Oh, Marie, that video of caleb was awesome.
I am afraid of blood draws as well, and I usually look away and try not to think about it. I tell the nurse not to tell me when she stings me, that makes it easier for me, that way I don't anticipate the pain. I don't like a countdown to the moment they put the needle in, the nurses often think they make it easier when they tell me: "3, 2, 1, and in!" But I don't like it at all.
If you are scared of the pain, you can try EMLA cream or EMLA bandaids.
"EMLA Cream is a local anestetic, with eutectic mixture of lidocaine 2.5% and prilocaine 2.5%. This means that each gram of EMLA cream is containing 25mg of lidocaine and prilocaine.
ELMA Cream is local anestetic, which is working by blocking nerve signals, on specific area of your body."

Since I got my blood drawn as a child a lot, they always offered to give me some, and I usually took it, because I was quite scared. at some point I did not need it anymore.
The cream is sometimes also used for kids to put in a new pump set, however, it is very expensive, and can get pricey pretty fast if you use it every 3 days for set change. But I think for an annual or 3-monthly blood draw it is ok, if it helps you.
