The blood tests
Yesterday, the day for the blood tests arrived. It is fair to say needles and I do not have the best of relationships, I wrote about it in the Fibromyalgia and Blood Tests
post. It sounds strange but I was actually more worried about how horribly faint I was likely to feel afterwards than the actual needle. As this test was booked in at the GP surgery rather than just dropping into the Phlebotomy Clinic at the hospital opposite they did not have a proper chair for the job so the nurse thought I would be better laying down rather than sitting in a standard seat. As usual, Michael and I just started chatting having told her not to inform me when she does it and I kid you not I WAS FINE! No dizziness no nausea it was easy. Either lying rather than sitting made a big difference or I was subconsciously more worried about the further tests and the implications. After she had finished doing her admin we mentioned the letter I had received and she checked my records and said the results from the swab had come back clear. So at this point, I am a bit confused. Was I just sent a standard letter because most people who attend the clinic have had abnormal readings, has the doctor’s surgery not been informed of the correct results? At this point, I am going to go along with the first option as it would be the best one.
