It’s nothing major, but whenever I go to my doctor's for a blood test, the phlebotomist just can’t get the needle into a blood vessel, ie, I get stab a couple of times until they give up and use the veins on the back of my hand.

I won’t let them do that.   I’ve had to get that when I’m a patient, but when I’m a donor, I walk if they can’t get my blood.
