afraid of blood

by Erin
(United States)

i used to be so afraid of blood when i was little. i couldn't even hear the word blood without freaking out. ive never fainted but ive alswys gottn very very jittery and very anxious around blood.

the strange this is that im dying to become a doctor. even when i was much worse, i would always play with my barbie doctor kit and treat my teddy bears for bellyaches and heart attacks.

now i watch the discovery health channel religously and envy thse who can tackle a gunshot wound with ease.

i can watch open heart surgery on tv, but in real life, i still get very anxious when my biology teacher starts talking about the blood stream.

as you can tell, im a very messed up person and im scowering the internet looking for help.
