bleeding practicals

I'm OK! Just in case anyone was wondering (ok.. probably not!) I survived the blood prac. There was a little gadgey you load up with a fresh needle and then you press a button and it pricks you - but only about 2mm in. Then you squeeze it really hard and get some blood out. I was reluctant to press the button but it didn't hurt too much. I got ot test my blood type - turns out I'm just common old O positive - but safety in numbers - it is the most common blood group. And thats assuming my analysis of the 'agglutination' is correct.
