Big baby.... IVs aren't bad unless they are in your neck or a bone. Then yeah, it's bad.

O, I know, I just don't like needles, I guess. When I had to get my palm stitched up a coupla years ago (and my chin a coupla years before that), I disliked the needle puncture than the burning of the (insert name of drug I've forgotten here).

Even in movies, I've got no problem with violence & most torture, but for some reason it's things like needles/scalples moving/cutting slowly that gives me the willies.

I understand. I had a mole removed a few years ago with lidocaine. I couldn't feel a thing but seeing the diamond shaped cut in my skin, which was tiny, maybe the size of a pencil eraser, made me very ill. I couldn't take watching that or the stitches. I can watch and assist on someone else all day long, but watching myself get cut on is awful!
