't feel bad at all-fear of needles is REALLY common.

    Next time you have to get a shot or get blood drawn, close your eyes and hold your breath-the nurse at my doctor's office told me this and it works.

    They don't really bother me, but I drew blood at the hospital and I had several people even cry they were so terrified. I was human pin cushion when I was taking my classes for Phlebotomy.

    I'm deathly allergic to pain. It trumps my severe allergy to needles because lovely, lovely demerol comes in needles.

    Months spent in the hospital cured me of needle fears, but I really hate the alcohol swabbing, makes my skin itch, but you can't scratch the IV out. [​IMG]
