I want to hear all your blood test/IV stories. The good the bad and the ugly. As we SC-ers have to have bloods taken regularly and cannulas put in when we are hospitalised with a crisis or for blood transfusions.
I've had 9 failed needle attempts in one session because my veins are so thin. I've had blood drawn from the veins in my feet. A couple of days ago I felt the worst pain when a phleb put the needle in but was having difficulty finding a vein, so jiggled it about and hit my nerve. I jumped back in agony and she got so angry with me because it is dangerous to make a sudden move.
I write for a living and want to write more about SC and would love to hear other people's stories. The good, the bad, the ugly.
