Blood Fear and My Birthday Blood Donation

Recently, I’ve been working with a fair few people who struggle with a blood fear. That might be blood itself, having a blood test, needles and injections or even all medically related things.

Last week I celebrated my birthday and I took some time to pop along and make my latest blood donation. As it was my birthday the staff very kindly gave me a card and offered me extra snacks after my blood donation!

I can well remember my first blood donation a few years ago. I was a bit hyped up about it beforehand. I’m ok with blood, needles and injections and the like but there was still a bit of anticipation about what was going to happen and how I would feel afterwards. After all, the first time you do these sort of things there is a big element of the unknown about what is going to happen. These days it’s more in, have a bit of a chat with the staff, bosh out a pint of the red stuff, eat a snack and then back home (feeling like a hero!). This latest experience was so relaxing I felt like I could have had a little sleep whilst donating. I’d have happily sat there and relaxed for a lot longer than they let me!

I help a lot of people to overcome their fear of blood and their anxiety around needles, injections and medical type things. Sometimes even something on TV or a mention of these things can be enough to start the anxiety. Maybe you avoid these things because of your fear. Yet at some point you know that, for your own health and well-being, you are likely to need a blood test or something similar. You can put it off yet at some point it is pretty likely to become necessary.

Instead of that anxiety, fear and dread, it is very possible to have a blood test (or even give blood) whilst feeling calm, comfortable and in control.

And here I am donating my latest pint last week (thanks to the nurse who took the picture after seeing me struggle to take a one handed selfie!):

Do you have a fear of giving blood? Hypnotherapy Ely and Newmarket

Whether you absolutely have to have blood tests for your health, or you just want to be calmer around the whole thing to know that you could, it is very possible to overcome your fear.

For whatever reason your fear started, you can turn it from something perceived as negative into the actual positive and helpful thing that it is. You’ll then be able to relax about the possibility of an injection or blood test popping up on TV or when talking to someone. You’ll be more relaxed about visiting people in hospital or being in locations where there may be people getting injections and blood tests. And whether it’s a one off blood test, or something you need to do more regularly, you’ll be able to go through each occasion calmly, confidently and successfully.

To your health and happiness,
