Why Nurses Make Bad Sisters

If you can avoid it, do not allow your overprotective, paranoid big sisters to become nurses. It's not good.

A few months ago when I was home visiting, my sister saw me scratch and end up with these small red spots under my skin. She freaked out and started saying that it was a sign of leukemia and I should get tested. I told her to stop freaking out, because I just have fragile blood vessels.

So, now, I'm fatigued and in pain, and my mother (no doubt on my sister's bidding) called me and started talking about the cancer that runs in my family, my sister's skin cancer removal months ago, and how we'd never had anyone young with leukemia except my great-grandmother who died of it when she was 42.

I really need that when I'm already freaking myself out.

Anyway, the doc is supposed to call today with results.
