WOW..Kim...You sound EXACTLY like me...other than I am 56...I used to faint in church when I was a kid all the time and the blood tests~ UGH!! The strange thing is that it doesn't hurt me & I simply cannot control the passing out. Sometimes when I pass out I get sweaty & clammy & cold & have to go to the bathroom all at one time...Once I even got sent to the hospital...GREAT IDEA...send a person who can't take needles to the hospital so they can put more of them in you :( I am really amazed by how many people suffer from this. I thought I was all alone with this.
