I hate them. I have been self injecting weekly for 10 years and still can't get used to it. I think it is just natural to hate them.

I do not like shots, but I'm pretty much not afraid of them. There is a slight fear when I know it's going to stick in me, but it's only a brief period. I never seem to stare away, but I don't think it would do be any good.

shots don't bother me .. as long as I don't look .. don't need to know when it's coming and tense up .. just stick me !!

I like it better if they tell me first.  And I have noticed that a shot from a man hurts less than a shot from a woman.  Maybe it's because I am female and the man is trying to be easier and not hurt me as bad. lol

As far as shots go I can take them or leave them but the person that said about getting them in the upper gum was totally right  they hurt like heck

Never liked them and never will. They've become more tolerable over the years, but still don't like them. I always get nervous for some reason even though I know what's coming.

I am not afraid of getting shots, because my dad helped me get over that fear, when I was young.

I just find your wording a little funny to me.  I know some people are afraid of shots, but that has never been the case for me as long as I can remember.

Not afraid of them, just do not like that sick but it's usually so fast, you blink and then it's over; unfortunately they are sometimes a necessary part of  staying well.

it depends on the shot.a flu shot dosen't bother me. I'm not bothered by the pain.
right now I am dealing with hives that are auto ammune waiting for an injection to be approved by insurance.
all though I want the shot because current medication isn't working concerned about possible reation or that fact that it maynot work. :rose: :rose: :peace: :wave:

Before my son was born, I hated needles.  While pregnant with him, I got so many shots that I got to the point that I would just sit and watch them give the shots to me.  Needles don't bother me much anymore.

I'm ok with getting shots. But I can't look it and try to thinking of something else to distract me.

Every time I look at this post topic, I think it's about drinking.  :monkey:

Then when I check it out, it's about injections with needles. You'd think I'd remember.  :silly:

Ever since my youngest son was diagnosed with asthma, he has no option but to have the needle vaccine rather than the nasal mist which all the other kids at school have. I would have preferred him to get the nasal mist because it is so easy however apparently the nasal mist can trigger an asthma attack. So all my family members now get the needle vaccine to show our support for all asthmatics!
