    Mind you, it's not like I'm a professional bloodgiver or anything, but I'ev not met a bad one yet ... and I have this irrational fear of needles and turn white as a sheet and these poor folks put up with me...

    bloody amazing, as it were.

    OTOH, what sort of person WANTS to take blood from others? :eek1: :haha:

    I've been doing it for over 4 years now.

    Sometimes if the patient is real sick I would have to poke several times to get different labs.. And that's not counting I.V.'s!!
