Ever since my grandma spent about 8 weeks in the hospital a few years ago, I have been donating blood. She required a lot of blood during her surgery and it made me realize I needed to become a donator. Unfortunately, my veins are crap. They are small and hard to find. It is like torture!!!
The girl who drew my blood today told me the worst thing. She told me her goal on the first poke was only to get the needle in...she wasn't even trying for the vein. Ummmmm.....what??? I could get the needle in! I don't need a professional for that! It took her forever to find my vein and her comment really irked me. Last time she drew my blood a few months ago, I bruised all kinds of colors! This time she put an ice pack on my arm so hopefully it won't bruise as badly.
Do you donate blood? Do you have all kinds of fun like I do or is it easy for you?
