The thing is, though, I can't stand needles. I know it's irrational. And even more irrational is that I know I can cope with an injection in to the upper arm (so I think I'll be okay for my two vaccination shots), but if it's anything to do with needles in to veins... no. Just no. Even the thought of it is making me shudder an wince.
It is irrational.
It is illogical.
But it's just the way it is, and no matter how much I try not to have a complete fear of a needle going in to a vein it persists.
There must be a way to get over this irrational fear, but I don't know what it might be. I just hope it doesn't get to a crisis point at some point later in life. There must be a way.
