Isn’t it a little barbaric and old fashioned? I mean, aren’t we in an enlightened age? We can put a man on the moon (well, they said we did) and we can’t figure out a better way to get vaccines and medicines in than to take a long, sharp, nasty needle and jab it into our skin about a foot deep. Well, not a foot, but it might as well be.
I got my Covid shots but man it scared me half to death.
And why do they think showing people getting a needle stuck an inch into their arm is going to make us excited to get our vaccine? Television news: Quit it. Stop it right now.
Yuck! I’d almost rather see anything but needles going into people’s arms.
I’m phobic about needles going into me whether they’re putting something in or sucking something out, as in my blood.
Guns don’t make me any more nervous than needles. Such nasty little things. My only fear before the few surgeries I’ve had was about that IV needle. Cut on me. I don’t care. But to do you have to jab me in the arm, or God help me, the hand first? Can you use some ether or something I can inhale before you stick me with a hollow jabber designed to put stuff in my blood vein? Damn, ya’ll.
I let my teeth get in terrible shape until I found a dentist that would put me to sleep to do the work. Needles in my gums? Who the hell can even stand that idea? It’s much scarier than Freddy Friggin’ Kruger.
Why can’t we do like Doc McCoy in Star Trek. Just put a little thingamajig on our skin and poof, the medicine is in there without having to be shot in by a hollow needle buried in our flesh. And it doesn’t hurt a bit.
It seems to me shots are so old school. Surely they can come up with a better way! I still remember the horror of holding my babies and letting people sink needles into their baby skin. Yech! They trust me and yet I had to sit there and hold their precious little bodies while they were jabbed with needles. Surely we are past this as a society.
I should start a petition demanding the medical profession and the scientists behind it find a better way to put medicine in one’s body than jabbing a needle an inch or two deep. It’s horrifying and it’s been going on for more than 150 years. Of course, before that, they used little hollow tubes they poured into a hole they had previously made in your skin. Shit. That doesn’t sound any better (or much worse) than stabbing me with a sharp metal object and sticking it an inch into me! In-fucking-vasive.
Well, ok, not everybody thinks it’s such a big deal. But me. I worried for days before each Covid vaccine. And then I have to admit it didn’t hurt that bad. But the idea hurt me for days and days. And the TV news helped panic me by showing people getting needles stuck in their arms every time I turned it on. It’s the idea of being stabbed with anything, never mind that it’s a thin needle — it’s still stabbing. To me.
So, let’s get with it like ole Doc McCoy in Star Trek. No shots needed — just teleport that medicine in there somehow or other. I’m not interested in the details, but come on, get with it.
This shot thing has been going on long enough. And for Pete’s sake, stop showing me needles going into people’s arms, it makes me eat too much Clonazepam. If we were meant to have needles stuck in us there would be a little pre-drilled hole!
Speaking of a hole, maybe it would work to pour it into my navel and then I would stay very still and let it soak in? Nah? What about the outies of the world? Well, the world is full of geniuses — maybe some of them could find a better way
The barbaric practice of jabbing people, even babies, with needles needs to go the way of putting leeches on people to suck their blood!
