Blood test... argh...

It was a cool and clear Sunday morning, and I have fasted for the last 10 hours... for this! A long, overdue blood test! It has been almost 2 years since I've last done one, I suppose it's a good time for a check up. Went to BP Lab and signed a waiver form (in case anything happened to me, they won't be responsible... I'm talking about the potential of getting diseases/infection from the needles...*sweat*). Then they showed me the syringe, big and sharp.


The lady was shy when I took pictures, but she ended up saying she's done this many times before, and didn't mind. So of I went and shoot shoot shoot... Now that she's ready, she hunted for my veins and swipe my arm with alcohol ( I guess). Then came the shot... slowly, steadily, and OWW... prick! Blood started to flow into the syringe at high speed. :P

My arms getting ready to be pricked

Check out the blood oozing at high pressure...

After the initial prick, it was actually not painful anymore. But I still did not dare to look at the needle. Thank goodness it's over in less than a minute. I don't know why but I feel cleaner, now that I have 'renewed' some 50ml of blood? *LOL*

Results came out a few days later and I'm healthy! Healthy healthy babe! :)

Ohh... too bad you didn't have photos to share, or we can compare how big our needles are! ;)
