Post 198 Doctor and my Physical

Oct 24 8:49 pm, Yesterday I went to the Doctor for my physical which was routine. I had to get my blood work done today and she is also scheduling me for a biopsy in a couple of weeks to check out a blemish that I have had for years. She’s concerned as I had previously mentioned that a sister and brother have melanoma.

The doctor gave me a tetanus shot yesterday and I was surprised that I had a fear of the needle and it did hurt when she “pricked” me. Today I went to do the blood work and again the fear came up. I stated my fear and the young woman was very reassuring and gentle. I never even felt the needle enter my arm and it was only when she was preparing to take a second vile, that I noticed that the needle was already in my arm.
