    I grew up in a rural area, and got scrapes and bruises all the time as a kid, so I've never been scared during blood tests. I was a bit anxious before my first blood test, because I'd heard from others about how horrible it is. But once I actually got in there and had a needle jammed into my arm, I wasn't really bothered.

    Humans have a fair few litres of blood flowing in our veins. Trust me, losing a little bit of it to a needle isn't going to kill you.

    I've always hated the dentist though, because having a hoover stuck into your mouth is not at all pleasant.(they use a vacuum tool to suck all the excess saliva out of your mouth before putting a filling in)

    It's fine. If you just let me drink all your blood now, you'll never have to take a blood test again

    No. I've had too many of them to care anymore! Of course, I don't like them but I'm not completely bothered by them either way.

    Take someone with you during your blood test and talk to them.
    Also make sure you breathe otherwise you'll end up fainting.

    Every time I go for a blood test I am confident that I will ask one question: What happens to my blood after it has been tested? I get soo scared-I just walk out the room the second the needle is out of me!
