Getting my covid vaccine on Friday. How do I handle the pain of the needle?

Anonymous
I searched it up and hardly anyone says that needles hurt. But that isn't the case for me. They hurt more for me because I have anemia (low iron) and a vitamin d deficiency and vitamin b deficiency. My shoulders are weak and I don't know why. I still STILL feel the pain of the needles from grade 7 and 8. In my left and right shoulder, it feels like there is a bruise there, whenever I move my arms around or touch the area, it just hurts like there's a bruise. But there's nothing there but it feels like there is.

Whenever I think of needles, my shoulders just hurt more, and it almost feels like that alongside the bruise, its like the needle is still in my shoulder rn even though it happened so many years ago like wtf thats not normal. How am I supposed to handle the needle this Friday, I'm going to tense up even if I take deep breaths slowly... I'm just going to start shaking and feeling all this pain so what the hell do I do?

Mum at least is going to get my shoulder checked out but I still am freeking out for Friday, she said she will give me some cream to soothe the pain but I still am panicking. I also can still feel my blood test from last year in my upper arm, but its not to the same extent as my shoulders.
