Re: Fear of Veins?

I had the most traumatic day.
I needed a blood test. I have no problem with blood and needles, but I have a fear of veins (it's hard to even type the word). The second I look at the tourniquet, i start to panic. As soon as the strap comes off, i'm fine.

Today the nurse messed up one arm and halfway through drawing the blood, she said she had to stop cause no more blood was coming out.

So I had to do the horrible process all over again.
My hands feel weird just typing this story.

I really don't understand this fear, but it makes me sick.
Has anyone managed to get over this??
