I was trying to be brave!

So I went to have my blood drawn yesterday morning and I was SO nervous. But I just kept thinking about how brave I was last time and how I didn't pass out and I was determined to do it again. I lasted until after she finished taking my blood... then Matt said I started groaning and my eyes rolled back into my head and I started swaying in the chair. Then I put my head on the little arm rest thing in front of me and out I went. When I came back there were puddles of sweat underneath my forehead and forearms... isn't that weird?! Seriously... PUDDLES! I always pass out, but that was a first! I don't know what the deal is. Anyway I felt so bad for Matt, he was pretty worried. Maybe next time I can be more brave... haha.

Passing out is so not fun, but doesn't it feel better after the fact? I'm so proud of you though! Getting your blood drawn is INTENSE!

At least Matt was with you! Imagine 5 or 10 years down the line and you are at the doctor's office with just your kids and they spring on you that you need your blood drawn. Imagine...

Maybe you're pregnant...;) And I am impressed. I hate needles, so I would never voluntary go give blood. Good for you.
