Besides being a bit emetophobic, I also freak out If I see blood. I`m ok with movies like Dracula & frankenstein, as the gore doesn`t seem all that real, but if someone`s shot in a movie, I always go and make some tea or something if Iv`e seen it before & I know what`s coming, or fast forward & close my eyes if it`s a recording. I always look away when I`m having blood drawn, & if I see someone hurt, it`s all I can do not to pass out. My heart rate doubles, & I start shaking, I just have to get as far away from them as possible. I really can`t understand why people stand & stare at car crashes the way they do, how can they enjoy looking at stuff like that, it seems sick to enjoy the sight of other people injured & in pain.
