Sometimes a fist is needed to make your vein stand out a bit better, which will make it easier for the taker, and therefore easier for the giver...

This is exactly what the nurses do here.
To the original poster, they will probably ask you if you are afraid of needles or get faint at the sight of blood or needles. If you do, be honest with them and tell them. They will then be better prepared to help you. Good luck.

I always watch when having blood taken. I watch the needle going in and the little phials filling up - nothing about blood tests really bother me.
