Bits of Tissue

My arm looks like I cut myself shaving.

I was trying to test my blood via my forearm and I got a bum test strip. So I threw the strip out and pricked again with my lancet, looking for a rounder, richer bead of blood. I got one.

And now I have a bleeder.

And I’m wearing a white, long-sleeve shirt.

I couldn’t get it to stop and my arm is cold (it is winter in Chicago, after all). So I stuck a piece of Kleenex on it. Just like the men in the movies do when they cut themselves shaving.

Only they never show you what happens next. Guess I’ll just wait a few minutes and peel it off and see what happens.

I hope the bleeding stops. I’d really like to push down my sleeves.

As always, more to come…
