How to get over fear of blood test?Watch
I have a blood test tomorrow I haven't had an injection or blood test in almost five years always hated them. I know the ordinary tips like "look away" but i'm really anxious and I just can't stand needles does anyone have any other tips that'll calm me down and ease the whole process.
Second, take someone with you to hold you down or something, my mom and one other hospital official always holds my hands down and I just close my eyes, there’s nothing you can do except put on a brave face and do it.
It’ll be an anxious ride to the hospital and boom 5mins later you’re fine.
I hate blood tests aswell and i know how nerve wrecking they can be. I know you said you've heard about dont look at the needle but its so true. I face the other way and never look at my arm while getting it done. Also, just remember it's just a small pinch and then it's over and done with. Take deep breaths and just keep that in ur head it'll be over before u know it. The nurse will probably have small talk with u which helps me because it distracts u. I hated blood tests more when i was younger and now they aren't as bad i dont like them but i dont get the same really bad anxiety over it. What is making u the most nervous about it?
The actual act of having it done doesnt hurt, the anxiety and fear in your head is what'll get you. Do something relaxing tonight and before you go and dont overthink it.
