Squish Poke

So, followed up with two things I had to do - get blood drawn and mammogram. Poke and squish. When I gave blood, there was a person being trained, so she was watching. "you have great veins! blood is just spurting out!" I said that might not be something she wants to say to people, as you never know who might faint hearing that. I didn't mind too much. But I am certainly one of those people who can't watch it being done. I never have, and never will. I don't feel like finding out if I will faint.

That's my exciting day.

I don't mind having my blood drawn or even watching it. I think that it is interesting and have thought of becoming one of the vampires that do that blood work thing.
Now the mammogram... I hate those! I always get pinched and things are so cold.

I can't watch having my blood drawn. I used to be a phlebotomist. I can obviously look when I draw someone else's blood. Just not when anyone draws mine.

Good for you! I could use some standard testing myself.
I don't mind watching a blood draw, but I have been accused of having "rolling" veins. It can be quite a process.

I can't watch it being done either; especially when they stick the needle in my arm.
