I always have a difficult time giving blood... not beacuse i am scared its just my body doesn't cooperate.... they usually stick me at least 5 timebefore they find a good spot... anyone got any suggestions to help me ease the discomfort of this idea... i have tried drinking extra water but it doesn't help and I have tried to suggest using the same blood sucker person.... any other ideas.. i also bruise easy...

I have the same problem. I have small veins, so they usually use a child size needle on me. As for the brusing, apply a lot of pressure to the area afterwards, it should help some. Best you can do is suck it up, you will be stuck a lot if you are pregnant.
