I know what you're thinking. Yeah, everybody is afraid of them. Well does every one STILL cry when they have to get a shot or blood drawn? And how about two days ago when I had to get an MRI done and sat in the chair by myself waiting for the nurse to put the IV in my arm? I cried, for about five minutes while the nurse went through the procedure for the MRI. I then proceeded to tell her that I was going into LPN school. I assume she thinks I'm nuts. I really have no problems with needles when it comes to other people, but when it comes to me, it's a whole different story. Plus on top of that, I have two tattoos. Really Amy? Two tattoos and you can't handle one little needle?
Truth is, it doesn't even hurt. Not that bad or compared to tattoos anyway. As I look down at the little red dot on my arm from the last needle, it's a pain I can't even remember. It's like the never ending and always re-occuring mental block in my head. As soon as I hear that I have to have anything done involving needles, my heart starts racing, I get sweaty palms, and when the time actually comes, I cry. Every time afterwards I think, Amy, that was stupid. Someday, I plan to beat this fear. I want to give blood and help those that need it, but I am just terrified at the fact that I have to sit there with a needle in my arm.
Does anyone else have a rational/irrational fear that they want to beat? Or do you have any tricks to beating those kinds of fears?
