Anxiety over drawing blood, feeling fainty. Suggestions?

I have to get my blood drawn today and I have great anxiety over blood. I faint in class and whenever someone tells a story about blood but I m sick and I don t have any other option. I m afraid that this will get stuck in my head and when I have anxiety I ll think about this and faint. I m also afraid that I m going to faint today. What can I do in order to avoid these things and have anxiety over this?mad

Welcome to HCM
What I get from your description you are sick and giving blood for investigation?
You should understand that it is very small amount taken from vein and there is nothing to worry .
If you become too much tense and over react other wise it is very simple and routinely done to small kids and childeren also.
You should be brave enought to face such things.
Think when some one donate blood to save life of others .
I do not know your age but just through out your fear and give blood for testing,nothing is going to happen.
Good Luck.
