Get over it and stop being dramatic.


Why would they get over it why are u trying to invalidate peoples feelings? the person who wrote the post said they feel nervous because their veins popped which is their bad experience!
I would say take deeps breaths, don’t look when the nurse is taking ur blood out and relax

A butterfly needle is less painful and better for small veins. You can also use numbing cream.
