are you afraid of blood?

July 10, 2010 12:54am CST
One time, my teen-age son witnessed a surgical procedure and I was surprised that he told me that he nearly fainted seeing the blood. Being somebody from the medical field, I felt that it's ridiculous for someone to feel nauseated or to feel like he or she is fainting by seeing an oozing blood. I wonder then, how much people don't feel good seeing blood? Quite funny that at times, grown-up men don't feel comfortable seeing oozing blood. How about you, are you afraid of seeing an oozing blood? And what do you exactly feel or think when you don't feel good about it?

No blood doesnt faze me at all, good thing to considering i want to go into the medical field. There was a kid at my school who would faint just at the talk of blood, i remember us sitting in science and all of a sudden 'WHACK' he faints off his stool hits the edge of the window and is out cold, and what does he want to do? Be a doctor. *faceplam*
