Well he had this insane rash on his back and was breaking out in hives which we think was the flyspray.

But better safe than sorry. The vet says that he looks to be in immaculate health though, as in good weight, good clear eyes, no sign of lameness. Does need muscle tone though.

Sounds to me like the person who took your blood didn't really know what they were doing.

maybe he was a newbie? The guy that tried to get my iv in went from one elbow, to the other, then to both wrists before his supervisor finally came over and did it! Haha he was probably nervous!

*Insert something witty*

Persons 3 of them had no luck. Then the other lady that did it (she was in her 20s) had success with the baby needle.

Lol he seemed all calm and cool so if he was nervous, he was hiding it well.

I'm not the type that makes guys near me nervous lol. I'm not like outrageously attractive or whatever.

That sounds absolutely terrible with the blood drawing. D: I don't do needles...at all. They always end up yelling at me to relax when I tense up...like that's going to make me relax. It's never left scars, but I don't scar easily.

Have you tried melatonin for the insomnia? It helped me for a few months at least.

Yes but I'm very stubborn and want to work through it on my own cause even if I sleep with melatonin.. it's not a very good sleep. I wake up more exhausted then before.. if that makes sense.

Yeah :( it sucked. I wish that experience upon no one!
