Today, I am serious contemplating what I am going to do, am I going to get the needed blood work done or not. Last Dr visit I received a finger wagging for not getting this blood test done, a month or two ago. Yeah, I know it is important. But dagnabbit, I just about have an actual anxiety attack to getting up the nerve to go (believe me, I have had a few and I know all about how it feels to have one). Okay, the last time I tried to do a blood test, my anxiety level was over the top and I could not do it. I could not tell if I was having an asthma issue, anxiety attack, or a little of both. I was in the chair at the time and ask if I could go back to the waiting room to calm down. Sadly, I just could not take it and left. I felt like such a dumb-ass and failure. Needless to say, I was totally embarrassed by my irrational behavior in front of the nurse. I am sure this was not her first but I still hate the way I get about this.
Do I want to get the Blood work done? Heck yes I do. They actually have a freaking name for this called Belonephobia. I guess I am not alone. Frankly, I do not know what to do. I want show the Dr that I am taking charge of my health by doing everything he says, but I am such a freak with this blood work stuff. Plus, I want to get a flu shot too, but I have been freaking out about that too.
What in the world am I going to do?
