… Yes, I am! Of blood and blood tests…


I remember, as a child, making it nearly impossible for my dad to take me for a blood test. I used to scream, cry my heart out! Finally with a lot of persuasion, get ready for the brutal act of injecting the syringe in my vain. However, all effort would go for a toss, the moment I would see the syringe… and that would make me hysterical again…. 😦

Some things in life, you just cant get rid of… My phobia for blood being one of them! No matter how hard I try, I need to give myself a prior notice of a day or two before a simple thing as a blood test!!! 😦

The only thing that calms me at that point of time, is my father’s presence… He has a calming and soothing effect on me… He closes my eyes and holds my hand… and then, I feel nothing! 🙂
