I came over from a linked thread to say that I have a clearly visible wrist pulse, but then I noticed that I was the OP for this thread.
Nine years later, my pulse is still clearly visible in both wrists.
I have a very bad time with IVs and blood draws. I used to try to give blood regularly, but always had problems, and was eventually told that it was too difficult and not worth it for me to continue. Fortunately, I haven’t had to have too many IVs, but the ones I’ve had have ended up having to be removed and replaced multiple times.
Not varicose veins, thankfully - didn’t even know you could get them on your arms. I’m just really pale, with thin skin. But thanks for the info, I’d always wondered (especially when they’re taking it every 2 yours). So by now I’m used to it and always wondered why they went for the “hidden” ones.
