"It's value for money and gives closure"

Although my test arrived on the Wednesday, I waited until the Friday evening to do. For me, it just felt logical to do it at the beginning of a weekend rather than during the work week. The hardest part was actually getting a droplet of blood to form, the mechanics of doing the test was simple and clear. I won’t talk about how the actual test looked during those long 15 minutes but I will admit to shaking hands whilst prepping and once the test was in progress, I stood there and watched. I did tell myself prior that I would walk away once I confirmed it was working but when the time came, I couldn’t leave. Regardless of individuals results, it’s value for money and gives closure.
