Does it feel like....

When you go for your blood tests whenever you need to, do you ever sit there and cynically think that you are being healed through the ancient practice of bleeding? Maybe I'm just cynical. ;) I couldn't help it this morning. I'm still healing from the bruise from my LAST blood test (Sept. 13). For those who aren't sure of the reference, Bleeding or Bloodletting is a medieval practice wherein doctors would cut a patient to drain the bad blood out. It's sort of along the same lines as leeches. ;) It is a terrible, awful, cynical thought. ...and somehow it's given me the giggles.
