There is only one thing that scares me more than bears...

And that is needles.

Case in point: this morning, having blood drawn (for the first time in all my 20 years.)

Blacked out when she stuck me with the needle... woke up later laying on a table with 3 people standing over me and someone holding my feet up. And I'm still light-headed.

Haha, I love this. (And, yes, I was updating my google Reader, which means that, INdeed, I'm going through your old blog posts. You make me chuckle.)

I actually get the same way. Completely loopy when I get shots, even small ones that only take a second. One doctor told me that the reaction (vasovagal!) happens when one tries to stay really calm during the process... he recommended SCREAMING in the doctor's office. Crying would be the best, he told me!! Wtf? ...want to try it sometime?
