I am totally comfortable in social situations when I’m up on the stage in front of people wether it’s karaoke singing, playing guitar n’ singing songs & nude modeling for adult life drawing art classes. But as soon as I go to my doctor for a physical checkup I become a frightened child. My blood pressure goes up, anxiety & weakness takes over. But the worst part of all is having bloodwork done & going into a severe panic attack because of needle phobia. I’m slowly overcoming this fear & learning how to relax while it’s being done because giving a blood sample as part of a checkup is necessary.
