For the first time in years, blood draws are avoidable. And I had my last blood draw yesterday.
It wasn't for the trial or a check-up, it was for a blood test required by my life insurance. This test wasn't required of anyone else at work, all of whom have the same insurance, so must be a cleverly disguised test for illegal substances. They got my urine and my blood. It's cool. I'm clean. Or, they could be concerned for my health.
At any rate, they added three holes to my body before they got any blood, and that's the last blood I am giving up until my yearly physical in September, baby. This is my body and my blood, and I am keeping it all inside.
