Thanks for telling me about your experience. I really needed to hear some of that sort of thing. When I think about it logically, my veins are in the same location as everyone else's veins - no more or less vulnerable. They stand up on the backs of my hands and a little on my lower arms and I don't worry about that. I'm constantly nicking, bumping, bruising my hands and I haven't died from it yet. Why worry about my veins if I see them in a different location? Sometimes my concerns don't make any sense to me and hearing the experiences of others really helps me find normal.
