|Today's doctor extravaganza

So I had to go back to the doctor today for a check up on my Acid Reflux Disease and get more pills for it... I also had to get some blood work done to check out my iron levels and such...I also wanted to ask her about this weird cut that I had on my finger that was all gross and puss filled...
So the doctor is going fine when I first go there, checking my BP and everything. Gave me more pills. And I mention to her the cut on my finger and she grabs my hand and is like "That is a bad infection. How long have you had it?" and I was like "only a few days" So she decides that I have to have my finger frozen and she has to cut out the puss. And I'm like, whatever, I'm already here, might as well. She takes this cool liquid stuff that freezes my finger right away and then takes the razor blade and cuts open my finger and squeezes all the stuff out. She said if it's still red in a few days I have to go on meds for it....weird.
After that, the nurse came in to take my blood. I had to give two tubes full of it. I give her my right arm and she finds the vein and shit and starts to fill up the first tube.. after it was full she disconnects it from the needle in my arm and starts to connect the second tube. But this time no blood comes out. Shes like "hm, that's weird." and of course I start to panic and think, whats wrong with my arm.. The nurse starts to jab the needle around in my arm trying to find blood... but she can't. So she said" we will have to use your other arm" So she pulls the needle out and then all the fucking blood starts coming out. She gave me this gause(sp) to hold it with to make it stop, but it still kept coming, so she put a bandaid over the gause and continued with my next arm. This time it goes fine.. but now I have two sore arms and a cut up finger.
Weirdest doctor experience for me so far....I am still convinced she messed up my vein and my arm is going to fall off...
