My blood just turned into jello
as I went to the hospital for tests,
no words can describe the anxiety
that pestered me that day …
Though I know I should not fear,
there’s nothing I can do
when the time for the blood test comes
I turn into a pavid fool!
The nurse deftly stuck the needle
into my willing puffed-up vein …
Ouch! came from me istinctively
to my mouth with a pucker of pain.
She grabbed some cottonwool,
then taped the fluff onto my wound,
telling me I could have my morning meal,
although it was way past ten.
Well .. they do call me Bastet 🙂 Of course I have no fear of needles … but I do know people who are. 😉
Ugh …. how I remember those blood tests. Far too many blood tests! It takes so long to get used to them …. used to pass out when I had blood tests but now I can watch them draw vials and even get it smeared on my arm without a tad bit of wooziness.
You’ve done very well with this wordle! 🙂
I have to admit that I don’t get woozy about blood tests or indeed the sight of blood … but that’s where the wordle took me and so that’s where I went. 😉 On the other hand my second son developed a real phobia about needles … he even went so far as to hide under a parked car to avoid getting his vacinations when he was 3. Now that scared the bejesus out of me.
Oh my goodness — I’d be terrified too!!! Wow.
Never hid under any cars … .but I did pass out on occasion. No kidding.
I believe you … having experienced my Ian, I wouldn’t have been surprised at anything as far as needles and blood letting is concerned!
Ooh thank you for the word pavid…and what a concise snapshot of the horrors of a hospital test…it flowed as quick clickety-click as nurses feet
Thanks … love the word pavid … only wasn’t sure it was English 😉 … I learnt it through Italian … pavido/a
That gave me goose bumps! Needles are not for me.
I do sympathize ..
