    I used to be terrified of needles. If a doctor pulled a needle on me my fight or flight response would kick in and I'd run out of the room. But there came a point where I didn't have an option. I had to get a blood test and there was no way of avoiding it.
    I was given some kind of pill to take before I went in to get it that was supposed to calm me down. It didn't. I got there and the second I saw the needle I had a panic attack. They put me in a room so that I could calm down. I sat in there for awhile and finally decided that I had to do this. I really had no choice and I might as well get it over with. So I finally let them stick me.
    It wasn't nearly as bad as I thought it would be. It turns out it isn't even really painful. It's more the idea that someone's sticking a needle in you and extracting blood that's bothersome rather than the pain. I still get nervous when faced with a needle but nowhere near the way I used to be. I can handle it fairly easily now.

    My dad and the doctor use to have to pin me down because I hated needles so much. I still don't relish them and I freak a little if someone pulls one out unexpectedly. But for the most part I can be unmoving when getting a shot. At one point I thought I was past the fear. Long story short I smelled the alcohol and all the anxiety came right back. I have to go in today. I'm not planning on a shot but I'm afriad someone might bring it up. If they do I'll probably just dodge it.

    Er...I like you too...but please don't wrinkle the plaid! :news:

    Hope the infection doesn't do any real harm and you get past it soon. The one that knocked out part of my hearing in one ear permanently was the summer I recall coming downstairs with my head turned completely sideways...because ONLY in that position could I keep my balance...yeesh.

    Although I'm a little surprised by myself, I'm thinking about considering taking up a little "extra cirricular" project, and considering doing something I swore off years ago: a new webcomic, if only like a miniseries web comic... I'm not so sure I'll actually do it, but I guess I'll see how I feel about it later.

    Okay, but you have to buy your own, and we're calling a cab if we have more than two!

    I'm half-stuck in an alternate reality today. Dreamt a real person was fictional, and we both knew it but I didn't want to acknowledge it at first. Very strange.
