I had posted a few days ago that I have not yet gone to get all my required vaccinations for our trip to Thailand in 76 days. I took the plunge and called today for an appointment. I am praying for cures to all diseases between now and January 28 when I have to go and get 6 (yes that is SIX) shots and a prescription for Malaria pills. Oh and did I mention that when I return I have to get 2 more shots.
What is the big deal you may ask? So what. It's just a few shots. Ummm, yeah. See I am terrified, and I mean TERRIFIED of needles. I am the person who opted for natural childbirth because of my fear of needles. I have passed out when my kids have gotten shots of various natures. I am almost 6 years past due for my tetanus booster due to my fear of needles. I see a needle and out I go. Heck I almost passed out when I drove my neighbor to take her daughter to get her shots. I hate hate hate needles.
Anyone free Monday, January 28 at 9 am? I will need someone to pick my body up off the floor. Of course that is after they drag me in there to begin with. Do you think they give almost 33-year-old's stickers and suckers when they are finished? I sure hope so. Maybe if I am really nice and don't cry they will upgrade to a shot of tequila. Or a nice pair of gold cufflinks to give Matt for V-day.
