I don't mind needles...in fact was stuck today to get some test done. I give blood regularly, and since I had lap band surgery, I have to have fills done every so often. This entails a syringe with saline being injected into your lapband port (located in your abdomen). Most sessions are done under X-ray, so you can enjoy the thrill of watching barium travel down your esophagus into your stomach and out. The part that gets you is when you are in the Xray and drinking the barium, you have to hold the syringe and make sure it doesn't fall out of your abdomen...the doctor has you keep it in until he is done making adjustments so he doesn't have to poke you twice.

I hate them with a passion!!!

Not so bad, I had a really good pediatrician growing. He used to distract me by giving me candy or playing video games to divert my attention from the needle. So I've never really had a fear of them.

It makes me feel like a once-a-year junkie who has a minion to give me a fix. Tie my arm with a rubber strip, insert needle with whatever the hell it is... yeah lol. But if I am doing a blood test, my mind gets possessive.. The prick with the needle is manageable, but the feeling of a needle sucking on my blood I don't like... It's my blood =(

strangers who I've never met/rarely see stabbing cold, metal foreign objects into my body and pushing chemicals with names i have never heard before and can't properly pronounce on the first try into my blood? no thank you.
but i think i have a phobia more than a fear, as in i am fine with needles, they don't scare me, but there's some psychological thing that makes me hate them uncontrollably. last time i had to get a shot i was literally biting my tongue to take my mind off it so i didn't knock the nurses lights out.

hate needles. couldnt even look at one when i was little without having cold sweats, now a days i can watch them do it but still hate it. few months ago went hospital as i wasnt well and they took blood from the back of my hand as its easier to find a vain the nurse was a trainee, it hurt like hell, she did 3 attemps before getting a more experienced nurse. had some bruising for a few days but still hurt. i can understand that their still learning but they should have a senior nurse with them still to make sure they do it within the 1st or 2nd attempt or atleast knock us out first

I HAVE TO ADMIT THAT I DON'T REALLY LIKE THEM.

But they are a part of our health system at this time.

Be glad you didnt live about 200 years ago.
The needle had not been arround that long and god the needle was large.

I helped carry a combat vet marine to a bed after he passed out at the sight of the needle.

I hate needles. When my mom takes me to go get my shots for school, I'm like, "Uh, no." But she does it anyway, and I suffer the pain.

I'm brave about them but there's no excusing the fact that some hurt like a bitch! I had 4 lines in me at one time in hospital, one in my collarbone which was just weird and had like 3 little dangling things with coloured caps coming out of it...no idea what that was for but it really hurt. My clumsy little Bro also tripped on a line in my forearm and it ripped, slicing my arm open so the only vein left they could find was in my foot. Absolute agony, it hurt so fucking bad, there are so many nerves in the foot and I felt every one scream at me! I almost kicked the doctor in the face but some other ones were holding my leg down lol. I also remember going in for surgery and having a cannula put in, they sort of slide something in and slide another thing out and when they do that blood drips out and I lifted my head up to look at it and went "Eeeew!....Cool" and they were like "Don't look at it, put your head down!" :lol:

Tattoo needles are nothing, infact I quite enjoyed the sensation lol, it just feels like sunburn afterwards though.
