I know that if I had a more positive attitude about this test, it wouldn't feel so miserable, but I'm pretty much expecting it to ruin my day. I'm looking for suggestions on how to minimize any side effects, though I get that they may be unavoidable. Will eating some high protein snacks soon after they do the blood draw help? Drinking extra water after my appt?
It's really the only thing I have to do that day, so I could just rest and not worry about it, but I don't like feeling bad--as if anyone does.
