I know I'm not the only one who has this problem, and I know I have to get blood taken for health reasons, but everytime I go - they can't find a vein. It usually takes about 10 - 15 minutes for a "qualified" person to actually get any blood from me (after rooting around with the needle). I have had to cancel a catscan due to the fact that 5 nurses couldn't locate a vein to inject me. I have tried "baby" needles, drinking lots of water to hydrate - no luck. My doctor has done it, he uses the blood pressure kit to tie off my arm and uses a pen to find the vein, then finally gets blood. The last time it took him 20 minutes. He says he can no longer do this for me. Does anyone else have this bad a problem, and if so how do you overcome the fear??? Thanks Faith
