Trypanophobia

Don’t Google for it. Because I have already done enough about it. Its nothing but a fear of which is something sharp, thin, long, pointy, horrible, dangerous, and painful….Oh !! OK I’ll cut the crap….Its the fear of injections and needles.

wpid-curiosity-30-common-phobias-pictures-2.jpgAnd yes!! I’m one of the people in the 20% in the world who suffers from the Trypanoshit. This is really bad really, really bad because I hate doctors who often taken their weapon of destruction and prick me with it.

Google says its so dangerous to be afraid of needles and syringes because people who suffers from Trypanophobia never goes to hospital and takes medicine for minor fever or common cold which leads to heavier risk later.

These people never donate blood because of the fear of needles. So they will often run on the opposite direction of the blood donation camp.

The sad truth is my cousin sister is a monster who has needles as her fingers. I had a chance to visit my cousin in her den. It was horrible nightmare. Antibiotic scent everywhere. White Mask and coats smiling and waving at me. I could only feel like the Grim reaper waving at me. So horrible.

She took me to the operation theater and showed me the world’s most wonderful thing i have ever seen. A new baby just came to this world. It was so soft and reddish. I was speechless. At that moment I lost all my fear and I was looking at the baby and I forgot to mention its a girl baby. She weighted 3 kg.

Healthy girl is ready to take her first blood test. Nurse took that sharp thingy and pricked her. I turned my head over and just realized these people here are not devils but they save lives. They help people to live a healthy life. At that moment I was so proud of my sister being a doctor who brings the babies to the world. From that moment they started to look like Angels who serves as the Gate Keepers of this world.

For the people reading this blog who are in that 20%, let me tell you a small story of U.S. President Richard Nixon was known to have a fear of hospitals after refusing to get a treatment for a blood clot in 1974 saying, “if I go into the hospital, I’ll never come out alive.”

[P.S] I’m still a Trypanophobia guy and I know its hard to recover from it. So you ask me ” Y the @$¥£ you are advising me not to be…??”
hmmm…the answer is giving advise for the people is the easiest job in the whole world and the most difficult job is following that same advise we give for others 😀
