tried giving blood today. this time neither of the phlebotomists wanted to try. i chug water most of the day, but for some reason my veins are tiny. they struggle to find them and sometimes they can only find the ones that are smaller then the needle. another donor listening to them talking about the problems if they miss my vein started to get squimish. when they made the comment about not wanting to cause a tissue clot, i though that lady would jump off the bus.
i enjoy giving blood but i am glad they didn't risk causing the damage to my veines/arms again. the last 2 times i had bruises on both arms for about a week
