Health practitioners don't usually have any problems taking blood from me, however it all changed when i went really ill last Christmas and my veins just suddenly collapsed. Since then drawing blood has been hard, bloody painful and sore and I've had enough of it. I had an appointment today to check my bloods but after 4 attempts... NOTHING! And i'm going to be embarrassed going out Friday night with all the bruises on my arms!!!
My appointment has been made for a week today to let my veins rest so they can attempt to draw blood again, any advice how to make the procedure easier? Is there anything I can do??
