I live with the pain during our ret-dem we were paired by two and each had to perform inject sterile water into the different sites and after that class I limply went to our physics class T_T It hurts the most near the gluteal area huhuhu!!! Lol I remember having to inject my partner twice cuz I was wrong lol!! xDDD I've been exposed to the clinical area and I can say I enjoy injecting people lol!!! xDD sterile water is heavy our CI's didn't tell us that we could always use vitamin c as a substitute because it was much lighter grrrr!!! xDD

Yes actually i'm very scared. It doesn't hurt but just the thought of needle intering my body scares me. I cry everytime i'm about to get a shot. It scared the hell out of me and after the shot, i get dizzy.

Whahhh! - Fearful children
Injection has a bit of pain because it actually a needle going through your skin. Although the pain is not really that much the thought of being pierced by a needle is somewhat fearful especially to children. But I know some adults who were unable to get over that fear so you are not actually alone. Well kids are more often than not afraid of injection. This is the reason why it takes a lot of pain to get a child through injection. I remember when I was a kid, almost everyone in the school would cry during vaccination time.

Not really. I have a high tolerance for pain. In fact, this discussion reminded me that I need to take on my flu shot this year in my company's clinic after my shift. Needles don't scare me. Would you believe that the nurses are amazed that I can still smile even when I am already in labor with my first child. I have such a high tolerance for pain that I didn't know that I am already in labor, when I thought I was only having a stomach ache.

No, needles don't scare me. I used to have really bad asthma as a kid and took frequent trips to the emergency room. And each time I would get blood drawn. After doing it so much, it just became routine for me. I suppose how painful it would be depends on where the needle is going (I've only had my arm or hand stuck with the needle). I'd probably be scared if they had to stick me somewhere I expected to be very painful, but that's because of my fear of pain in general, not specifically needles.

Many of the teenage girls are so much scary about to take injection. One of my classmate is also so much frightened. I many time told her to to hospital and take injection. But she is still fearing.

Oddly enough, it isn't the needle I fear, but the medication. I have a chest port, so I am used to needles. However, I am quite afraid of medication, as there is always the potential for side effects. Unfortunately, I have to take about thirty medications daily.

yes I am really scared to take injection because it really hurts. When I was little boy it was really very hard to take injection, and once I slapped a doctor just for giving me injection when I was 3 years old. I don't remember it but my mom tells me that I slapped a doctor. LOL

I don't see the big deal in getting an injection. It's a little needle and it only pinches for a second. I know people that are afraid of getting a needle, I guess it is a phobia or something. Look, if I needed an injection like to get a blood test or for some medical condition, I would not mind at all. It only takes a second and it's over. Don't be afraid of a needle.

Well I work in a hospital so it is really one of those things that you get used to. Before i was allowed to work in a hospital, there are a lot of vaccinations I have to take so I think you will get used to it.

I feel the same even if I'm an adult.Though the pain is not so serious,but my body will always want to avoid the needle when I have to take injection every time,and the nurse has to deter me.

Hi dream.... :) Yes, yes, yes!!! I could not even look at the place where I injected. And when I have to transfer blood from the arm veins, I could not watch because I left bad from my blood. Since I have very small veins, often blood tests are more difficult to transfer. And then at least the day I have pain in my arm, I often can not even carry my handbag. I don't like injection and I hate needle too!!! :(
