Every time I undergo venipuncture I also go out cold. It's highly frustrating and the anxiety it causes it me when I go to the doctor only further ensures that it will happen again. It's especially frustrating because everytime it happens the doctors want me to go get my heart checked out and everytime my heart is fine. I too consider myself to be a strong minded person. I can deal with all sorts of other situations and events that are far more painful, difficult, disgusting etc.than venipuncture, and yet I can't seem to break the streak. If you've found some higher wisdom that has enabled you to overcome our common obstacle, please enlighten me.
