so yesterday i went to give blood…i’ve spoken about being a blood donor before, the diameter of the needle is (–) that big; the needle is HUGE (as far as i am concerned). Anyhoo, when u go to give blood, they swab the area with iodine – wiping(scrubbing) it clean. the chick yesterday did that and left the iodine on my skin; it’s a dark brown liquid like substance. After all that, she had no problems and stuck the needle in with ONE shot – NO PROBLEMS, normEl, normEl. The blood flowed with no issues and i was actually done in 10 minutes!!!
I am convinced that the size of the needle makes a helluva difference; i doh care what the professionals think/say..it MUST be the size of the needle. Y is it that when i go for my infusion, my veins don’t corporate??? they play the “i don’t want to come out and lime” or “catch me if u can” games AND my blood never flows; in fact, recently, the lady had to use a syringe to plunge and draw the blood out of me!!!!! i think the veins see that “blood donor” needle coming and jes boil down like bhaji (settle/calm right down).
I’m a pint low…go easy on me 🙂
