Today, I got my annual blood test. The nurse was inexperienced and it took her several tries to insert the needle properly. When I get back home, my fiancé starts yelling at me and storms out. The reason? I am a recovering drug addict and my arm appeared as if I had been shooting up. FML

This FML is too convenient to be true. I call shenanigans.

There's nothing to explain. This FML is FAKE because those who have ever injected themselves with drugs or other substances not prescribed by a physician can't donate blood.

they weren't donating, they were getting a blood test...

yeah got that. i read it too fast. geesh.

I double the call of shenanigans. Blood drawing rarely leaves noticeable marks, whereas shooting up is certainly more obvious. Fake FML

can't you just explain to him that it was the doctor..? if you're not shooting up, it shouldn't appear again so then he won't be mad for long

How is this an FML? It's a simple misunderstanding thats fixed with about 30 seconds of explaining.

He probably won't believe her since it is common for drug addicts who make a relapse to at first deny what try are doing. She'll tell him and even if he says okay (which may take a while of convincig), he will be ultra suspicious. FYL OP, you're doing the right thing, but, due to your addiction, people are almost always going to assume the worst.

theres not much you can do right now. let it die down and try to call him and explain. i can understand how he feels though also. my brother is also recovering, and we cant help but think the worst when things go missing or he doesnt call for a while.. :/

yes true but everybody can come up with a simple lie like that and it takes some people a lot to belive in what others are saying.

Good for you for recovering from your problem! I'm sure your fiancé will understand once you explain :)

That's jumping to conclusions, overreacting and being a bitch all at the same time! Your fiance's 3 for 3 Just explain it to her. It's not a huge deal.

I agree. I hate FMLs like these that are about people who are supposed to "trust" you jumping to the wrong conclusions without any chance to explain. Yes, the OP might look like she was relapsing, but he could have asked her about it instead of yelling at her then storming out.

your fiancé is a nucklehead and will feel like an idiot when he finds out the circumstances. no nookie for a week for punishment

FYL: Your fiance doesn't trust you enough to hear your story before leaping to a negative conclusion. YDI: Since you've obviously got more experience than the nurse you should have shown her how to do it

Well if the nurse was having trouble why didn't you help her out, if you have experience using needles? Honestly no disrespect, kudos for the recovery
