I don't get a flu shot, but this reminds me of when I was tested for gestational diabetes while pregnant with my youngest child.
I had to get 'jabbed' a lot, and also had to spend several hours at our clinic to have my blood checked about
every half hour. One of the gals who drew the blood seemed to just have a rougher technique. The other gal who did it was super fast, and I hardly even felt the prick of the needle!
True, though, Sherrine---there will always be some who are as gentle as Attila the Hun.
Hope your arm is better soon, Myself 09. Take care of yourself and have a good weekend, y'hear?
