20 Memes That Nail What It's Like to Have Blood Work Done
Most people unfortunately have to deal with blood work at some point in their lives – but for those with chronic illness, getting blood drawn can be a frequent (and often frustrating) occurrence. For me, the worst part is that fact that I have very small and weak veins, many of which are blown out from years of infusions, IVs and lab work. This often results in the phlebotomist needing to stick me about five or six times before they can find a vein with adequate blood flow. I don’t hold it against them, but still – it’s no fun to walk out of the lab with your arms and hands covered in gauze and bandages.
As unenjoyable as having blood work done can be, sometimes one of the best ways to cope is with a little humor. If laughing helps get you through the struggles of blood draws, you may enjoy the following memes.
