Default Routine blood test? haha

Okay, I had a routine blood test today. I've had 2 before, but this was the first time I had to fast all night, and this morning, but I got up pretty early to have it, so I didn't think it'd be a problem.

Well, I had it done (there were a few complications with the needle not extracting correctly). Anyhow, haha, I got up, and well, felt dizzy, like if you get up too quick after sitting down for too long. Got told to sit down, and fainted for a few seconds, apparently.
I woke up with 2 nurses above me asking if I was alright haha...

Thats never happened before to me, and I think it was probably because my blood sugar levels were low, and the blood pressure had dropped, but, haha, I felt so stupid leaving the room around 8 minutes later with old people sat down, looking at me as I walked off

Well, theres my story for the day. I'm now going to relax for a bit, take my bike to be pumped up, and head to check the models of cameras out a bit more at the shops.

Yep.... I blaim the fact I've never fasted before a blood test before, and this time I had to, so with that, and the blood pressure dropping suddenly... I felt well funny haha. I was surprised.

They lay me down, got me water in a cup (which tasted foul), and then asked me to get a chocolate bar or something at the cafe (which I did!!! An excuse to eat chocoloate? Oh yeah!"

I got a lift there, but had to walk back. I made it okay though.
I still feel slightly funny now to be honest.

I've had so many blood test that I can't tell I've lost any blood.

One of the benefits of being diabetic.

I passed out after giving blood on two occasions. Now I just tell them to take out half a pint instead of a whole pint.

I felt a little ill along with feeling like a fool, but the embarrassment and the sick feelings went away pretty quickly.
