You should just draw your own blood, Keith. Problem solved! :)

That's interesting that looking at the needle helps you. I find that looking the other way is much better for me, although I do tense up when they're about to harpoon me. Once the needle's in, though, I'm pretty calm. And really, the actual stick is rarely more than a tiny pinch, I just don't like the IDEA that I'm getting jabbed with an extremely sharp object. Luckily I have some sexy veins! You could find my veins while blindfolded at night, so there only ever is one small jab.

Tom, do you think it would help if you looked the other way? Also, you could talk to the folks at the blood draw and let them know your concern. Maybe you could request someone with a lot of experience, which might alleviate some anxiety. How are your veins? Have you had a bad experience like Keith?
