  • I think it is just the way you are, but I don't know for sure. I do know that my husband tells of the toughest guy at work who faints at the sight of blood. Some people do. I have felt sick to my stomach and dizzy and pale at the sight of oogy stuff.

  • There is nothing you can do to get over this except some counseling. My step sis is the same way.

  • You could try some sort of hypnosis, that's what my grandmother did to overcome her fear of flying. I imagine it'd be the same sort of concept for fear of blood.
