Re: Do you FREAK out over BLOOD?!If it is mine, I faint. No hestitation! Sucks if I need to bandage the shit.
I have no problem helping someone else out though, it doesn't gross me out surprisingly. Two ocassions I can remember rushing in to save a gusher. Each time people were looking at me funny. One guy flipped his car in an intersection and didn't understand English but the blood was runnung down his arm in a steady stream. I grabbed him and held it up, he would put it down as soon as I let go so I would grab it and hold it up for him again and scold him. I didn't want him needing a darned transfusion. All the while being yelled at by my lovely boyfriend at the time.
Next instance was at a bar and a guy picked up his glass and it shattered slicing his hand wide open, I immediately applied pressure to his wrist to control the spurting of blood. Everyone else evacuated while I am asking for towels and someone to get him to a hospital. I know there are things you can get from blood but I also know it sucks to be in a bad accident and to have no one help.
To the OP, don't feel bad there are things that I cannot deal with and scrub like you did with the purse.
