I have to tell you I miss having my blood drawn every week and the pain from scraping my body to fill little vials. My blood inlets have stop itching and my arms and legs are almost totally healed except for the permanent scars I will wear as a reminder of this period.
It did however, created a connection to my body that I have never known before. A feeling far beyond anything I got from the gyms.
And yes, I know what this sounds like. It is not.
