Blood draw anxiety: It is perfectly normal to not want people to chase after you with sharp objects. It would seem you have a rather robust vagal and anxiety response. The best advise is to arrive early, ask to be placed in a relaxing room lying down and do deep breathing exercises. During blood draw remain lying down and look away or close eyes. Stay lying down for several minutes after. Hydrate well beforehand
