I used to have a paranoid fear of injections. I know it is cowardly and I never understood why this should be after all I was at one time a Paratrooper. Eventually I managed to get over it and recently when I started to have regular blood tests at the surgery I use the phlebotomist was fantastic never hurting me and only leaving a small bruise. However, the last time I had a blood test the nurse who took it really hurt me and a bruise developed four inches across. When I had to go to my next blood test I opened the door to enter the place where it was to be taken and saw that I was with the nurse who took the last one and I told her I did not feel up to it. I asked at reception if I could see the regular phlebotomist and was firmly told that I could not pick who I saw. Is this correct because if that is so I will look for a private clinic that does blood tests.
