I don't want to do peak +7 blood draws anymore. I just got back from one, and it was horrible. I was in so much pain that I almost cursed. The lady said that I am starting to get scar tissue and that they are going to have to start drawing from other areas, like the forearm. So, on top of the excruciating pain I was in with her supposedly pushing through scar tissue, I had to deal with the mental trauma of thinking of an upper arm blood draw. I cried all the way home. My freaking arm still hurts. Why do we have to have these draws anyway, especially if we haven't had any medication changes? I am going to ask Dr. H's office if these things are necessary. I just don't feel like I can do them anymore. I am still in tears.
