With the needles that they use now, you shouldn't even feel it, if the lab person knows what they are doing. I had to go every month for awhile and got used to it. I just looked the other way and it was over before I knew it. Also, I can understand not wanting to take medication but if it is going to prevent a goiter, heart attack or blindness, etc. then it is worth taking. I encourage you to get tested, if not for yourself, for the sake of your family.
