I went for my monthly blood test today to check my liver levels as I am on the drug Tracleer. I alternate between my left and right arms, and since I am on Plavix, I always ask the nurses to use a small needle, even a pediatric needle if possible as I bruise very easily. Also, getting blood test sometimes twice a month can wreck havoc on my veins.
Today I got the most grumpy, sour, unfriendly nurse that ever existed on planet earth. I think they shipped her in from hell just for today. I asked her to use a small needle, but she ignored me and pushed probably the largest needle in her arsenal so hard into my arm, I thought she was going to go right through the vein.
She never said a word, drew the blood and when she was done, slapped a bandage on me and sent me on my way. When I got home, this is what my arm looked like, the mark of the devil nurse from hell.
