Your blood makes a lot of peole happy. It provides work for the people who draw it, for those who analyze it, for those who file the analysis and for the guys who make the filing cabinets. So much happy people who can now feed their families thanks to your contribution.

BTW, the story that blood is used to find out what's wrong with you is just an urban legend.

I know how you feel Dani! I used to hate/be scared of needles, just like everyone else. But between all of my shoulder surgeries & eye surgeries, and CP, I think I've seen it all/had it all done to me. Don't get me wrong, I still hate being poked & prodded, but I'll pretty much let anyone do anything to me & put up with it as long as I know that it might potentially help me in the end.

I actually have an incredibly high acute pain tolerance. My acupuncturist can do basically any point on me - points that he wouldn't dream of doing on any other patient, because they are very painful. I just sit there & let him do it & don't say a word. He jokes that I should be used in a teaching case for acupuncture induced anesthesia (apparently that is very painful).

Dani,
I am with you. After the 3 week stay in the hospital I am rebelling against needles and being poked and prodded. I am hoping this last surgery has taken care of the nerve pain also and I don't have to have anymore nerve blocks.

Morgoth, I knew there was a conspiracy or something behind the blood draws.; )

Take care,
Bill

Aw Dani,

I'm sorry for your frustration. But please feel free to vent!! This is the right place to do that. We all understand.

As for blood draws, they don't bother me a bit. When I was pregnant with my first born some 39 years ago, they drew so much blood on me and poked me all the time ( military hosptial) that I got used to it. Now, it doesn't bother me a bit. But, it bothers a lot of people and I am very sorry you are having to go through this. I hope it all slows down for you.

Hang in there and God bless. Gentle Hugs from me to you.


PS Morgoth, you are a riot!! Love your sense of humor.

    I love my spine specialist. He is an increadibly intelligent man, no doubnt about it. So when my teeth fell out, he was concerned and wanted a blood test. I tried to tell him it was okay, just grew up in poverty and my oral health has beena  bottomless pit of expendatures.. Got just a lil grumpy said "Still need you to get blood work done. Please." So of course I said okay. I dont know about any of you folks but I feel a little wiped out after my medacine is put in to my back. So on second day.. I got blood work.
 
Few days later they call, with appointments already made. *sigh* I see my primary care physician, again, a welth of knowladge and understanding all wrapped up in a doctor. He tells me blood work is a lil off. Need to see an endocronologist... 2 days after that (okay, okay.. i was a lil tired of docs by then..) I meet the new endocronologist fellow. First impression : Increadibly alert. Seems to notice everything, and naturally multi tasks (this part is big..) My girls like him alot for some reason. Anyway, he wanted MORE tests. I dont mind normally.. But after my medacine gets put in my back, I feel so much better and want to catch-up, live, have fun, LOL
 
 In anycase, finally done gathering all the information about my "insides" that he wanted.  Oh my gosh I had to travel all over the place! No more hopefully. He can tell me what hes decided from his tests results, next monday.

Your doing what I do normally.  Sometimes I wonder if all the appointments, blood draws and procedure will do us all in....lol

Hopefully he will leave you alone for a bit after all this running around.

I can't wait for Star Trek medicine. You know, when "Bones" just uses the little laser device (or whatever it was!) to diagnose a condition and that's it!

Course I guess that was as realistic as the "beam me up Scottie" part! :-)

Yay for Star Trek! smilewinkgrin Yes, I'm a real big science nerd. But you all should know that by now!
They do have some pretty neat medical devices. Although, they do still have "hypo sprays," which I guess are kinda like needles, only they jab you in the neck! Ouch! The characters always pretend like those hurt. So I guess, that even then, there is still some poking & prodding involved. sad Post Star Trek medicine anyway?

I forgot about the holi-deck!! That was cool!

Skeye - Love your memory! Yep, hopefully by now things would have improved to the point there is no longer any discomfort involved, but if it's one injection to the neck to be cured, I'll grit my teeth!! :-)

I don't know if it's memory so much as the fact that I am a huge Star Trek Fan (with exception of the oldest & newest series made) & have watched most episodes many times! Star Trek is something that helps with my pain :). Or maybe not so much the pain, but it helps to give me something else to try & focus on!

I love the old star trek. My favorite episode is with the TRIBLES. They got out of control and reproduced like a nightmare..lol
