    Yes, I have blood. (If I don't, that would explain a lot...)

    At least I think.

    Is that the test?

    (Sorry Abs, just waiting for a little more information as to what you're asking.)

    So, for more information, I mean blood test as in when someone inserts a needle into your vein and sucks blood out of ya.

    I love getting stuck with needles. I like the big needle when I donate blood. I keep squeezing the ball so I can fill up the bag fast. Nothing like a good blood letting.

    Hahaha, sorry, I'm typing this while I'm out having dinner at Nando's (alone) so I was kinda too slow and my mind was all over the place (trying to eat and type at the same time, keeping in mind I'm in at somewhere public and I can't just stuff my face like I normally do at home).

    Cause you know, I just had my medical check up so, I'm still mourning the loss of my blood.

    When I was a kid, my Dad donated blood all the time, and he would come home with a Band-Aid and one of those "Be nice to me--I gave blood today" stickers that they used to give out (he also claims that my Mom STILL was never nice to him... lol.)

    So, I always thought that when I grew up, I would do that, too. Except that I was deathly scared of needles, so that was a bit of a problem. At that time, getting a marriage license in my home state required a blood test, and that worried me, even as a kid. I even contemplated never getting married because of it!

    I will never forget one time when I had to have blood drawn as a kid. I think I was about 5 years old, and I was so scared that I was contemplating hopping right off the table and running. But a very kind nurse must have noticed this, and so she told me to turn my head away, cover my eyes, and sing the "ABC's" out loud. She even sang with me to help me remember the letters.

    And I have been doing that ever since--even as an adult (though I no longer turn my head--I can even watch them), and even though I no longer sing out loud (well, usually... in order to spare the poor staff. ) Sometimes I sing different songs to myself, but... if you promise not to tell anyone ... Most often, I am still singing my "ABC's", in order to honor that nurse. Her kindness for a scared little kid came in handy later in life, when I had a few medical concerns that always seemed to involve drawing blood.

    One of the first things I did when I turned 18 was to sign up to be a blood donor, and I did so for many years. I'm just now getting back into it (they always had the drives when I was working, so I couldn't go for a long time), and the last time I almost fainted, but I believe that nurse gave me an incredible gift that day, and I always wanted to try to use it for good (kind of like a super power, lol.)

    I know some people believe that giving blood is not Biblical ("The life of the flesh is in the blood", Lev. 17:11) and are against it, and I can respect their beliefs.

    But one of the things that influenced me heavily as a kid was when a family in our church congregation was in a car accident, and their child's life was on the line. My Dad and pastor would drive 3 hours each way in order to donate platelets whenever they could, and that was played a crucial role in saving that child.

    I admit that it's gotten tougher as I've gotten older, seeing as I have those dreaded veins that collapse and roll, which sometimes turns me into a pincushion. I dread it just as much as anyone else, but I try my best to put up a brave front.

    I always have the thought in the back of my head when I sign up for a blood drive--that it may seem like a small, insignificant act--but it could be saving the life of someone else's loved one... maybe even a child.

    And who knows, maybe someday, other donors might be saving the lives of MY loved ones... or even... me.

    (If nothing else... I at least get free cookies after it's all done! )

    I had to get hooked up to an IV back in december... they had trouble finding a good vein because I was very dehydrated (I think that's why) and they poked me 3 times, but it didn't really hurt. Just think of it as a little bee sting. That's really what it feels like. I've been stung before so I know.

    The needle goes into the vein. But she must've hit an artery or something if it hurt THAT much..

    I have no opinion, as I haven't had a blood test in so long that I can't remember it. I mean I'm sure I got one as a kid or something, but I can't remember it. Since then I haven't done anything that would get me an infection that requires a blood test, so I'm going to keep my blood to myself. If I ever have a situation that requires a blood test I guess I'll go see the vampire of a doctor, and then I'll have an opinion on blood tests.

    The thing that bothers me the most about blood tests is finding the clinic that does them, and then finding some place within two blocks to park.

    I was the type to watch, until the time I fainted. (I don't think the two things were related, but like hedging my bets.)

    I held the family record at 17 jabs to hit the vein for a good 13 years. Then John doubled it. (34 jabs to hit his vein, and then finally had to use an ultrasound to find his vein.)

    One thing I hate to do is distract the person working on me, so I will not yell, scream, or flinch. But one time, I probably should have. The phlebotomist tried taking blood out of an elbow ligament. Ligaments don't have blood, however, I got a bruise from my lower arm (3/5ths to my wrist) all the way up to my shoulder the next day. Stupid part is I was wondering what the woman in the next bay in the ER was screaming about, when he took her blood. And then I knew.

    I still have no problem giving blood. I'm just less trusting on phlebotomists.

    And, I want to thank the 60+ people who donated the blood that saved my husband's life.

    I hate shots and I hate blood tests. Any time a needle has to go into my arm is never a good time for me.

    Also, this wasn't a blood test, but this does remind me of a time I had to get a shot in my butt. That wasn't a fun day at the doctor's office.

    Needles don’t bother me much anymore. When I was in the hospital to have my first baby, I felt like I was constantly getting jabbed- IVs, epidural (the anesthesiologist had a hard time sticking the giant needle into my spine; he kept missing whatever he was trying to hit and had to redo it 9 times while I hid my face in a pillow and tried not to pass out), then blood draws twice a day while I was there because I got an infection. I’d wake up to some vampire nurse taking my blood every time I finally managed to rest. Maybe it was only once a day...hard to remember. Just lots of needles.
