Anita Richards #Rollup4WA Selfie

The photo is a selfie of Anita Richards with the #Rollup4WA social media overlay.

This selfie with RollUp4WA overlay was created on Facebook and then screen captured to celebrate my #Rollup4WA: Jab Day.

… This day was probably like no other day ever in terms of personal significance and as a life altering event.

I was a tumultuous mess of emotions as I remembered a similar scene from when I was a little girl as my mother took my brother, sister and I to have our childhood diseases vaccinations.

Mum was holding my sister firmly, I clearly remember that. My sister was ok with the medication cup although she definitely did not like the way that it tasted. But when it came to the injection she was screaming almost instantly when the needle was inserted. She went from calm and trusting to bitterly betrayed in a split second.

My fear of needles stems from that very day.

Now, after living with the terror or COVID-19 for over a year, now my fear of needles is conquered! I am happy!
