About Me: Female, 31, Bloomington, MN, member since Jul 2011
27 year old female; born in Omaha, NE; living in Bloomington, MN currently. I work as a phlebotomist at Allina Medical Clinic in Woodbury. For anyone who doesn't know what a phlebotomist does, they draw blood. So I am probably one of the last people at the doctor's offi
[More]ce you want to have to visit. I do love my job though. I am lucky because not everybody can say that they love their job. I even look forward to it! I also have an amazing group of co-workers. I'm engaged and busy planning a wedding. I never knew how stressful that could be until I got that beautiful ring on my finger.
My health interests include mental health, women's health, sexual health, pet health, and chronic pain. I have chronic pain in both my knees and I have been to many doctors who love to give me a cortisone injection but that's about it. I am fed up with doctors not listening to me when I tell them that sometimes (especially at night) my knee pain level is a 10. I mean obviously something must be wrong if that's the case, right? The cortisone shots do help ease the pain for a little while, but I feel as though they're just a "bandaid." So if anyone happens to read this and knows anything about orthopedics, it would be great to talk to you! That's about all I can say for now ;-)
