Oh no!  Glad you’re okay though!

I donated blood one morning at a drive at work and then had my annual OBGYN appointment that afternoon.  At the OBGYN appointment, I almost passed out when I stood up after the exam (got really light-headed and dizzy and laid myself right back  down).  I ended up being there an extra 45 minutes or so, just laying in the exam room, so they could make sure I was okay.

I’ve given blood 3 times.  Twice I have passed out and additional time (before getting anywhere near a needle) I burst into tears. I know your pain.

Sometimes blood gets me, and sometimes it doesn’t. I did fine getting blood drawn a few months ago, but when I cut my finger on a can and it started bleeding a couple weeks ago… down I went!

I’m sorry to hear your flu shot didn’t go well; at least it’s over now. I’d rather have your experience than get the flu, anyway! 🙂

It’s very common. 

I use use to faint when I’d get my blood drawn. I think I finally go over it but I still get nervous.
