I guess I just worry about blood because sometimes, the pencils sit by a computer and I'm sure get covered with germs during procedures even though they hide in a small crack by the computer. I just keep thinking that maybe my coworker wasn't as careful with her pencil as I am (she's not a hypochondriac, she doesn't usually sanitize her pencils but I spray EVERYTHING because I am afraid of germs). I don't have a puncture, just a little scrape if that makes sense. No blood, just really really red (is that normal?) No lead either.
I think I have a piece of a pencil still stuck in my hand from when I was a kid but that pencil wasn't from a dental office...ugh...I see my therapist tomorrow so maybe I should talk to her about this.
