Edward Wouldn't Want Me!!

The last couple of days have been great. That's sarcasm if you didn't know. Yesterday, was that yearly check up thing that's always a barrel of laughs. Today I had to have some routine blood work done. I'm not afraid of needles. Blood? Yeh, not a fan but needles I've always been ok with. That is until the last several years. Having gone through fertility treatments, blood work is a necessary evil & I now HATE it & needles. Luckily, I don't have to have it done often. The last time I had a lady that I thought just wasn't very good. It really hurt & it hurt worse when she took the needle out than it did going in. Today, I was very happy to not see that lady. UNTIL I see the words "Student Phlebotomist". Oh boy. I'm not saying that she wouldn't know what she was doing but it made me a little nervous because there is sometimes a problem finding a vein. I give her my right arm & tell her how happy I am that the other lady isn't doing it. I wanted her to see I had faith in her! Well, she sticks me  & it really hurt but I was ok. It sure seemed to be stuck in my arm for a long time. That's when she says "um" UM? WTH?? "It looks like we're going to have to go with the other arm". Why is that exactly?? "it stopped". Stopped? What stopped? "the blood".  What exactly does that mean? It means that the blood just stopped flowing. Just stopped, nada, nothing. Interesting. This isn't the first time this has happened to me. The other time I thought it was operator error but apparently it's my weird body. This is so strange to me. Last year when I had a biopsy I bled like someone stabbed me & now when they need blood, nothing. I'm a fan of the Twilight books & I always leaned to Team Jacob. It's a good thing because Edward wouldn't be interested since apparently I don't have enough blood! So what happens with the quarter of a vile that she got? It gets trashed because apparently you can't add blood from the other arm to it. Whatever. We moved to my other arm, I get stuck & it hurt bad again. She took 2 viles, taped up both arms & I was free to go but "carry your purse with your other arm".

We went to eat tonight at VooDoo BBQ. It was really good! I'm so ready for it to be Friday at 4:30.

I'm watching Grey's now & can it be any bloodier? I'm not liking the flashbacks either.
