Not scared of blood.. But why does this happen Watch

    Bit of a weird one, but i'm gonna put this on here incase anyone has the same thing..

    I'm not scared of blood, its not something that I am fearful of, but when I get a cut, no matter how small it is, a few minutes later I will feel my heart racing, light headed and sometimes feel sick and will need to chill out for 10 minutes or so.

    I rarely do get cuts and stuff, maybe only a couple of times a year. I find it really weird and I would like to know if anyone has the same thing?

    I get this too, i never used to think i hated blood and the idea certainly doesn't disturb me when i think about it.
    But a few months ago i went to give blood, and felt faint straight away. Thought that it was just cuz i was too light so i thought nothing of it.
    I then got my belly button pierced, and anyone who's had it done knows that they usually bleed a lot. Took my plaster off, saw the blood any nearly passed out, took a good 15 mins to pass haha.
    I think maybe we just get more bothered about it than we realise!!

    The weirdest thing is that the last two times when i have had to go for a blood test i have fainted without even looking at the blood or the needle and i have no idea why. Its not the blood im scared of so i don't know why it happens. :confused:

    It depends on the person and how much you usually bleed when you get a cut i think

    why do you say you arent scared of blood?
    maybe you are fine with blood in a sterile way (as in, in a test tube out of context). Seeing a human bleedy, either you or another, is entirely different.

    That's strange, I gave blood a few years ago and near the end I very nearly passed out, and thinking about it, I never used to get this faint feeling when I have a cut before I gave blood. Maybe it was that what set it off, hmm confusing!
