I had a simple blood test 5 days ago at my local surgery by a new nurse. The nurse put the needle in it didn't hurt. It seemed to be taking a long time. I wasn't looking or I would have said take it out it's not flowing properly. She then said It's coming out very slowly I'll move it a little. I had been feeling fine and not tense at all. I'm not worried about blood. The second she moved it I felt a terrible rush of emotion and burst into tears. She took it out but not immediately. I was then sick. I didn't have any pain. The tests were needed soon so she said I'll get another nurse to come in to help you. I was then lying down. I knew the other nurse and I said I wanted her to do it. She said she had been a nurse for 25 years. I said I don't care you're not touching me again. The other nurse came in took 2 phials of blood from the other arm so quick I didn't know she'd done it.
I was due to go to the dentist later and asked for a doctor to ring me back to see if they thought I should go ahead. They didn't ring back. I went to the dentist who said he didn't think I was my usual self and he didn't treat me. He didn't charge for the appointment and was more concerned about me than the doctors surgery.
I felt very emotional all day and wondered what she had done to me.
The next day I woke up and my immediate thought was I feel depressed. My shoulder was aching, and I still felt very tearful it was very strange. I don't know if it is medically possible but it was as if she had pricked the needle directly into my emotion. My arm also ached.
5 days later my arm doesn't ache but I do not feel right, still depressed and not motivated to do anything. I do not suffer from depression.
