Hi there. I'm currently awaiting results to prove I'm t1.5 not T2 as I've been treated for for 3 years (don't get me started on why it's taken so long!!!) Has anyone else here suffered with a fear of needles? If so how do you manage it or what did you do to overcome it? I litterly break down every time I have my bloods done. I can't look and I need the nurses to talk rubbish to me while they do their thing. I hate the thought of anything under my skin - which also contributes to compulsive skin picking. I've had one session of hypnosis and have been told I will need two more. I'm worried might not work though. If not I don't live near anyone I could ask to help me on a daily basis. I would have to give up my job and move to be near my closest friend (no family). One one hand I'm desperate to get insulin but on the other i know at the moment I won't be able to deliver it.
