Hi thunderbala. I too am scared for needles until now. I have never been injected even when i go to doctor. I would rather asked for the medicine then having injection. I just can stand the thinking of the syringe stuck into my arm/bottom. I know and believe that it is not heard as (they say) it is just like being bite by ant. just a while of hurt.. then no more. But i just can't help to avoid the injection. =D i guess, there are some people in this world that have the same feeling as we do and I thought i was the only one.

I've never really been afraid of needles or injections. I'm not sure why. As a kid, I had some horrifically bad experiences with IVs and blood draws, but I impressed the nurses and doctors by just sitting there watching, even when it was going so badly that the phlebotomist was poking all around my arm and I was left bruised all over afterward. I suppose I'm just a bit of a stoic when it comes to that stuff.
