I'm afraid of needles. I can't get blood drawn and I refuse to donate. Shots are alright, piercings and tattoos are alright, but needles for taking blood... I can't even think of them without crunching together into a ball in fear. It goes back to when I was little and they thought I had ovarian cancer. They pricked me with needles constantly, doing blood tests and all of that. It got so bad that nurses had to hold me down because I was so sick of it. The last time I let them take my blood was when I was 10, and I had to bite my lip to stop myself from crying. I never had the cancer they thought I did, but I still refuse to take blood tests to this day. It's extremely foolish on my part, but I can't conquer that fear.
