2. Fear of Rejection, Fear of Injection

I wanted to do something special today. I didn’t want it to be another Single Awareness Day. I spent the afternoon of Valentine’s Day 2014 with friends in SocSci conference room lining up to donate blood. The thing is, I fear the sight of blood and I fear injections. The process of blood donation includes a pre-test that they do to check if you are an eligible donor — the fear of rejection (#feels #hugot).

I could not explain how scared I was when it was my turn to be tested. I hate even the slightest prick on my fingertip. But I thank God for my supportive friends who were there — Dale (the one who encouraged me to donate), Patricia, Clarisse and Krystal. It was the first time I donated blood and I don’t think it would be my last.

A happy day spent with friends and conquering my fears 🙂

How about you? How was your Valentine’s Day?

P.S. Thanks to the nurse who kept reassuring me that everything would be fine.

    • Hahaha! I swear I was so scared. Even my mom was surprised I was able to do it. 🙂 It didn’t hurt that much naman. Kaya yan! 🙂 Just have friends with you. 😉

      P.S. I miss you

      • Yeah, kailangan lang talaga may kasama. The other day we learned the characters for blood transfusion. I was semi-hyperventilating. LOL.

        I miss you too, Aich! Ano na plans mo after graduation? Mag-apply ka for jobs dito para magkita tayo. 🙂

      • Nice. I’m am not sure if I’ll be staying in Japan forever, but I’d like to try working here. I might work as an English teacher for a while, so I can get a working visa (already got a job offer). That way, I could stay here, work on my Japanese, build connections, and hopefully, find employment in a design/illustration/gaming company.

        But I have to be honest I am very confused with my life right now. -_-;
