Shots vs Disease (possibility!)

I’m afraid of needles. Yes. Yes, I am. I’m cool with donating blood and blood work, but I can’t watch that puppy go in, not yet. Once the needle has been in my arm for a few minutes I’ll look over and see what’s going on, but I always turn away.

I just don’t really like it. The pinch, the numbing, the little bit of pain, yes, I’m a wuss! But that’s how I feel!!

This is me, on the inside of course. I'm an adult and don't make scenes in public.

Last week, while planning my trip, my boyfriend reminded me that I should probably get my shots soon. I was like, “um- WHAT?!!?” And then he laughingly explained all the diseases I could potentially come across and how preparedness never hurt NO BODY.

You guys, I hate shots! So much so that for the first minute I considered not going to Asia because I didn’t want to get the shots. Then rationale kicked in. Of course there are diseases all over the world; there is no reason why I shouldn’t be pre-cautious. Am I going to live my life in fear of a couple of needles (yes?!).

I’m cringing as I write this!

I’m sure I’ll eventually get the shots. I must. I will..!?

Have you been to Asia? Are you uncomfortable with shots? How did you overcome this silly-ness?

Look at this kid, he's a champ!

XO and lots of cringing
