I don't have any worries at all with this! In fact I am fascinated to see how it works now that my veins are so bad we have to use tiny neo-natal ones and it can take a few goes to actually draw any of the precious red stuff out every four weeks!!!
No problem at all. I am a regular blood donor so it doesn't bother me. I've got so blase about it over time I can even watch the blood pouch on its little rocker without feeling sick. (It wasn't always that way.)
I've had an awful lot of blood tests done in my life and have never been squeamish about it. I prefer to watch to make sure the phlebotomist picks a good vein and then slides the needle in at the right angle - it makes a big difference it terms of the bruising and pain I get afterwards, so it's worth my while to be vigilant!
Yep, no probs. I usually watch it go into the tube. I've had blood tests my whole life so it doesn't worry me. It;s fascinating. I don't understand why people can't stand it. It's a part of your body. I even love watching medical shows that have operations in them! The bloodier the better!!
Definitely not! And can't watch getting vaccinations, either. Is there such a thing as 'needle phobia', if so, I've got it & have had it all my life! I can remember, as an 8yo at school, begging not to get the Salk Polio injection, as I was both scared of & hated needles!
Used to turn the other way at the beginning, but after a few trips to the blood donor centre , i decided to watch it was scary at first but exciting at the same time as i kew i was doing it for a good cause.
I, also a blood donor, donated my 98 pint of blood of blood late last week, & I still turn my head when the needle goes in, but I’ve never fainted, & I don’t mind watching the blood pouch in it’s rocker!
Yes I have no problem with watching her take the sample.
I think I had so many injections of one kind or another when I had a triple heart bypass they became just another thing to be the "norm".
being diabetic for 25 years means many many blood tests
at first I woudn't watch blood being taken but after a few years I started watching
i'm happy to say that over the years the procedure is now painless
No way, I hate needles as it is, I always look away, or there is no way I would let them near me with that thing, when I go to the dentist, he usually puts some sort of goo, to numb the area, before he puts in the needle, I'm so petrified of needles in the mouth!
