I sat in the waiting room at the doctors office. I needed to get my monthly CBC blood work done for Clozapine.
I filled out the usual paper work and signed my name on the line.
I sat on the hard purple chair waiting for Mandy to call my name. She is the usual phlebotomist.
“Emmie” She called. I stood up and walked to her on my tippy toes.
I Sat in the chair, and she asked me my date of birth.
“9-23-88” i said.
“Please dont forget to count to three and use the butterfly needle” I said.
“Of course, anything for you my dear” Mandy wrapped the thing around my arm and counted to three. It didnt hurt. never does,
She only needed 1 vile this time.
She put on my band aid.
“Do i get a sticker?” i asked,
“Yep!” She handed me a Princess sticker.
“Bye Mandy” i waved.
