@LaDolceVita - My Mom had a problem too, and once she was getting a lot of treatment, she'd be all black & blue! My doctor recommended taking arnica before going for blood tests, and drinking a lot of water.

@ASTRAEA I have nonexistent veins.  I hate having blood drawn.

Though they portend a long, grasshopper-filled summer, I am grateful for these warm spring days.

Grateful to have, this, another day. A day of love, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. I'm up for that. Smiley Happy

@Maycyres Hello and welcome!

 

 

They say looking for something to be grateful for is actually beneficial to your health, so feel free to post your own thoughts of gratitude. Do it one time, once a week or everyday until the cows come home. And be well. Smiley Happy

Grateful for athlete friends who believe in me. And, yes, big bad hills and headwinds. Grateful for those too.

Grateful for blood, sweat and tears. (Also knowing race routes and finding appropriate facsimilies.)
