Angry Help! What do I do? :'(

I suffer from axniety and sometimes it gets the better of me. Like today. My grade had to have shots, and I'm scared of them. Then my anxiety kicked in and I refused it. They said they would call my parents to let them know I refused it and to reschedule for me to get it. But how am I suppoted to tell them that I refused it? I mean I can't hide from it but I'm really scared of shots. :/I don't know what to do.

Aw, ((hugs))

I am in the same situation you are. I am incredibly afraid of needles as well. Not going to get much into it...

I would tell your parents what happened. Be honest. And let them know you are scared of needles--no harm in telling them yeah? They are your parents after all.

-Would you be more comfortable lying down? That is what I like to do, LOL
-As well, maybe bring stuffie along? I like to bring my Mickey Mouse stuffie when I do it.
-I also like to read a book when they do it--takes my mind off of it.
-As well, don't forget to wiggle your toes!
-You can also take a deep breath and count to five.
-And if you really do prefer taking it privately, next time, perhaps let the nurse know?

((hugs))
Best of luck!

I'm not so much afraid of needles but I don't Really like to get shots ( I hate the iv's ) I useually bring a stuffed animal or a puppet ( that what I did the last time ) It helps umm, don't look at it, close your eyes really tight. Lol I know I wasn't much help .

It's okay to tell your parents you had an anxiety attack. Hmm, is your anxiety so bad that you need medication for it (or are you on medication)? Maybe talk to your parents about that if you feel that's what you think would help.
Just remember, shots are very important to get to keep you healthy. Sure, they're not the most pleasant thing in the world, but it's better than getting sick, right? maybe looking away while you get the shot would help, or maybe sitting in a specific position. You could always hold/squeeze someone's hand when you get the shot, I find this very helpful.

Aw, I'm sorry. Everyone's tips are very good though. May I ask what the shot is for?

the advice given so far is great! If you're scared of needles, you could maybe ask if there was another way to get the vaccine. I know when I got my vaccination to prevent getting swine flu, there was also an option for a nasal spray. You could maybe see if that's offered for whatever shot your grade was getting.

Aw, i'm sorry ):
I cant really help you. I get two shots every two weeks, so i'm used to it.
Try everyone else's advice. Also, what I do, (not sure if this is ok though) is I ice my arms before and after the shot. It helps a lot.

Char, it's okay. Tell your parents. I didn't get the shots either when they came to my school, because I knew if I did I'd have a panic attack (I would think it could make me sick). If it's a shot you really need, then I'd suggest doing it at your doctor's. It's someone you know in a much more relaxed environment (quiet office > school gym with a bunch of kids. lol). But you never know, you might not need it!
