I got my blood drawn today! It was actually pretty cool. Are you afraid/hate needles?
I love to watch the needle go in and the blood come out.
No. I have 6 tattoos plus my eyeliner is tatted on. You can't be afraid of needles and let someone use them on your eyelids lol
Wow that's brave!!
I don't mind needles, but they have a hard time finding a vein.
Yeah that can be tricky and painful!
Yes. They've made me bleed around the needle, gotten air in my vein, & poked me so many times just jabbing at a vein that I looked like I had track marks.
Ow sounds awful! When my sister was in the ICU last month they were having a hard time finding her veins. She was getting stabbed by the needle so many times!!
I give myself about 4 needles a day, so the fear is completely gone for me.
Needles for what if I may ask??
Insulin for type 1 diabetes.
I used to be scared of needles. Ever since a terrible reaction to colonoscopy prep and how bad I felt and how much the iv helped I've been over it. Now I self inject for migraines and am fine :)
Sucky reaction but that's good you're okay with it now :)
Thanks! It's so much less stressful to be over it!
I always feel light headed and faint when blood is being drawn but fine if I am stuck with a needle.
I used to be. Then I got a job in a hospital lab and was promoted to supervisor of laboratory assistants, including the phlebotomists, & had to learn to draw blood. I got over the fear.
That's so cool!
