The Blood Dungeon

Filed under: Blogroll — Tony @ 12:08 pm

So… My Dr. has requested some blood work be done work before a follow up visit.

I have to dig extremely deep and mentally prepare myself to roll out of bed in the
morning and drive myself to the Blood lab which is in the basement of the Doctors office (hence the name blood dungeon.) There’s something extremely disturbing to me about that round test tube at the end of a spike in combination with The suction feeling, not to mention the the sight of my blood squirting into the tube.

I arrive at the lab, sign in and I’m sitting there waiting. I can hear the conversation going on behind the closed door to the exam/blood draw zone. The phlebotomist is missing the poor woman’s vein multiple times. As I sit there panic sets in and I start thinking about the holes in Swiss cheese. I realize I’m next. I stood up, crossed my name off the list and left!

• The good… I don’t have an arm full of holes.

• The bad… I have to go back now!

Anyone else hate this as much as I do?
