    I have to get my blood drawn every year and inject myself with a meir every 3 months... I always think I'm gonna pass out when I do

    oh man i used to deal with this all the time too, i get my blood drawn quite frequently so i think the exposure is what helped me the most. one time the guy put on the simpsons intro for me and he was finished before that was done and told me just about every blood drawing takes about that much time and for some reason that really helped me calm down about it. i still get anxious but i can calm down faster and easier than before by reminding myself ive done it before i can do it again it doesnt really take that long

      Im going to have to get it drawn more because of thyroid issues i suppose but it scares me alot
