    Fear of passing out due to needles

    Hi,
    Over the past year I've formed a phobia of passing out and also needles, never passed out in my life and I'm covered in tattoos lol!
    Last year my dad ended up in a coma and I think that's what's triggered it, I've started to look at pictures of needles which is OK, but honstly I don't know what I'm scared more of, has anyone had this before and how do I get over this,

    Thankyou

    To be honest I just look away so I don't have to see them.

    Can't you just do that?

    Are you talking medical needles here, like for injections ? (not sewing needles or pine needles )

    I never ever had an issue with needles. I was getting allergy shots at 10 years old so.... That said, after my cancer treatment, I developed a visceral physical reaction to needles. Toward the end of cancer treatment, my veins were virtually non-existent and it often took 3-4+ jabs with a big needle to get the chemo meds into me. I truly don't fear them but my body reacts with... how can I put this... the willies?

    My wife hates needles and I've gotten puncture wounds and bruises from her digging her nails into me when they draw blood or give her shot

    Would you pass out though, even if you were the sort to pass out, if you don't see it even going into your skin ? I don't have a needle problem, but I thought it was looking at it piercing the skin that was the issue and if you didn't see that then it was not likely to happen. So, its not that you fear the needle, but fear fainting from seeing the needle ?

    Yes it's thought of seeing it I suppose, I want lip filler which I've had before but the thought of it now, I'm more fearful of passing out
