Blenophobia--Whoops!

Postby lyndacarol » Wed Apr 11, 2007 7:09 pm

I accidentally hijacked the previous thread with this posting--hit the wrong button. Please forgive me, I intended a new topic:


After looking through the forums without finding the perfect fit, I am putting this new (to me, anyway) vocabulary word here. The subject affects the daily life of so many of us!

From a recent AARP publication came this information:

20 million Americans have blenophobia--or fear of needles--according to a recent study.

Shall we make "blenophobia" the "word of the day?"

when i was a kid i had to go for hypnotherapy because of my blenophobic issues! i have to get so many needles now for all my bloodwork that i'm kind of over it. but there was NO WAY i was going to take medication that involved injecting myself every other day!
