I think the interesting about this is that even though he is not a full on needle phobe(since he has no problems receiving a blood test)...but he still feels weak for a few days afterward, shows that needle phobia is something that needs to be looked at more closely by the healthcare industry. Research needs to be done as to whether people like Manny feeling weak is strictly a psychological issue, or whether there are physiological effects as well.

Like I said, I think it solidifies all of our arguments, if people who aren't even phobic of the needles persay, still suffer negative ramifications as a result.
