...another? Not necessarily.
Look at what happened to me when I tried to
self-mutilate myself donate blood last 4 days ago!!
*get ready to gasp in horror*
Yesh, that's me in tears. T_T
Can you imagine this? Two BIG bruises on my right arm that are growing bigger and darker by day. All just becoz I wanted to be a nice person for once and help the greater good. *boohoo*
Anyway, the tale started on a normal wednesday afternoon when Li Yann and I walked into imu, and we noticed that there was a blood donation drive going on. Since I'd donated before twice, I decided that I'll continue with my previous good deeds. It was Li Yann's first time too, so of coz she was rather excited abt it.
However, like the last 2 times, the flow of my blood into the bags was kinda slow. And so the nurses tot that it was a problem with their placing of the needle. And yes, they attempted to take the needle slightly in and out a few times, which was kinda painful. After several poking-arounds under the skin of my arm, the pain became too severe that I cudn't stand it, so I asked the nurse to stop and take it out. Altho my blood wasn't enough to fill the bag to the brim, but at least I tried, didn't I?
Anyway, what you see in the photo is the result of a haemorrhage due to the damage done inside I think. *sigh* Yes, it looks AND feels painful. -_- I think the nurse didn't insert the needle into the vein properly. aikz. Hope I can do it better next time for my future patients.
Whatever, just gotta take it all in my stride. And it IS for a good cause. Those precious drops of my blood is gonna go save some lives somewhere! yay yay~
PS: I had my 20th bday last friday!! ^v^ Was really fun. A full post coming up soon! Need time to upload and edit photos. hehe. Get ready for that! woo.
