I hate how scared I am of the vaccine I’ve gotten good advice and talked with people but still can’t go through with it. I don’t believe that nothing bad will happen.

I was scared too, Mick. There's a lot of misinformation out there unfortunately. I had the oxford astrazeneca vaccine and the person administering it was really helpful and reassuring. Are you able to talk to a professional about your concerns?

I have talked to my doctor and he talked to me about my conerns and I have talked to others about them as well but for some reason everytime I get the courage to do it I back out when it’s time to get it. I see everybody around me being getting it and being protected and it just isn’t a good feeling when I don’t know if I’m ever going to be as brave to do so. I have major health anxiety so I’m worried about allergic reactions and fainting and at the time of getting it done if I will not be able to tell the difference between my normal anxiety or if something is truly wrong. My head just plays games with me all the time.

That sounds difficult. Would you be able to have someone go with you to support you before and after? I was worried about having a panic attack so my dad came with me and I was really grateful. Have a little safety plan in place perhaps ☺️

I have very supportive people that are willing to go with me but for some reason I still can’t get out of my head about things. The ingredients in the vaccine seem safe but I can’t get all of the things that could possibly go wrong to go away.

I wish there were more places that you didn’t have to have appointments because making the appointment gives me time to panic about it instead of just going when I am ready to do it
