I had to get my annual blood check done today. I had a new nurse who had obviously not practiced her needle skills. She tapped and poked and exclaimed how small my veins were, anyway she got it done but the big ouch comes this afternoon.
Why does the medical profession use the term 'mild discomfort'. They said that through three births and it was anything but mild discomfort. This afternoon I have to have a mammogram and the mild discomfort involves being clamped into a machine. Now some may not find this uncomfortable but to me it is extremely. It is like the other female test one has to undergo every year, the PAP, that is quite excrutiating as far as I am concerned and I dread it.
Maybe my pain tolerance level is very low, my Father had an extremely high one. In fact he once had a jeep roll over his foot and he was not aware that he had broken bones until it discoloured.
We are all so different aren't we?
