How Are You With Needles?

Recommended Posts

Are you afraid of needles? How are you with getting blood drawn and recieving injections? 

I am personally a huge baby when it comes to this. I sometimes faint whilst getting blood taken, which is referred to as vasovagal syncope.

However, when i’m drawing blood on animals, i’m fine :yeahno:

I'm more afraid of needles because of the anticipation, not because of the process of it. When I do have blood taken out or get injected, I realise it doesn't hurt as much as what I thought.

Needles used to freak me out when I was younger, though I no longer see them as a major problem, aside from being a few seconds of pain.

NOPE. That's how I deal with them. Regular needles are bad enough, but a standard shot in the arm I can at least tolerate. Drawing blood however...Just the thought of it makes me cringe and nauseous. It is horrible to me.

I'm alright when it's myself getting injected. But watching others get injected does make me cringe and want to look away. Same with watching it on a TV program or in a film. Yet I will happily watch a show where someone goes Mr Stabby with a knife on someone. Or if someone gets impaled. But a teeny tiny needle being pressed into the skin? Nope! I always automatically look away. :mlp_laugh:

The only thing I really dislike about injections is when they try to give me a plaster/bandaid afterwards and I have to tell them no. Seriously, I can't stand those things near me. Talking about them grosses me out enough. :yuck:

I used to be a lot better with needles when I was little, strangely enough. Now I can tolerate them but if I'm about to get a needle stuck in me I look the other way so I don't have to see it go in.

Shots and having blood drawn don't really bother me, but watching the vacutainer that the blood is stored in fill up really quickly can unnerve me pretty easily. There's something about the thought of a cavitation forming in my veins that just feels unsettling to me. The needles don't hurt unless the person drawing blood is really bad at it.

Why just yesterday, I was at the doctor. I didn't realize that I needed a needle stuck in me to take a blood test for the upcoming examinations I might have. The woman sticking me said to close my eyes and talk to her about anything. I chose Frozen. It was all over and taken care of in a minute with no screaming.

I used to dread needles but because of that visit yesterday, I found a way to deal with them in case I have to again.

I have never had any issue with them, to be quite honest. I was afraid of them when I was a small child, of course, but I have gotten over it with time. :darling: The thought of a needle or blood draw can be rather icky if you think about it quite a bit, though.

Needle shots are uncomfortable with me. Especially when I’m getting a blood test where they use a needle to suck my blood in which case, it feels weird.

I just pretend to not look when I’m getting a needle shot.

No problem at all with needles. It sounds weird, but I like to watch the little tubes fill up if I need blood work done.

I used to be really nervous when it came to needles but I've mostly gotten over it.

Well, I'm really simple when it comes to needles: NOT EVEN IN YOUR DREAMS. Supplicating me, threatening me or anything else will not make me have a needle plant itself in me. End of story.

They don't scare me, I'm fine with getting shots/blood taken. But I don't care to watch them do it. I just look off into space and let them do their job.

I don't really have a problem with needles. They're not exactly pleasant obviously and I still tense up every time, but I don't scream and cry like I did when getting a needle as a kid and a small pinprick, and some temporary numbness is often better than the shooting pain that will follow otherwise.

I'm fine with it, just not in the mouth for anesthetic.

Since I inject myself heroin everyday, I'm pretty okay with needles.

Okay no, but seriously, needles do make me nervous, a few years ago I almost started crying when they took a blood sample for the military, needless to say, they didn't see me as suitable. It has gotten better tho, now I just look away whenever a doctor takes a blood sample from me, but waiting in line for getting the blood sample taken is still a bit uncomfortable for me.

If I look away I can remain still, but my eyes do fill with tears and I tense up, and won't relax for another minute afterwards. You can just feel the needle in your skin and- ugh.

I’m ok with them, they kinda creep me out a little but I manage. :laugh:

I don’t mind them at all since I know I need them sometimes to stay healthy :)

They aren't my idea of fun, but I can certainly tolerate them. I've had a lot of needles/shots from last summer to now thanks to my feet problems (dry needling at physical therapy and steroid shots). I'll gladly take a shot if it'll help me with my chronic foot pain which is a thousand times worse.

Needles are no problem to me. I fear a night at work much more. I wish I could make $100 a poke.
