I don't know how I was when I was a kid, but needles don't trouble me at all these days.
Hepatitis vaccines? No problem. Give blood? Sure. Tetanus shots? Fine.
I added acupuncture to the list today, and it was no big deal. I didn't have a clue what to expect, so I don't know what is typical.
Besides a few needles here and there, I got to participate in resistance tests (to find out what all is catawampus), some adjustments here and there, a list of foods to eat and foods to avoid. Most of what is on the OK list and what's prohibited will not surprise you.
Best of all, I got instructions to push a little bit in the pool, which I've been itching to do.
