I have food neophobia. Before last year I didn't even know what I had was given an actual term. Basically I have a limited diet due to a fear of new foods. I hated going out to dinner with family because they would always poke fun at me, which made it even worse for me. I'm slowly trying to try new foods and get other people to understand what my fear is. I'm not a picky eater, I'm not a vegetarian, and by no means am I VEGAN. I hate being put into those categories without even getting a chance to explain. It really pisses me off sometimes.
A fear of needles. It wasn't that pleasant to get my wisdom teeth removed, it caused more pain than it probably should have. Ever since, I panick when needles get close to me. And I can't stand blood sometimes. Stupid combination, while being a blood donor, lol. But when I have enough distraction and can look away from things when they insert the needle in a vein, I mostly can stand it.
Hemophobia. Well, I'm not sure if it's hemophobia or not. I had an accident when I was younger. I fell on a vacuum cleaner(one of them weird standup ones) and tore my whole left knee open. There was blood everywhere, and I've only recently started to get over it. Still, whenever I have to go to the quack to get blood drawn, I start shaking like a leaf. Don't get me wrong. I have no problem watching things on tv or playing bloody video games, nor do I have a problem with bandaging wounds. It's just, when blood is being forced out of my body via a foreign entity, I freeze. Maybe it changed over the years. That's possible too, right?
