I have the same problems, everyone thinks I'm joking and once I accidentally touched my wrist and I started quivering and crying and my friends thought it was a joke. I also have a huge fear of blood so I can't even be in health class (I'm 15) because I have a panic attack when they mention blood and wrists. It's really starting to get to my grades.

Hello I am Ashton Lange and i have posted one of these, (dribbles) as well. I wanted to let you know that I suffer from this phobia as well. I, unlike you, am not sure where this stemmed from. I would like to email you more about it. I do know that i have had people make it worse by also making jokes and intentionally making wrist slitting comments or pretending to do so themselves. To be completely honest it makes me sick, queasy, i lose the ability to move or use my whole arm. people make jokes specifically my girlfriend and i hate that it is not took seriously. Oh and watching a movie? forget it lol. I also have a fear of people touching or being around my neck. so horror movies for me are extremely painful to watch, yet i watch 3-4 a week. Im sorry if i wasted your time it just helps me to talk about it.
Thanks for reading.

I'm not actually joking, you literally just told my life story! These boys found out my phobia from my cousin in year 8 & since then everyone comes up to me & shows their wrists, their veins, & I would turn away and scream, once my friends thought it would be funny if as a joke they both touched my wrist at the same time...I started to cry, it wasn't funny, & my mum just thinks its ridiculous :( I have the phobia because when I was little, my grandpa was doing up the car window & my wrist got stuck, & it was so painful!
