Could be your blood platelets are high. I'm no doc. but have read about that. It's called thombocythenia, where the blood platlets are high causing thickening of the blood, even clotting in the viens in extreme cases. You may want to ask your doc. about it.

Could be high hemoglobin. BTW is there a prize for the right guess? Let us know when you get the results back :)

Hey the Queen of England used to drop in on us once in a while....

ifx, based on the kool-aid like stuff what comes out of me, I think you can rule out low platelets, low WBC, and low hemoglobin...

Good luck, let us know.

me thinks you have too many dreams about Ellie May.  

But knowing you it just might actually be granny or Miss Jane.

;-)

Couldn't help myself either.

PS Sorry no advice about the blood - i do my best not to look every time they draw mine. Doesn't bother me one bit unless I look.

Can you tell how long it's truly been?  Think I used up my thick dark stumpy mojo a while back...used it all up in my 20s perhaps.. ;-)  Hoping to go find some more after this tx poison is done.

I remember when I was very little and first heard the real names for this "procedure" I thought you had to either "blow" or "hum".

It's funny being a kid and trying to figure these things out without asking mom (not that she would have known - not in my imagination anyways) ;-)

Ditto. I got a papercut yesterday at work and you would have thought I'd be knifed straight through.

Of course I keep bandaids in my desk cause I'm paranoid about all blood now (mine or others) and went to get one and someone had taken them ALL.

I felt like standing on my desk and screaming "I HAVE A COMMUNICABLE DISEASE DO NOT TOUCH MY STUFF" but of course....didn't do THAT.
