Blood phobia?


I got a nasty cut on my finger while making a canvas. I could see the "meat" under the skin!
First I was all calm, went up to show my sister my cut as it looked ugly. Then went for the savlon and bandage, meanwhile climbing up the stairs I started to get dizzy. Reaching the bathroom I fell/sat on the floor as my legs couldn't hold me anymore, I didn't faint but all of a sudden my blood pressure got low.
You know how in cartoons when the character gets hit on the head and it start to see stars, birds etc. Well I thought I was seeing the twilight and two Adibas. Anyway suddenly I started sweating and I just couldn't take it anymore... "Cover the damn thing up!!!" Shouting impatiently to my father.

Anyway, after thinking I realised I have a classic case of blood phobia, but why all of a sudden? I didn't have problems before. I loved going to the nurses for blood test and then bragging about how much blood they took from me. And now I'm all of a sudden blood phobic? And I thought I knew myself enough...

while we were having our medical test after BUET admission test , one of our friend who was afraid of blood looked at the other side while his blood had been taken. But unfortunately the direction where he was looking was also occupied for taking blood samples and seeing it he fainted..

It was that much blood?! Wow. Blood is scary...

I'm sad to hear that you don't see birdies going around your head. I think that would've been much more interesting. Or maybe different people see different things?! I wonder what I would see...

Today is August 31 - International Blog Day. 'Blog Day' was initiated with the belief that bloggers should have one day which will be dedicated to know about other bloggers, preferably from other countries or areas of interests. So, celebrate this day via recommending about five other weblogs to your blog visitors in order to help in spreading new ideas, cultures and opinions.

Thanks...
