What do you think of needles?
Posted 6/13/11
I've always been afraid of them and even though I've had shit loads in my time, I still shiver at the sight of an injection. It took a nurse 30 minutes to put a cannula in my hand because a) I was terrified and b) she was a trainee and didn't have a clue what she was doing. She wrecked my hand and made my fear even worse. The senior doc put it in properly straight away. Its weird because I don't mind tattoo needles or piercing ones at all, so what is it about the medical needle that we fear so much?

Never liked them. They hurt like crap.

Hated injections ever since I was a kid even though I still get them. Once when a nurse was trying to take blood from me she kept stabbing and digging the needle into my arm to find the main line and yeah... a minute of that makes me hate needles. So now I'm not too afraid of getting a tattoo because they won't be jamming a needle about a half an inch into my arm...

Think of an inch of needle being jabbed between your knuckles 5 times. Thats what this bitch did to me! My hand was actually purple, I let her train on me at first but then I just said "No stop! Just stop!". Tattoos are fine, its like being scratched by a cat (actually almost identical to that) Nothing to it ^_^

Yeah that does not sound fun... At all... I would have started swearing and yelling at the lady, especially back in the day when my knuckle/finger area was all calloused, she would have had to jam it in there like she was puncturing leather. But yeah, I'm just glad the lady didn't hit a nerve in my arm, that would have sucked even worse.

i'm fine as long as the person injecting the needle knows what they're doing. being a nurse-in-training's guinea pig isn't very fun.

It depends where I'm being injected.

Ahem..... I actually don't mind needles, though I can understand the concept of 'fear' for them, I don't find them scary.

"Relax.. this won't hurt.."

It. Always. Hurts.

Even when I relax, it hurts like hell. It's on my top 3 of things I hate.

Me too. I've never fussed over getting them the less of a issue you make over it the quicker it will be. I've never been one to fear the doctor or dentist. Its ironic that so many people terrify themselves over being jabbed by a single needle but would happily subject themselves to a series of needles for a tattoo. Just because the outcome seems cooler That is psychology for you.

They don't hurt at all, I just don't like to look at my arm while the needle is in it -_- So all i have to do is Look away and Pretend like Nothing Happened
