First and foremost, let me confess that I am one of those people who are absolutely TERRIFIED of needles since I was little. I developed such phobia for needles, that I spend my entire childhood and teenage years fainting every time I had to get a blood test. I once had a mole removed on my inner thigh -they had to inject it with something to freeze it first(?)- and I didn’t faint once, or twice, but three times… I laugh now but it was incredibly embarrassing, I still remember my poor mom trying to pick me up from the floor constantly (and I am 180cm, so that wasn’t an wast task hahaha).¬†Fast-forward a few years and I am still not a fan of needles, but I have learnt to deal with them.

The reason why I shared this story is because I know what you are thinking; “Why on earth would I put needles in my face?!” and I get that, the term itself sounds cary AF but believe me, it if was as scary as it sounds, I probably would have 1) not done it or 2) passed out. seemore
