Here’s a fact about me. I used to have a phobia of blood and needles (hemophobia and trypanophobia to be precise.) I’ve been through therapy, but till this day I still get sickie just thinking about it and have to revert to my ritual of flicking my fingers, pacing around the room and rubbing my thighs to feel right again 😬. D1 is due to have a vaccination next week and If she’s anything like her mama, there’s going to be some serious tears, a possible outbreak of violence and general mass hysteria. It’s so horrible for the little ones and I can’t help but feel guilty that she’s so blissfully unaware of the giant needle that awaits her 🙀. It can be such a traumatic experience for both the parent and child but there is hope people!!! I recently came across VR Vaccine - a virtual reality app designed to help children overcome the fear and pain of injections by transporting them into a virtual superhero experience. The app is crafted in such a way that what they experience in the virtual world is simultaneously matched step by step by a nurse in real world Clever no?! Using something like this would make the whole experience that little bit easier reducing pain, fear and anxiety all round. 🙌
It’s not yet rolled out in the UK anyway, so I’m still going to have to rely upon hand holding and chocolate raisins... that’s for me of course D1 will be fine I’m sure! .
