Well, looks like you can either man up and do it anyway or not get the job. Phobias are awful, but they can be overcome.

You literally cannot deal with needles?


I know, they're such cunts. I always offer to meet them halfway and they always just give me a blank stare

How old are you? Because you must have had an immunisation recently if you're anywhere between 14 and mid twenties.

Look, the fact is that there is going to be multiple times in your life where you will need to have either a vaccine or a blood test so you need to address the phobia. It's a common phobia that your GP or a therapist will very easily be able to cure (so long as it isn't rooted in some obscure, aggressive childhood experience). Either go to one of them and discuss it, or just try to face up to it. If you keep running away from it then you'll just continue to build on your phobia.

Go get a bunch of tattoos, after awhile you won't even notice needles anymore. Or just suck it up because they don't even hurt.

I'm 22. And being told that I'm being a wimp doesn't help. In reality, I'm not. This is literally the only fear I have, but it's really bad.

That isn't gonna happen either. The knowledge of it creeps me out.

Alright, let's make this as simple as it can get -

Either you need the money and get the shot to have a green-light for your physical, or you don't, and you don't need the money that badly.

Maybe I'm being abrupt here, but I never had the luxury. If I didn't pay my share, the bills didn't get paid and we didn't have a place to live. Either do it or don't. There's no magic trick.

Don't mind people calling you names because of that, it's a phobia so it's not about simply manning up. Really, nurses aren't demons, usually at least. If you express your fear of needles beforehand, they will probably find another way. Like you said, you could simply cut yourself with any sharp object you can find in the room

Thanks Niamorg. Maybe that's the way forward. I'll just have to hope they don't call security!

But for real, you need to stop being such a baby and get the shot if you really want the job. There's nothing to be scared of.

It's okay to have a phobia, but everyone has to face their fears once in a while. Stop saying you're not a wuss aside from this and just let this happen, because we don't believe you.

Ignore the people saying you're a wimp.

And so you must have had a TB jab in the last six or so years? No?

Trust me, go to your GP or get your local doctors to put you in touch with a therapist who can help you deal with it.

Yeah, that isn't going to happen. If you cut yourself the blood is mixed heavily with a vast array of cellular fluids from within the cells you just destroyed, and thus it is fairly useless for a basic blood test.

Sure you are, just like I'm a wimp every time I'm in the vicinity of a spider. Admit to being a wimp and all of this will be easier my friend.

There are a few different ways to deal with this. Some therapists will do a tough love approach where they will expose you to needles and after enough exposure, your body will realize that it hasn't been harmed and you'll feel more comfortable with them. Others go from a pure logic approach. They'll ask you why you're afraid of needles, and they'll just reason you through it.

I'm not a therapist myself, but that's what I know about. I think the important thing to do right now for you is to identify why you're so scared of needles, and then try to reason with yourself, so that you're not afraid. If you want someone to reason with you, you can PM me. It might not be overly effective and you might just have to bite the bullet and force yourself to go, but it's a step forward.

Cheers Kratos. I have no idea why they scare me tbh, but it's severe. Logic is all very well (and logically speaking this is ridiculous), but that doesn't help me unfortunately. I wish it did.
