Okay so ever since I was a little girl I have hated shots.... I mean HATED shots! One time it took my mom and four nurses to hold me down just to get one shot! So this week we found out that we have a baby in our school who has whooping cough! So we where all told as teachers to go get a shot. So for the last day and a half I have been saying I am not going to go get a shot I hate them and I think they are silly! Until one of my own students came in today and his mother told me that he had been tested! So I decided to go get it done! I went with two of my coworkers during nap and I was really freaking out! I seriously can not remember the last time I had to get a shot all I remember is that my dad took me and i had to be at least in middle school and I still sat on his lap and blew on a feather. lol Okay so back to today so we walk into san juan basin health and I am filling out paper work and my hands are dripping with sweat ... and I can feel the sweat start to drip from my forehead. So we where all called back together and I told Peggy one of my co teachers that I needed to hold her hand while I got the shot and she was all okay that is fine! So he did me first and when he came over I closed my eyes as tight as I could and I held her hand as tight as I could and by the time I was done thinking about those two things it was over. Really that was it! I was freaking out about nothing! And I always wondered why my dad would always tell me that he would never be in the delivery room with me! lol Man if a shot was that easy I bet child birth will be a breeze lol!
