Especially with the thought of having to get blood taken. Anyone else sh!t scared of it? How do you overcome it?
I've had ongoing knee issues for a few years and have been managing it quite well with simple exercises and keeping away from the running which is hard.
For about a week now I've had really bad knee pain in my right knee so decided to take myself off to the doc for some pain killers or something.
While in there he said he wanted to get someone to take blood, straight away I was in the starting blocks to get on my toes out of there but I told him no way! He got a bit funny but I explained that I'm scared whitless of needles especially the ones that take blood and where they stick them.
I asked the doc if there any ways of doing it without me knowing I.e. knock me out with gas or something but I just got chinned off. I think I upset him!
Part of me thinks I should have my blood taken but with my mindset towards needles it's not something I can physically do. What are my options if there are any.
