I’ve gotten used to having my blood taken out. In the past, I would look away so I wouldn’t have to see the needle go into my vein, but these days, I get it done fairly regularly so it’s a familiar sight. I don’t find it scary or painful. Today, though, the specialist at the testing center I usually go to had a hard time finding my vein. After she stuck the needle in, my blood wasn’t moving into the vial very well, so she had to move the needle around while it was in my arm. AUGH. I’m probably going to bruise where the needle was. 😦
I’m not sure if it’s from the blood work or just from being tired, but I’ve been nursing a headache all day. Going to go to bed early tonight!
