Seeing Stars

I will spare you the gory details but today while I was at my doctor's appointment, my nurse practitioner decided to run some tests. I hate tests. Tests mean needles. Needles mean I FREAK OUT.

I remained calm for about 30 seconds into it. Afterward I almost passed out. Seriously. Vampire lady had to call for assistance. I was fanned, brought orange juice and had those smelling salts you see on tv waved in front of me. It wasn't so fun.

Oh my god. That is awful. The only time I ever almost passed out was, well, it's a pretty nasty story. Maybe I'll tell it to you sometime instead of writing it and disgusting all your commenters.

Hope you feel better.

Oh... so sorry! You sound like my husband. He does NOT do well around anyone in scrubs. Best of luck to you!
