Blood and vein issues, again!

Coming from a family with outrageously fine veins, I've always been considered lucky as I hardly ever have problem drawing blood for tests, unlike mom who usually requires yellow branula most used for babies.

In my attempt to overcome my fear of needles, I even managed to donate blood multiple times before they told me my blood is no longer acceptable.

So, what in heaven's name happened in the past couple of weeks that made my veins suddenly so fine and fragile? Three different lab technicians, four pricks plus a lot of probing in my veins later that they manage to finally draw some decent amount of blood.
