I am going to the doctor's on the 27th and I am SUPER afraid of shots!!! Anyone got any tips? I know I'm gonna get a shot...and I don't think its helping. Please help!
Just remember when you are in the office, Don't Tense Up! It will hurt less if you don't tense p when you feel the needle go in. Another thing I do is not look at the needle going into my skin. If I concentrate on the voice of the person giving the shot and look at the wall and concentrate on an image on that wall. Those are 2 things that I do everytime I get a shot and it makes it not so bad. I have also noticed that when I don't tense up, there is not so much soreness associated with the shot.

I have never minded shots, needles don't bother me, I even donate blood a couple times a year, but my husband is deathly afraid of shots.
So every time he goes to get one takes an IB prophen before he goes in, it helps to keep down any pain, plus I think at this point it keeps him thinking
it doesn't hurt. I guess it never hurts to try it.

Don't look - relax, take deep breaths, talk to doctor or whoever else is in the room with you.......just don't think about it and you will barely know it's happened!

I think the anticipation is worse than the tiny little *bleep* itself!  Don't think about it; it only lasts a few seconds.

I hate shots/needles also but you are making too big of a deal out of it.  Don't think about it and don't worry about it.
It's worse in your head than the shot actually is.  I went to the dentist a couple of weeks ago and was so torn up about the shot in my mouth and he was giving it to me and I was so ready for it to hurt and he was almost finished before I realized it wasn't really even hurting.  lol

Take a deep breath, close your eyes (or look away) and wiggle your toes.

there are alternatives.
research natural remedies for your problem.
"native remedies" is one source; Dr Mercola is another source; the BIOMAT is healing and helping many people [some have given testimony about having stage 4 cancer and being healed with the BIOMAT. There is a chair/ couch size that won't break your budget.
no one is "forcing" you to get the shot.
you can decline.

I am terrified of getting shots, as well! It's not the pain I'm scared of, it's just the thought of a needle being stuck through my skin, then having something foreign put in me! Scary stuff! Ask for the baby needle and put on some music while they do it (if they'll let you get out your iPod, those nurses are usually pretty lenient, just so you don't get get nasty with them and stay polite!)
