Most of us don’t have to face our fears in order to be healthy.
You don’t see doctors making people who have a phobia of heights standing on top of tall buildings or waving spiders in the faces of arachnophobes.
But if you’ve got a fear of needles, it’s really difficult getting routine injections – as Frances Wang found out the hard way.
The news reporter, from California, filmed herself getting jabs as she knew she’d have an amusing reaction.
In the video, Frances closes her eyes tightly and starts yelling at the nurse trying to get her to have a conversation about Game of Thrones.
She says: “Let’s talk about Game of Thrones what episode are you on? WHAT EPISODE ARE YOU ON?”
Her speech becomes louder and more frantic as the needle comes closer and she shouts: “OK here we go OH MY GOD, OH MY GOD, OH MY GOD.”
As the medical professionals try to relax her and tell her not to move, she shouts: “I wish I could hold her with both hands but that doesn’t make sense!”
Using another distraction technique as the needle enters her skin, she shouts: “You just came back from Canada? WHAT DID YOU DO IN CANADA WHAT DID YOU DO IN CANADA?”
Her video had more than 2million views after USA Today posted it on their Facebook page and Frances admits it’s hilarious.
Although she does confess that if she knew the clip would go viral, she would have worn make-up or “fixed” her hair.
Frances said she posted the video to let other adults scared of needles know that they’re not alone and to “let kids who have to get shots sometimes or often know that adults get scared too! And hopefully make them laugh or feel brave.”
