How long can you go without bleeding

I thought i did good today, went to bed earlier and had a happy thought that i got thru the whole day without bleeding. I also am surprised that after a whole 2 years of having scabs on my shins they are finally healed.

Well i only slept for about an hour and i was up again and went to scratch my chin and jammed my thumb nail into my chin and the blood came gushing lol so there goes that happy thought

Then i went to put clean sheets on the bed as im doing laundry tomorrow and rammed my shin into the file cabinet drawer i have in the bedroom. So now i have a bandaid on my chin and my shin lmao

So do you somehow cut yourself on something every day like i do?

NOPE.........

Can't afford the blood loss.

I take 'rat poison' daily (Warfarin) to thin my blood.

W/O it I have VERY thick blood. Which I always thought was good...cause when I did injure myself or get injured I would quickly stop bleeding.

Then 3 1/2 yrs ago......1st blood clot.......injections 2X day in stomach for 6 weeks to get blood thinned and help dissolve clot then Warfarin for 1 year.
Doc took me off the 'rat poison' ......that lasted til last July when got another blood clot different leg this time.
More 'darts in belly' and back on Warfarfin.
Due to my blood chemistry I will now be on it for life


Now don't get any strange ideas...I do NOT walk around in bubble wrap

I still run with scissors but they have the 'rounded' ends




If you are a bleeder.....might want to increase your Vitamin K
Eat more greens......
Brussels Sprouts, Cabbage, Broccoli, Spring Onions, Cucumbers, Spinach, Celery, Collard Greens etc

Foods I need to limit/have in moderation......which I love

I don't have to check my blood sugar every day for diabetes but do to keep me on my diet.
I bleed the brakes on all the vehicles every other year.
The autocross race car gets a brake bleed several times a year.
Other than that, I have very good kitchen knife skills so no problems there.

My rule is the job isn't done unless I'm bleeding. I have neuro issues so I don't even realize there is a problem until the DW points it out. She keeps the worlds supply of bandaids on hand to cover whatever my latest wound is.

I'm sure I've gone a day without bleeding. I just can't remember when. I'm always tinkering in the workshop and somehow that always seems to lead to blood letting.

I was on aspirin and quit taking it due to always poking myself while doing yardwork, house and vehicle repairs.

Told my doctor and he was OK with it.

Hey, I was taking a leak about 20 years back. Looked down and there was a single drop of fresh blood in the bowl. I wasn't bleeding...I checked. Went to the doc, ran a bunch of tests on my plumbing and everything looked good. Still a mystery to this day

I still take a full strength aspirin tablet a day. I bruise and bleed easily from any bump or scrape I encounter during my daily activities. I know what you mean about the poking while doing your daily chores. For me, I guess taking the aspirin beats the alternative.

There are times I finish a project and say to myself....if I knew how blood I was going to lose doing this I would have hired it out.
